    I have recently discovered the act of ambient

    abuse (gaslighting). Before I knew this psychological abuse had a name, I knew I felt a certain way (usually crazy). I didn't understand why my reality felt so suffocated. Why I was thinking the things I was thinking. I began an extensive amount of research and discovered it was...

    My First Love, Taken Away...

    It could of all been so beautiful, so perfect, but at the same time it felt too good to be true... I've never felt a love like this before, in all of my 25 years of life. Ending up with a person that you connect with, that you bond with, that you can't see yourself living without...

    Some people need to realize how strong the word

    "hate" is. They need to think about it before they say they "hate" a person. Because when the person hears that, it hurts. It really hurts.

    Includes Everyone

    What I wish from others, I wish from myself too. I've hurted people, seldom on purpose but it happened. The very sec it happened I knew how my opposite would feel. It was often to fight back and I felt bad because I couldn't resist to pay back.

    It's interesting how certain people can just

    say one thing and that just sets off all your insecurities and it feels like they just stung you not even bothering to go behind your back.

    Really hate how others do what they want

    and expect you not to get mad. If you do half of what they do, you are a bad person. **** is not fair!

    Suicide isn't cowardly,

    I'll tell you what cowardly is. Treating people so bad that they want to end their lives. (I had a fight with my "friend" when she said, that suicide is cowardly. If she only knew.)

    It hurts to love someone.

    And not to be loved in return. But what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

    Some people just don't think about you feelings

    of other people. They are just concerned about only their. There is nothing wrong being concern about own feelings. But hurting other people and knowing how it feels , is wrong.

    I wish people could understand how their actions

    and words can affect and hurt the people around them. I wish they could be able to think about what they're doing and say "how will this affect my family and friends?" And then not do it if they think/know it will have a negative and hurtful affect on their family and friends.

    How to get away with everything

    as a woman: 1. Be sickeningly nice to people who can advance your goals. 2. Compliment everyone to their face, so as long as they are of use to you. 3. Steal the ideas of your intellectual superiors, pass them off as your own. 4. Speak in a sickeningly sweet voice. 5. Insult...

    "You," he said, "are a terribly real thing in a
