Well, this is a coincidental topic right now, and I'm honestly pretty angry about it.

I reach out to my boyfriemd, but right now he has his own issues with his sick mom, work, etc. He uses his therapist to help him and that's it, he handles everything between them. So, to not add further burden to him I'm not bothering him...

I am sorry you feel isolated. Reach out here. Sometimes a strangers ear can hear more clear
nanette:
I know the feeling, I’ll tell my friends about my problems and they kind of brush it off. Like why did I open up to you in the first place? It makes me feel like I’m not wanted at all.

I didn't think I would ever leave this place, but I am. My membership is up in a few months and I won't be renewing. I love this place but it's no longer a fit for me. I rarely posted pics when I was with my ex, out of respect, even though my relationship was circling the drain. The main reason I...

I'll miss you, and have sure enjoyed reading your posts.

At your SO and wondered, 'how did I get so damn lucky?' Then think 'oh shit, they are so fucking sexy, I better step up my game lest I lose them'. Me. That's me. My boyfriend sent me a selfie yesterday, which he usually doesn't, and he looked SO DAMN HOT and I got all warm and fuzzy. Then my immediate thought following...

There are always other people (who are always also imperfect) out there.  For reasons which you you may or may not understand, and which likely go far beyond the physical imperfections you mentioned, he has chosen you.   Overthinking can be a great path to self doubt and sadness. Sure, if you want to do things, physical or otherwise, to improve yourself, go for it.  But, don't do those things out of fear.  Have the courage to see that he is drawn to you for the positives you already have.  If you want to do something to improve yourself, do it as a gift, as a celebration.  Then, it really is an improvement regardless of the other person.  If you're just doing it as a sort of "insurance" you're doing it for the wrong motivation and it will make you focus on insecurities that probably don't even matter.

We always, ALWAYS, focus on our own shortcomings, real or perceived. (Unless you're an arrogant prick, that is.)  I firmly believe that I married way better than I deserve. I just dont tell her that, because she might believe it. 😉

That is an easy question! Going to my friend's wedding this past fall. I found out she was getting married several months before the wedding and immediately said I was going. I RSVP'ed the day I got the invite. I am not a person who jumps into social events, I am introverted and shy, I am apprehensive about such things. However, my friend...

Your story brought tears to my eyes.. I'm so happy for you!
elaena:
Beautiful story! ❤

This one is easy. Have more confidence, self-esteem, self-worth, and don't commit yourself to one person for multiple years, enjoy the dating scene, then find 'the one'.

I lacked all of that. I thought I was fat and ugly, I wasn't. I was painfully shy, I still am but to a lesser degree. Compared to some of my friends, I dated very few...

it is hard to think about telling a younger self things, what if you changed eh? We are who we are... you are awesome

I had a very good weekend. Saturday my boyfriend came over and we spent the day together then drove to my friend's house [she is his cousin], it was her 30th birthday party. She always had themed parties, this one was a pajama party. My boyfriend, being creative as he is, got this little black, women's robe and some black silk boxers, he...

Sounds like a prefect weekend so happy for you

As a kid, I was tall for my age, like really tall. The doctor predicted I'd be at least 6'. I was 5'3" at 8yrs old, 5'8" at 14. I was thin, just a tall redhead with legs and a torso for days. Because of this, I wanted to be a model. Adults told me I could and should be one. I...

You are a real hero

I totally went through the phase like you, except it started around 11 and my boobs jumped to a c cup. I had nasty old men hitting on me which was gross and made me feel dirty. Hugs to your beautiful soul that works with animals. It’s tough and a beautiful career:

A few weeks ago my dog, Duke, suddenly became weak. I took him to work for x-rays and we saw his spine was getting worse and pinched a nerve. I increased his nerve pain meds [gabapentin] and it helped a little. He stopped eating. I was going to try acupuncture but we did bloodwork first because I noticed something was off. He has a history...

I'm very, very sorry to hear  this. I picked up my first dog when he was 8 weeks old. He died at my hand at 16. He loved me and I him. I still cry sometimes when I think of him, and that was 8 years ago.
