    It'S Impossible

    What is 'stay strong?' How can I stay strong when I wasn't even strong in the first place. I have never felt strong. In other words strong has never felt me. I will never be strong. I'm tired of pretending I'm strong while people who know I cut are all like, 'I'm very proud of...

    My boyfriend had an emotional affair

    and I'm having a very hard time forgiving him. He can't tell me why he felt so attached to the girl and could only let her go when he was confronted. He was in complete denial previously of the relationship. I verbally attacked the girl and now I feel like I'm restricting him...

    If I had an average amount of resistance to

    verbal bullying, I wouldn't have much of a childhood. & my self- confidence would probably be smashed. Instead it's at a fairly average level. If you were to meet me you'd probably be suprised by my positivity levels. I'm almost as positive as the most positive you could be. I...

    Maybe it's finally time.

    Perhaps we have truly reached our breaking point. In my heart I feel it's not over, it's never over. But, for some time it needs to end. 18 months is a long time to get to know someone. You see their true colors, you see them in their trying times, in their ugly times. You see...

    Humans have the habit of assuming they know all

    there is to know about someone. Even after being emotionally and intimately involved with a certain person for a period of time covering numerous incidents, trials & tribulations, and personal problems one is destined to go through, i think you never actually know someone. There...

    I write so much about not playing the role of

    victim. Don't fall victim don't let anyone make you their victim. To be honest. I enjoy playing victim. To an extent. It's something weird about me but it's also good. In some dark twisted way I feel and believe that if you were to do be something wrong, to mess with my head or...
