Fuzzy childhood memories
I don’t remember much from my childhood. It was a terrible time though. My adoptive dad was an alcoholic, a really mean and scary one. I remember one time when I was around 5 years old, I was trying to get his attention and talk to him and I had been in the room for hours with him sleeping or playing by myself. Then I saw that he was looking at a bunch of naked people on the computer, I came up behind him and he didn’t say anything but he knew I was there. I stared a little longer at the people on the computer because I was confused. I didn’t understand what it was, I actually thought it was some sort of art or something. (We had artsy pictures hanging up all over our walls) I felt a little uneasy but that’s all the memory I have of that certain circumstance. I also used to pee my bed a lot as child until I was 12, I have a lot of missing pieces of time from my childhood from ages 4-11. He eventually re-married and I thought I had a new normal family. It wasn’t. There was a girl and her mother who came to live with us, the girl often used stuffed animals or a blanket to masturbate, we were around age 6. I had never heard of anything like this before and she said it brought her comfort. Her mom just let her do it and didn’t think anything of it. I don’t know why but she tried to show me and get me to do it. She did it in the same room as me a lot of times. I don’t know why I have these specific memories but I do, I also have some other ones but as soon as I try to think of more than one memory my mind gets all fuzzy and I start to forget everything.
Anxiety over losing him
Not exactly a secret I guess, but something I want to get off my chest. I think I’ve found the love of my life, and someone who I can see myself marrying someday. I can’t tell if this is foolish thinking or I’m being naive. I guess my "secret" is that I’m terribly afraid of ever losing him, or messing things up and not being able to repair them... I know that I would lose my best friend and the love of my life, and I don’t believe I’d ever feel close to the same way about someone else as I feel about him. I think this is it for me, and he’s it for me. It’s scary to have this much pressure I guess, on not wanting to lose my potential soulmate for the rest of my life. I never want to do anything to jeopardize our relationship, but this overthinking is stressing me out because he means the world to me and it’s scary to not know what the future holds.
Overwhelmed by guilt due to cheating
I cheated on my fiancée. I hate myself and feel overwhelming guilt all the time. I cannot see a way out of it apart from telling him but this would destroy him, our relationship and our family. I know I won’t ever do it again but I cannot stop these feelings of loathing from going away and I don’t know how to cope. I am truly sorry for what I did. Please know I love you.
Hots for co-worker
I have a crush on a colleague but I am married.
Hots for my neighbor
I want my neighbor… bad.
Crush on my friend turned sour
Every day I feel weird about my friend or being near them. We had a good friendship but I did have a crush on him so I asked him out. He left me for a friend of ours. I cried at my kitchen sink and broke down and haven’t been okay since. I still hang out around them but I’m miserable on the inside.
Treated me poorly for a decade
The man I have lived with for 10 years (except for four months last year) has never let his phone out of his sight. He never answers when I call. The only time he did was when he wanted me to look bad at work. To this day he has never responded to a single email I have sent him. He has never made me feel as if he thinks of me in his future. He has never made me feel like a part of his life really. He talks about me like I am a distant acquaintance. Just a roommate and hardly a friend. During the four months I was gone I was with someone who included me in everything he did and his whole family treated me as one of the group. This is something that I greatly need as I have not had a family of my own to speak of ever!!!! I just don’t feel like he even wants me around at this point. In fact, I think this is all a joke. Being in a relationship I should feel wanted, right? I shouldn’t be made to feel like crap.
