I'm scared of myself. My family has a history of depression, and I'm afraid that I might inherit it. I don't think I have depression. I love who I am, and a lot of times I am so happy with my life and I love everything about it, but other times....

Other times I feel like crap. I feel like crawling in a whole and forgetting about the world. I just wish everything could go away. I am always stressed out. I always have someone to impress because my greatest fear is letting down my loved ones. And today my younger sister got accepted into a college level math program, and I have always been the smart one. So, now I feel inclined to test out of my next level of math in school. I have been working on it for a while, but now I feel like I have to because otherwise my younger sister is going to pass me up and my parents will never let me live it down. They will do it as a joke, but they will tease my about how stupid I am and how I'm not good enough. They don't realize it, but this hurts so much.

Do you know how much it hurts when your mom calls you a bitch? Do you know how it feels when your dad rants about how stupid you are and how you aren't good enough? Do you know how much it crushes you when your parents rub in your face how much better everyone is than you and when they tell you: this is what your life is going to be and you don't have a choice, you don't get to choose how you are? Do you know how this kills me?

I love who I am, and I know that they love me, but they don't really know me. I will hear them talking to family or friends about someone and about what's wrong with them. How that person doesn't have enough self esteem or how someone gossips too much, and they'll talk about their points of view on something and they'll say how they hate that other people refuse to see it from their point of view. I hate that sometimes when they list the things that they don't like about someone, they don't realize that they created a child with those same attributes, me....

They don't know who I really am. No one does. I have tried to open up to people, but they just don't get it. I hope they understand, but I really don't think they do. I know I'm complicated. What human being isn't? I know I have flaws. Who doesn't? 

Or am I just insane? Am I going crazy from stress and anxiety? Am I slowly dying from the need to impress my loved ones?

This is why I am scared. I am scared from uncertainty. I don't know what I'm feeling, what I want, who I am, or what I should do. I don't think I have depression, but I just want to feel okay again.

I want the world to make sense again.

I'm scared. I don't know what to do. I'm scared.

She misunderstood

Ive know this guy for about 5 years. We stopped talking abruptly one night from an argument. Its been 3 years now and he's contacted me saying he missed me, still loves me. Want to see me and cant imagine never seeing me again, meanwhile telling me his lady is cheating and has cheated so many times. I try to give him advice and he 'takes it'. two days after talking to him after 3 years he stops communication, his cheating partner massages me and tells me in stepping in the way and i'm a skank (mind you i've been in a relationship for four years) and says I trying to steal her man, and that I could never compare to her..

He man has always said (and never said anything less than that I am the most perfect person, and that no one could step above me) Even while he was with her. He wasn't being a cheater but being honest. She thinks I was trying to steal him, but I was letting him know howich of a dirty cheater she was. ( and she is). We've always had something special and now...

Obsession for celeb boss taking over my life

My job as assistant to a celebrity is taking over my life to the point of obsession. I absolutely adore my boss and love being around her, in fact I even have sexual fantasies about her. But I'm feeling like it's getting too much and I may have to quit.

When I started working for her 8 years ago I was so happy as I admired her already. The sexual obsession came later as I became more immersed in her world and closer to her. On that front I'm not kidding myself - she's straight (I always thought I was too!), divorced and dating, and really more than that it's a status gap - I'm her girl that runs about organizing her life for her, and she appreciates me, but that's my level. And I'm cool with that, being part of her life it's own reward.

It's been an incredible ride! My boss lives between London and Switzerland, and travels a LOT - work trips to the US and lots of holidays to places like Italy, Thailand, the Bahamas, the Caribbean... I've seen places and...

I  m 25  from Montana (US) but have been working in India after my college since 2013, my work entails meeting different kinds of people and professionals on almost a daily basis. 3 years back I met this guy, he told me he was from Dubai, half Arab and half Indian Muslim..i usually don't encounter many people from other countries here..so after meeting someone who had come here to work from outside.. we hit off almost instantly.. he acted so caring and supportive and he was very charming..I was smitten.our friendship soon turned into something more...he proposed and i accepted.. From there on we started chatting a lot on facebook, meeting whenever wherever we could, we would tell each other a lot about our lives in our home country, about our faith, politics just anything under the sun. His views always seemed so secular.. so humane.. so just.. so righteous.. it was almost surreal.

I began to trust him completely and we got to third base. That's when things began to...

Who is this pretty woman?

The woman who plays Mandy Baxter in last man standing.  She is cute and lovely.  I watch the show and she is the first and last woman I see in the show.  She is just so adorable.  I wish I knew who she was.  Hanging out with someone like that would be so cool.  I don't know if someone knows, but if you do,  will you please tell me or if you know her, please tell her that I was asking about her.

I like someone

I like someone who will never in my lifetime or his think about me the way I want him to. I've only known him for almost a year but he's friends with the family. I feel like I make things awkward and that he wouldn't want me around when he visits but I'm always proven wrong. He includes me in every conversation. I'm not his type at all but I can't help it, he's stupidly cute. 

I found out my GF lied

I've been in a deep depression since I found out my GF lied about having leukemia so she could cheat on me. I feel like I'm not good enough for anyone and every time I feel better something happens and I feel worse than ever. I tried to do everything right and it makes me wonder if I'm just human garbage.

I'm a drug addict with no friends and no hope

I'm a drug addict with no friends and no hope. I'm alone and I'm scared and I just want to die.

Suicidal Thoughts

I constantly feel these suicidal thoughts... But I have had them for so long you would think I would be over it by now. All I can really think about is how much I want to die. I listen to sad music, hoping one day that it will be the last song I hear. I cry when no one is looking, and I hide it all away so they don't put me away. I just wish someone would kill me already... I am a very annoying person and I just get in the way. No one really cares, because if they did they would just end my suffering. I am an awful person who doesn't deserve life. I just want it all to end. I want to just disappear...

I really like this guy that I've recently met and he has a great personality, but in the looks department, he's a little nerdy, but he's cute. Ever since my brother got a girlfriend my parents have been saying stuff along the lines of "Hey ..., why haven't you gotten a boyfriend." Or "We now need to find someone for ..." The problem is I'm going into the theater magnet at my local high school and the problem is most of they guys are gay. My parents really want me to find a boyfriend and they been trying to look for the best guy for me. When I mentioned the guy I think is cute, my parents said "Oh ... you can do better than that, you need a guy who's more masculine. Hey .:: do you know any guys that are super manly and like theater." When my parents said this, I was shocked. The guy I'll admit, is a little feminine, but the fact that they said I can do better made me laugh. This is coming from a girls parents who was bullied severally and everyone hated during middle school. So,...
