    I found out my former best friend of.

    .., dunno, almost 20 years has skin cancer. Just found out few hours ago, via a mutual friend of ours and I'm not sure how I should feel to be honest. We drifted apart from one another as people do, or did it have to do with the fact that he was a perpetual manchild who used...

    The kind of person I am,

    would be classified as too nice. So many people have stabbed me in the back that, not only is it extremely hard for me to trust anyone now, I've turned and offered for them to hit me in the front. But still they're never true to your face. When you turn around to their face...

    How To Stay Positive

    Lately, a lot of people have been asking me how I stay positive. You always hear people say that it starts with loving yourself, but I think it's the other way around. I say this because I don't love myself, but I have so much love to give. First, you have to erase the negativity...

    I don't usually complain

    but life is so difficult right now. I need to talk to someone and I am alone. I have lots of problems and they keep piling up. I was thinking tonight that I've been unhappy more than I've been happy in my life. Why is that? I have a great attitude, and always try to look at the...

    I am having trouble finding the words.

    I feel sad, I feel angry, I feel pathetic, I feel annoyed, I feel weak, I feel crazy for having all of these mixed feelings. I feel controlled, mentally. I feel stupid and silly. I feel like I don't have the energy to face the world. ugh.

    No one is required to agree. So if I post something I don't think it's right to get blasted or totally insulted. Someone wrote I should not look at teens posts as I am old enough to be their grandfather. First off, I have a 19 and 21 yr old and best not become a grandfather...

    My father passed away 6 months ago from brain cancer, he was the one who held our family together. He was my best friend before he went, and he always did secret acts of kindness around the house. My mother was very distraught the 2-3 months following his death. She wanted us to...

    if either is real. When he decides to come home, I am safe, I am comfortable. But when he leaves again, when he decides to take a vacation from me, I find myself alone. I am utterly alone. When I want someone to talk to, they're not there. Messages are left unresponded to. Cries...

    Not Responsible

    I took my car to get a car wash this morning. I didn't know that a Seinfeld episode was in my future. The wash was unremarkable to me. I left the station and made a right turn onto a busy highway. I checked my mirror and was surprised to find nothing in my field of view. The...

    This post will be about breakups, just so you know before you read (if you decide to read). My breakup has gone in very distinct stages. First I was lonely and sad, but ambivalent toward him. Then I moved to seeing him negatively. Now I'm in a stage of anger. I'm seething with...

    when you know that someone who was once a part of your life is going through a hard time, when you know they must be feeling sad and you can't reach out to them, even though you still care, because they have distanced themselves from you. It's hard to know whether to say...

    It's really painful when something you were

    hoping for with all your being doesnt happen. But it's extremely harsh when life gives you a taste of that thing you want then snatches it right back from you.

    who gets annoyed when people see a post, and instead of looking at the point the person was trying to make, they twist the words around to make it seem like something it was never meant to seem like?

    A letter to his ex. When you found him he was
