    I Wish The People I Liked Here Knew Who I Am

    I made a lot of friends here and then was forced to delete my old profile. Seems a certain troll stalker wanted to make my life miserable here. I decided that I have better things to do than to block 100 fake profiles every day while this nut ball attacks me through them, so I...

    Growing up with eyes

    that saw everyone as nothing but bullies doesn't make the process easier. For that I'm slightly antisocial, shy, and terrified of getting hurt again to the point where I don't give people chances.

    My best friend goes to school pretty far away

    from where we live and it's not a normal college it's a federal academy so she's not allowed to come home much and her phone privileges are scarce for the most part. I love when she comes home from breaks, this past one was two weeks long and it was amazing, but now she went...

    Why do I want him to always want to be with me?

    You'd Still Be In My Life If They Were

    I wish you'd have told me right away that you didn't want to be my baby anymore I wish you'd have had the capacity to be there for me, even as a friend, when you knew I was going through hell--instead, you made things worse for me. I wish you didn't always detatch and shut me out...

    That I never talked to you

    and that I didn't fall for you. It's hard enough to process that you don't care and I need to accept that. It's a struggle and coping was never easy for me. All I can do is keep busy but I still think about you. You invade my thoughts everyday. I need to get over you but I don't...

    Up to ...who?

    It's sad when you forget about people you used

    My husband is an addict.

    He went to rehab 6 months ago but I am sure he is using again and I just don't think things will ever get better. I don't know what to do. I can't even talk to him about it because it just turns into a fight. I don't want my son to see us fighting all the time so I am just...

    I wish I wasn't so shy.

    I wish I could stop relying so heavily on someone else's opinion. I want to let go of everyone's misconceptions of me. No ones opinions about me should matter as much as mines do. I want to let go of the negativity and just be me. Alas, I wish things were different than what...

    Time passes and things change all around me.

    I know what I should do. But I have no motivation to do anything about it. I should exercise and cut carbs and stop the endless anxiety that haunts me. I know that the former two will help resolve the latter. But. I. Do. Nothing. My brain is a weird place. A dichotomy. The...

    I Wish...

    I wish that my relationship was different. I just want him to love me unconditionally. I want him to stop talking crap about me because of his own insecurities. I wish that he would stand up to other people when they talk bad about me, instead of joining in with them. I wish...

    I wish things were different.

    I wish you could comment on my posts without offending others. I wish I could comment and send you fun gestures or notes. I wish I could show the world how much I care for you but I openly can't. I am truly the other woman. I am someone you have in your life that you care for...

    Wish I'd Stop Wishing

     I wish I was born into a happy family with a married couple and a brother. I wish I was prettier. I wish I had a guy who loved me to death and that we could be happy together. I wish I never got caught in the web of self-harm. I wish I could sing better. I wish I had...

    Wish I Had More Money

    I wish I had more money. I wish I had more money to travel, to eat the things I want, to buy the clothes that I want, to do nice things for my family, to get furniture for my home, to be comfortable. If I had that I know so much would be different in my life. I know it is...
