    A Shoulder

    He says I'm his shoulder to cry on. But she's his best friend. I wonder what that means. I guess that I'm there to listen to him whine and build him back up, so he can go have fun with her.

    So Many Times..........

    Friends, Family Members, Teachers, School Counsellors, Doctors, you name it, I've probably been betrayed in one way or another. That is one of the main reasons I don't trust easily & I don't trust fast. I have learned that just because they say they are your friend, that they...

    Betrayed.

    I can't believe of all people you'd be the one to do this to me. Actually, now that I think about it, I can believe you did this. He and I was together a year and two days, throughout that year I noticed how you ,my best friend, would always get angry with me when I didn't show...

    I Once Thought You Were My Friend...

    But then I realized you weren't. So I let you go, and you told my bro my every secret I had confided in you out of hatred and remorse. Possibly out of regret of not yelling at me instead. You knew it would hurt worse...but I still forgive you.

    Been There, Done That

    If I had a penny for each and every time I was backstabbed or screwed over by someone who was supposed to be close or special to me,  I would be richer than Donald Trump by now.

    It kills me inside the most

    when people say that they will always be there for me, but they leave in the end. ): It hurts less if the guy or girl never said that. Because if you say so, you must mean it.

    Trust and Betrayal

    I was betrayed by my father, mother, husband, sister, pastor, co-worker, and a best friend. But I have to admit that I also betrayed my sister and a friend, and perhaps others I can't think of right now.
