Anonymous: That happened to me, too. He left me because my anxiety disorder got out of hand. I was constantly having attacks and i was weak and felt sick most days. Though we loved each other, he told me one time i was a "piece of work who needed too much love." Way to shoot someone down who just needs someone to hold her hand, you know? But yes. We all need a best friend. We all need someone who won't leave no matter how "insane" we are. We are all humans & should all be loved. 

That guy who said that to you is fucked. You deserve better. 
And I may have said horrible things to D last night, just because he hurt me so badly. I feel horrible, but I know if I apologize, it’ll just make things worse.

Anonymous: You're welcome for the message. I feel that way a lot, too. I feel kind of lost and alone and I stare at my phone screen waiting for one person to text me. but he doesn't care anymore. So it's really important to be here for other because life isn't easy and we all need support. So I'll be more than happy to be your support, know your always have someone in your corner cheering you on. Life is always a bit crazy, but you can do this 

Thank you. I thought I found that in another person. I thought I found the guy who would be there through everything. And he took off on me. I think he started to feel more than he wanted to. We both started to push each other away. 
And he just left. And I told him I wanted to die, that I felt so alone all the time. And I almost killed myself and he called me and said he would call the police—that he would miss me like hell if I did it.

And tonight, he told me to lose his number. That I’m insane and he can’t help me and he wants nothing to do with me. 

I am so tired of people leaving. I’m so tired of people going out of their way to hurt me when I’m already hurt. I’m so fucking tired of it. I need someone to lean on who won’t take off. 

For the love of god, I need a true best friend

Anonymous: i've been to the place you reblogged (the old bridge) it's Mostar in Bosnia :) 

That’s awesome! I’m totally jealous!


holding anger is poison. it eats you from inside. we think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. but hatred is a curved blade. and the harm we do, we do to ourselves
