    I Think We Really Struggle To See From Other's Perspectives

    Right now I'm remembering a close friendship I had that ended suddenly and painfully. Probably it was a misunderstanding on both of our parts, but nowadays she and I are strangers. Not even acquaintances, just strangers. Our friendship ended in great anger. I think both of us...

    I get it, that's why I'm too nice to people.

    I just know how it would make me feel, and I don't ever want anyone to feel that way. It's actually really exhausting. I over think too much ****.

    Yes I do wish this! That way people wouldn't be so negligent of others. They wouldn't act so harsh, so indifferent toward emotions.

    I Tried, But Made Things Worse

    When my boyfriend cheated on me after spending months flirting with another girl, I so badly wanted him to feel the hurt and inadequacy that he'd made me feel. I never really thought that his guilt might have been bad enough. A few months later, we split up for a while and when...
