    I have been very lucky in this life of mine.

    Or is that even true? My world always appears so full of light. The outer rims of my soul like burning torches of fire in the night. People around me smile. I feel warmth exude from their now healthy spirit. It happens to me everyday. My heart shouts out with joyful glee that...

    I just found out my boyfriend's friends have

    been pressuring him into breaking up with me because I'm a "normie." When they are all hipster weirdos. And my boyfriend told them he will and then he told them he did so they think we aren't together anymore. Which he says was to avoid the situation but that makes me feel...

    I'm just a girl. I love being called pretty,

    but I'll never believe it. I'm not always right, but hate admitting I'm wrong. I'm almost always smiling, but it's not always real. I can be read like an open book, but hide so much. I work hard at things, but don't always get what I deserve. I'm just a girl. (c)

    I am so tired of giving my 100%

    and then people throwing it away. I was in a long distance relationship with my first boyfriend for 2years. He cheated on me, it was terrible, he said he was depressed and suicidal so I forgave him and then he dumped me 6 months later. I was single for over an year. I finally...

    Hate when you give your heart to the one person

    who you believed to be your dream partner, best friend, soul mate but along the journey you start to notice the lack of appreciation and affection which makes you unhappy. No matter how many times your actions remind them how important they are in your life, they don't seem to...

    If people don't make an effort to be in your

    life, don't try to be in theirs; it's not worth it.

    We said our vows, and you promised to no matter

    Something is missing in my marriage.

    I love my husband more then anyone in this world. He has been my rock the past 9 years we have been together, but something is just not there. He doesn't listen to me. I've told him how important it is for me to get a card on my birthday or anniversary. My birthday just passed...

    As much as I love my girlfriend,

    last night I've come to the painful realization that it's best I end it. We didn't argue or fight about anything, I just think that she's so broken from past relationships that she doesn't feel the need to truly make an effort to keep me. No matter how much I sympathize or...

    Sometimes when I say "I'm okay,

    Valentine's Day a cruel holiday

    than me and very good at everything she does. I see her as a role model and sort of a mom to me. I care about her more than I can say. She's very kind in some ways (doesn't get angry at me for things most people would get angry at; very forgiving) but very callous in other...

    How much is too much?

    How long can you keep feeling unappreciated and disrespected until you just don't or CAN'T care anymore? I'm always drawn back to the quote that I seem I can relate more and more to lately. "Never push a loyal person to the point where they no longer care." Even though I...

    Ever since September I've had a crush on my

    physics partner and I haven't 'given up' because he gives me these signals I can't seem to interpret, and as much as they seem to say 'I like you' I tell myself it's all in my head. I just met my guy bestfriend this year, just like I did my 'crush' too. I've kept this bottle up...

    I just want to be held.

    I lay in bed at night and sleep alone. I do have a bf, but he's barely ever home because he's an over the road truck driver. I've been lonely lately and just want to have that safe, warm, secure feeling of his arms around me. I want to lay my head on his chest and my arm around...

    Sometimes I wish we had a little more control

    in a situation of two people having strong feelings for one another. I wish that we could just be happy together, but somehow there is always something that keeps us from being a couple. I don't know whether this will truly be the last time that we give in to our feelings and...

    Did you ever think that it is possible to sleep

    with someone without having a physical relation? Just laying there, talking for hours about how we feel, what we love, memories etc. Just enjoying to be with someone.

    After a breakup, there is a great feeling of

    My wife and son went to see Paddington last

    night. Midway through the movie I looked over at both of them and felt a surge of love for them. It's moments like that remind me why I'm alive.
