    Being Molested

    Is it right that my family has forgiven my brother for molesting me 13 years ago or is it wrong that I have not. He told my wife that I was really gay, I've been married for 9 years and have 3 kids.

    Stuck In The Past

    I have this problem where I'm stuck in the past and don't know how to get out. It's made me very insecure. I had a difficult past, though maybe it wasn't as bad as some people's. I have ADHD, and I had a hard time in school. I got sent out of the classrooms all the time, and...

    I Don't Want to Be a Doormat

    I seem to keep repeating the same mistakes, like letting the same people take me for granted, over and over. I just wish I could stop doing this, but the hardest part is that no matter how hard I try, they just don't seem to get the fact that I am not fully to blame.
