The Second Best.
I always feel like I'm second best when it comes to friends. Like I always feel like I'm not as fun or outgoing to be around.
She wasn't even asking for happiness, she was just asking for a little less pain. But, you couldn't even give her that?
She felt like crying but nothing came out. It was just a sort of sad sicknees, sick sad, when you can't feel any worse. I think you know it. I think everybody knows it now and then. But I think I have known it pretty often, too often.

The Helper.
Some people aren't good at asking for help, they're so used to being 'the helper.' Throughout their life they've experienced an unbalance give and take, so their instinct is usually "I'll figure it out on my own". The self-reliance is all they've ever known.

Eye Contact.
is how souls learn to ignite fire.
Eye contact can be the source of how souls catch fire. It'll either be in burning passion, or chard remains of an inevitable defeat.

Sometimes I wish that things could get really bad, so I have a reason to **** myself.
Sometimes I wish that nobody cared for me so that I could **** myself without feeling guilty.
And sometimes I wish that I wasn't this type of person, but I am.
I really am a bad person...

A Narcissists Mindset.
Stained Glass Jan 15
'-And if it did,
that didn't happen.
because it wasn't that bad,
and you're just overreacting
it's not a big deal
and if it was,
it's not my fault
and if it is,
I didn't mean it
and if I did mean it,
you made me do it.
It's your fault, not mine,
I'm the victim here,
and it's going to stay that way.'

Have you ever gotten in a fight with someone because you told them what was bothering you and instead of them apologizing they find a way to make you feel bad about it so you are left regretting even saying anything?
#"an apology without changed behavior is just manipulation...

I ruined so many things (for myself and those around me) that could've been amazing because I was sad.
Slowly learning that sometimes you have to make peace with the fact that you are the villain in someone else's story even if you thought you were doing the right thing. You don't get to tell them how to narrate their experience....

I am not obligated to explain my past and my abuse to you.
I am not obligated to tell you anything regarding my feelings.
And you are not obligated to know.
#Because in the end, it is honestly not any of your business.
#No one should feel as if they have to spill out their feelings and past in order to get along with you.

Hard Truth.
Stained Glass Dec 2019
There are some people who will hate you because of the way other people love you. They're the type of people that will be your friend as long as you're never doing better than them, you're always doing less than them, as long as they're always slightly higher than you in every aspect.

Waiting for someone to act correctly is a disrespect to yourself. You're compromising your worth because someone can't fully afford it.

Recovery is hard work. Not wanting to die is hard work.  Trying to ignore the calorie calculator in my head is like trying to ignore television subtitles and sometimes I just can't, body, forgive me.  Every time you asked if I was full I heard you say "fat" but I am trying so hard not to do that.

Strong Words?
Stained Glass Dec 2019
Whenever I say I hate something people feel the need to respond with "Hate is a strong word"
Well so is love and people throw around that word like it's nothing..
Such as:
"I love this,
I love that,
I love you."

Yeah, as a kid I used to think life
Is moving so slow, I watch it go by
Look out the window on my bus ride
I thought the world was so small, through my closed eyes
I've always tried to control things
In the end that's what controls me.....
