    I want to be happy, but I'm afraid my work

    might suffer. I think most artistic people use their tough times as a source of inspiration and it seems that if they ever get too happy their inspiration leaves them and the spark is gone. I would love to have some problems disappear but what of my work? I need to find my muse...

    "You could find that an emotional issue rubs

    you the wrong way today, Sagittarius. Your tendency is to want to escape. Try to do so in a healthy manner. Go out and see a movie or read a book. Don't fall prey to the temptation to indulge in more dangerous pursuits. That would only push the problems away temporarily. When...

    Some point in life where you are put aside by

    someone you thought you deserve more than what you got. You treat someone as priority while they put you as an option. This is the time where your heart starts to weaken and tear by realizing you are not that important after all, that hurts. Ouch. Whatever it is, I hope I can...

    I deserve better. I am always too nice

    and it never works out for me in the end. I have a hard time sharing my feelings and when I finally do it's always a joke. I just want someone to understand me and realize that I deserve better.

    and I'm realizing how much she truly dislikes me. I'm not in the position to just up and leave although I would love to be and I'm realizing that I more and more willing to do whatever it may take to get away if I have to sleep with someone to do it. I'd rather take those risks...

    ..I miss my ex so much some days. I wish I didn't feel this way. I miss being happy. I don't want to get back with him...I just miss him. I am sick of crying and sick of feel like this for someone I don't want to be with.
