    If Only....

    I would love to have someone to cuddle with, build memories with, to take care of while they take care of me. I can't even remember what it feels like to feel loved, and safe in another's arms.

    Protect Me

    Growing up (with abuse) you rarely feel taken care of.  In fact it is more a feeling of being left to the wolves.  I have been taking care of myself ever since I can remember.  I fell into a life of taking care of those around me, so much so that no one has ever...

    After 13 Years

       After 13 years of being the one that has to take care of everything, it would be nice to be taken care of. This may sound weak or needy, but it is a very real desire in my heart. I don't mean all the time, just part of the time.

    If

    if my mother had taken care of me, my life would be very different. she was able to care for me to some extent, but that was limited to food and board. none of my emotional needs got met and so i have learned to meet them on my own.

    Carer

    Since my Mum died when I was 14 I have been a carer for my Dad. I feel like I don't have a Dad and long for someone to look after me. I hate the role reversal, I just want some love and someone to make things alright when they go wrong.
