    Unloved Or Unlovable?

    I sometimes wonder when I feel unloved (which is most of the time), whether it is because I am unlovable. Maybe in a strange kind of way we send out bad vibes that make us less lovable. What do others think?

    My Horrible Parents

    I guess I shouldn't feel this way because I had wonderful people in my life that did take care of me. But when your mother abandons you at 8 mths. and leaves you with a drunk father that only cares about his self then too leaves you then yes your gonna feel unloved. Thinking...

    My parents were never there to catch me when i'd fall. In fact they were the ones who threw me down. My emotional issues stemmed alot from the abuse my "father" Scott, inflicted on me. When i was 14 i was raped. When i was in 7th grade started cutting my wrists. By 9th grade...

    It's Probably Nothing to Worry About

    Hey, we are all apt to feel a little unappreciated at times.  The ones we love have a lot on their minds; maybe they don't know how we're feeling. This seems especially likely to happen to women.  I know it occurs to my wife about six times a day!  Ha ha. ...

    I Just Do!

    Although I have loved ones who love me, I still feel unloved. I wonder why? Maybe I'm depressed or just weird.
