    So Unhappy I Can'T Even Think Straight

    I think about getting away everyday. I'm so unhappy and can't stand my husband. He is emotionally void and we live three states from my family and friends. We live in a small town where it is just impossible to make new friends. Believe me Ive tried. It's so cliquey here. Even at...

    You Said It Would Be Ok...

    You said it would be ok, you said I would be fine. You told me that I was ready. You were wrong. I believed you when you said that I would shine, and that is the worst part. Everyday, I feel like nothing. Like I've embarrassed myself and have now been banished to oblivion, and...

    I Feel Lonely...

    Sometimes I feel like I want to go away, make the people closest to me regret what they've done. I feel I deserve the pain, because when I was younger I was abused by my domestic helper. Mentally, verbally, and physically. She told me I'd never be good. She told me I'd always be...

    Damaged
