    High Hopes

    Getting your hopes up to high never ends in something good in return. I was suppsed to hangout with my ex so we could talk about whether we are going to try and be friends. Him and I have a long past and it's one of those ones where we are better off without one another since we...

    Theres No Point.

    So many times I've been let down. Some of my friends were like we can go to a theme park last month but it never happened. Another one of my friends promised that she would do something with me and she never did. So many times people say they will go out somewhere with me or do...

    Cause When I Do.....

    I got my hopes up that my crush liked me. Every single little tiny sign that could possibly give the impression that he did gave me hopes up. Just everything I took as he liked me and got my hopes up. But in the end.....my hopes were crushed down by reality and truth and I...

    Hope and Faith

    I wish I didn't get my hopes up because they usually go wrong and I cry. Once I bought skates and they didn't work right, so I got very upset. Stupid but I just wish for once something would go right.

    Was Really Wanting This One.

    Since I've been getting out more, my agoraphobia has drastically improved.  I know that it fluctuates, based on past experience, so I'm not banking on this change being permanent, but I've been enjoying the freedom while I can.  Sunday night I got a call from a...

    If At First You Don't Succeed, Don't Skydive

    "There is no sadder sight than a young pessimist, except an old optimist." - Mark Twain  I should have known.  I'm not good at relationships, but I'm great at finding crazy people. I'm like the German Pointer of bad relationships. If I was in a room with 1...

    Expectations, Expectations

    Promises are expectations - at least they are to me. That's why I don't get my hopes up. Sometimes I feel like I'm let up only to be let down in the end. So many people have promised so much but it doesn't really seem like a promise because all they do is forget. Forget what they...

    My Policy In Life

    I expect to be disappointed with everything. That way, if it happens, I saw it coming and it doesn't hurt as much. And if it ends up happening after all, I am pleasantly surprised. I'm happier this way because allowing myself to get excited over things just hurt too much, and...

    It Has Never Done Me Any Good.

    In almost twenty years, getting my hopes up has gotten me nothing.  Just like tonight, just like any other night or day.  From now on, I shall take on an attitude of pessimism.

    Should.......

    I really really should know better by now. I allow myself to believe in people and their bullshit promises. I let my guard down, they creep in, set up camp in my head, become the itch under my skin, then drop me like a hot stone for no reason. When they are made aware of the...
