    My mother literally just told me how much I

    Family Betrayl Was A Sucker Punch

    Found out a few days ago that my grandma was talking crap about me to my brother's girlfriend when they were visiting with her last month. Not only did I find out that she's been thinking all of these things since I was just a little kid, but I found out from someone my grandma...

    Nope

    Waiting In The Distance

    I'm still waiting. Waiting for someone to be okay with me just being me. Waiting for someone to not care that I'm not perfect. Whenever someone's feeling down about a lack of friendship, a relationship, or the fact that life isn't going exactly as planned, the response is always...

    Truth

    The truth always hurts no matter how much you hide it. It always shows in your eyes. All the chill runs through your heart. You complain it's a lie but deep down you know that their right. Deep down your afraid it's the truth. Your afraid that they know something you don't.

    It's a nagging constant feeling that I have that I'm never good enough for anyone. Low self esteem and a serious lack of confidence definitely messes a person up.
