    One friend made me feel pretty

    and smart. Another made me feel wanted. Then another friend made me feel accepted. My mom also makes me feel all this. But I don't feel this with my dad. I need it from him too and it's almost like he refuses to give it to me.

    Most of my life I have lived alone,

    been alone, a solitary existence. I am complete as a man. But i am not enough, my true self needs more. A man is just a shell, a vessel, a mode of transport. A soul needs more. A soul needs life. A soul needs lessons. A soul needs experience. A soul needs to teach. A soul needs...

    And now I do... My mother was a drug addict

    when I was younger, so she really was never there for me. I had sex with 3 guys when I was 12 because they all seemed to really like me. It was only later I learned that I was the "ultimate prize" because I was cute, blond and white. Most the people in my neighborhood were...

    Before my parents left they asked me what I

    wanted for dinner and I said anything you pick up. They said okay. A couple hours later my parents come home with dinner. They bought my little brother food, themselves food, and my dog food.... but no food for me. Their excuse was that they didn't know what to get me so they...

    I feel like my love for him is stronger then

    his is for me. He doesn't call me anymore unless I ask him to, he doesn't say anything sweet to me anymore unless he's "in the mood." which he never is, he doesn't get me things anymore, he doesn't plan any dates. I have to plan everything, I go out and get him things all the...

    Invisible. It's all I am to this world.

    People who don't know how that feels will tell me I'm full of crap and should just suck it up. Well let me tell you something, I've tried for over a year, I've tried so hard, but I've been put down over and over and my only way is out is through books, music, and bloodshed by my...

    Just broke up with my abusive ex.

    I've gotten spit on, food thrown at me, elbowed in the throat, thrown into a counter by my throat , lied to about him selling drugs behind my back, and called every name in the book. He also likes every girls picture on social media except mine and yelled at me when I would post...

    My family means a lot to me

    and would do anything for them. The problem is that that they do not reciprocate this especially my parents and it really really hurts. My sister was always preferred, she gets praised for her achievements and parents get so proud that the whole village would know about it. On...

    I wish more people paid attention

    and listened to me. The only person who actually did broke up with me about a month ago and I no longer feel like I make anyone's life better or more meaningful.

    I miss love too. It feels like it's been forever

    and I have been depressed and felt very negative about myself, even though it's barely a year since the divorce. But no more! I'm tired of my life, but I am the one who can change it. I am hopeful. Love is out there, waiting for me, I just have to go and see if I can find it...

    If we're honest I'd say we all have this

    as a basic human need from childhood onwards. Probably a lot of emotional problems that a lot of us have can be traced back somehow to a lack of this in the earliest stages of life, or so I think some schools of psychological thought theorise.

    Some people say I'm to needy

    or an attention ***** but I seek it because I don't get it from the right people like the people I love and care about. Call me an attention ***** if you want but just know that there is a story behind the way I act, and realize that my actions tell this story.

    Having a crappy birthday again nobody offers to

    spend time with me ....feeling kinda unlovable today I guess I put to much emphasis on the day probably use it like a barometer or think it's a magnified indicator of how my life relationships are at. It's not just this year it's every year .

    My husband is like an excited little puppy

    when we have sex. He doesn't even get it in and he's already ***. I never get mine. It hurts my feelings. Then if I tell him no later that day or the next day, he gets really mad. It makes me feel cheap and used.

    I genuinely don't love myself.

    I mean I put on a facade and try like everyone else. But I don't, not really. I have good moments, but is everyone else struggling with this? A weariness of our personality or character.

    My mom has always been kind of depressed.

    Not exactly depressed but something like that. She´s very often mad and angry. She got worse when she and my dad got divorced like six years ago, so i think she is kind of still getting over it. But she has a boyfriend and he and his son are moving in with us. But that is not...

    for three years. I have been lied to and disrespected so many times, I have completely lost trust in this man. He says he cares, but don't actions speak louder than words? I am very angry over all of this and find it hard to believe anything he tells me, even the truth. We...
