I Need to Vent

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,871 People

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

    innocence and light, his spark brightened a whole room, his laughter warmed everyone around him. You stole him away from his friends and family. Then you treated him like ****. In your fear of losing him, you controlled every aspect of his life. His time, his money, his...

    Your face, your presence,

    is a constant reminder of what I could never be, that I'm the failure reflected in your eyes when you look at me. I wish I didn't hate you so much, then at least, I wouldn't have to argue with myself that I only ever hated you because I loved you. Sometimes I wonder, If that...

    On Narcissism in Today's Culture I'm speaking

    about U.S. Culture, just to clarify, can't really speak for anywhere else. Anyways I've noticed that nowadays a sense of narcissism is being fostered in youth. Everyone is raised constantly being told feel-good messages in school. Constantly being told that they are special and...

    These military significant other groups really

    irritate the hell out of me. Why do you feel the need to be distinguished over another for a career that ISN'T yours? Why do you feel that said career affects you more than the careers of anyone else in relationships? He deploys and is away from home for a while? So are...

    I can't believe my boyfriend broke up with me.

    This just goes to prove that no matter how much time he says he loves you and that he'll never leave you and that you guys will get married one day and own a big house; he'll still break up with you.

    If I could have a new mom

    that would be great. My mom is the most bipolar person I've ever met. One minutes she's there to support me the next she's screaming swearing at me. She's psychotic and I just want to get away from her. I've been depressed lately and she says it's because I'm on my phone so she...

    Even when people are talking about their "deep

    inner emotions" they're still being kinda fake. What even is genuine? I am so angry and discusted idk if I should just laugh this off and ignore it or what but I just can't piece it together if people are as jacked up as I think?

    The closest things I ever met to a rebellious

    spirit were actually some "jocks". I can just tell by how they'd interact with me, even though they only date in their fake circle. Drives me nuts though because I see how they look at me and mess with me

    now wishing for somebody in my life. I am only 22 but the older I get, the more I deeply desire to have true love. I'm frustrated by prayer and waiting. I'm still young, but I don't see this changing a year to five years to ten years... And more.

    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...

    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...
