    She invited me over "to fix her computer.

    " Over and over she invited me over, and we'd sit and talk, and sometimes I'd hug her or rub her shoulders, but she wouldn't let me kiss her again. I told her I loved her. Oh how I wish I hadn't. But I thought she was a professional. An Analyst. Turns out she couldn't control...

    3 Years Later I Still Hurt

    I met him on a dating site shortly after graduation from nursing school and he seemed to be a potentially stabilizing force. He was laid back, kind and totally about me. He jumped at the chance to spend time with me whenever he was could, asked to meet my child and set up a lunch...

    That'S What I Get

    Tonight I Was Reminded

    I was reminded of why I cant trust you. Your lips speak nothing but lies. Your eyes set to kill. I loved you for 2 years and gave you my all but you still went to that party and you still screwed him. I hope trading my trust was worth the quick ****.

    for this, but I was talking to someone I met online. He did everything right- he showed me not just pictures, but his own face on Skype; he told me all about his life, and he called me and sent me text messages regularly. It all came crashing down when the truth was revealed...

    Violation of Social Contract

     Everyone has been “betrayed” by someone, whether it’s broken promises from parents or a complex web of deceit concocted by a perpetrator. The motivation of the person who abandons the presumptive confidence you gave them, both puzzles and repulses me. I...

    Heart Of A Wounded Woman....

    I Feel Like An Idiot.

    I'm always finding myself being betrayed by others, especially those who I considered close to me.Each and every time that I think I have learned my lesson in trusting my friends or family, It happens all over again. One day I'm just going to say **** it and shut everybody out.

    Friend?

    The measure of a good friend is standing by your side, not only when you reach rock bottom, but also when they do. It's easy promoting your character when nothing's at stake. Words are free, after all. No one's perfect and I don't look for perfection. But claiming to have my back...

    This website is full of censorship.

    Why does it even exists? What use is there in giving those a voice who are proven to lack consious? Am I the only one that is so hostile towards narcissism? I think they are bad people. Fight me.
