    A Shunned Father

    My story is similiar to probably many other, maybe. I was married at 17 years old to a 16 year beautiful girl. We would go on to have two beautiful daughters who were spitting images of their mothers. Throughout our marriage, we faced a number of economic adversities which we...

    Just Listen. Not Judge Or Have An Opinion

         I know I am very smart, but I don’t like to tell people because I know I will seem like I am bragging. And I hate compliments.  I hate it when people say you are good at something or say that your work is good, but in my heart I cannot accept it as so. Right now my...

    The Truth

    Someone who believes that I am really true, that everything I say comes out from a heart full of honesty. Someone who will never have any pang of regret to accept the true person that I am now, then wrap me with loving arms whispering, "It's okay. I believe you. I understand. You...

    Just Listen For Once...

    The past three weeks for me have been hell, on top of all the rest of the things that have been happening to me. Would anyone just listen to me? The many people that I have tried to talk to either stopped talking to me, forgot about me, or decided to "give up" when there was...

    sometimes it's completely the wrong thing for the moment. I recently wrote a story about being "the other woman". Today things got heavier - the married man and I admitted our feelings for eachother, our confusion, and where we're headed. It's all pretty involved. I'm feeling...

    Nobody Knows How To Listen Anymore

    Are we so caught up in our own selfish pursuits that we cannot listen to those who need listening to? Perhaps it is American culture to never show weakness and to shun those who do, but I have never met anyone who wants to listen to someone's problems. I hate hearing people...

    Significant Other Self Absorbed

    My SO doesn't seem interested in my life unless it's something he can brag about. When I want to tell him about my day I feel like I have to get it out fast or I'll lose his attention. He doesn't make eye contact. It's so disheartening.

    Within The Right Boundaries

    I feel a lack of friendship in my life.  I need someone who wants to listen and wants to help without being selfish.  I also need someone who isn't going to turn it into an intimate relationship.  I just want a friend.

    I want you to listen.

    Don't try to give me advice, I asked you to listen not for advice. Advice is plentiful, but hardly anyone actually listens. I'll ask for you advice if I want it. But right now people just listen, don't judge, try to understand

    because everytime I do, I either get judged or they leave me. I just wish someone would listen to me and try to understand how I feel without thinking I'm crazy or a freak. I want someone to talk to about what I'm going through..
