    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?

    It's Probably Nothing to Worry About

    I Had a Friend Who Made Me Feel Like I Wasn't Worth Loving

    I know that people love me.  I know that.  I'm very grateful towards those people, but sometimes I feel like I'm drowning and the people that I want to be there aren't. I know I've told this story a thousand times on ep, but a year ago a long time friend who...

    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...
