I Need to Feel Loved and Appreciated

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 41,333 People

    After 1 year of no communication with my ex,

    I've decided to reach out to her to be friends. Now I don't want to be her friend because she isn't putting her all into being friends. She doesn't deserve my friendship or me in her life at all.

    One of the best things in life is finding

    someone who knows all of your flaws, mistakes, and weaknesses, but still thinks you're completely amazing.

    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...

    Ironic. I was just talking to an EP friend

    about how I constantly feel worthless and invaluable. Then I found out that someone on here blocked me. So much for any hope on feeling valued.

    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)

    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.

    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.
