    If you see me crying it will be at a movie

    or due to someone passing away (God forbid). If I get my feelings hurt or you make me upset, I promise you will NEVER see me cry! Those tears are reserved for my pillow!

    It doesn't matter that you hurt me,

    that almost entirely forgotten. However, what bothering me is that you have made me believe that I will never be good enough for anyone and that I am not wanted by anyone. I have been feeling like this for a while now, I'm starting to accept this feeling as well.

    I have been a committed (on

    and off LDR, currently LDR) relationship for 2 1/2 years . I feel silly for being upset but recently he has not been sending good morning or goodnight messages.. I send them but his responses seem lack-luster and as if he doesn't care to send them.
