    Reassurance

    There are times, I do need reassurance.  I mostly get it from my husband.  He always has been a supporter, I cannot deny it and I am grateful for it too since it helps.

    I'm Needy

    I need a lot of things. I need my boyfriend to tell me that he loves me (without me asking for it in one of our intense convo's). I need my boyfriend to tell me that he wants to be with me and he see's our future like I do. I need to be held. I need to be kissed (not a kiss on...

    Me and my boyfriend (he is getting promoted to

    Just A Little Push

    Reassurance .... what a great word. Isn't it amazing how powerful words are? I mean they can build someone up into a better person or even tear someone down given enough time. The last few days I've had to mentally and because I talk even if I'm the only one listening, verbally...

    I Test Them....

    Sometimes don’t you think, when someone is too close to you, that you should warn them “don’t get too close or the flaws begin to show”. Or do you allow the closeness, the flaw seeing, in hopes that they will too, show their flaws. Or perhaps you are so open and honest...

    Sometimes I Am Ashamed Of How Much I Need It....

    I am ashamed that at 25 I am STILL so reliant on others for approval and reassurance. I think it is because I have never felt accepted by my mother. I feel like she is secretly (and sometimes not so secretly) very disappointed with the person I have become. I am single, have no...

    The Illusion Of Safety

    It's sounds pathetic

    but I am unable to make decisions that involve other people, without reassurance. I can make decisions on my own about my own life and own things, but if they involve another person, even my mother or boyfriend, I can't do it without a helping hand from someone.

    Even Though I Pretend I Don't

    I think it's human nature to have insecurities. Of course some have more than others, but I think we all have them in some form or fashion. I am insecure about a lot of things and sometimes my insecurities vary depending on my mood, on my state of mind at the time. I am good...

    Not Often

    I prefer to see results and progress. Sometimes, however, I could use a reminder that problems don't last forever and that it is possible to overcome them. Sometimes, I just need someone else to keep me from falling too far, because it's hard to get back up when I've fallen too...

    All Alone

    Sometimes when I'm all alone I need some reassurance that I'm loved. Anything small would be nice, but when I'm alone for a long time I need to be reassured that I'm still loved and I wasn't forgotten.

    Today was good for that.

    I worked a lil, taking care of someone really. When I came home my landlord was having a party and they both piled food and drink into my hands and made me feel welcome. So different from many days before, and so welcome a change! Life is good now.

    Aw, Bless

    From the moment we're born to the moment we die we seek reassurance in almost everything we do.  The entire facade of our existence is a way of reassuring us against the loneliness of rejection and eventual obliviion.  We want smiles, cuddles, laughs or emoticons that...
