I'm chronically ill and sex is painful for me but my DH has taken it all in stride. I don't know how I got so lucky. 25 years and going strong!

I think I married the wrong brother. I would have been so much happier had I married brother in law instead of dh

Sometimes I imagine running into my ex and hugging him super hard and crying. It's been 15 years, but I'll always love him, it was just bad timing and it wasn't meant to be. I love my H and he's and amazing man, but I'll always love my ex too.

DS16 called me a pussy today, and DW yelled at him for using "pussy" as a derogatory word. She didn't have any problem with him being disrespectful and insulting to me - just with him using that word to do it.

Today’s the day I realize I drink too much. Today’s the last day. I won’t be this person. I don’t need this person. Neither does my son.

I opened up to him and told him the truth about the kind of woman I am and what I believe in. That investment is nothing if the outcome is null. Now he's not responding back. I wanted to push him away but now that I did, why does it hurt so much?

I met a man who is prob a good person. When he asked me if I was "worth the wait" as a joke, instantly I thought the answer was "no." I'm not worth the wait or effort. In a few days I'll ghost him like the others bc I'm a shit human being. I hate myself.

I would have fought for him. That’s how I am. He wouldn’t fight for me. That’s how he is. nearly a year later my heart is still shattered - bc that’s how I am, and he’s hiding behind booze and weed... Bc that’s how he is.

If you ask me nicely for help, I will almost always give it to you – even if it really puts me out to do it. If you DEMAND I help you, or cop an attitude, I’ll give you a giant “Fuck you!” – even if it would be no effort at all for me to help you.

H's bro & his wife have a horrible/dysfunctional marriage. SIL calls me regularly to complain about it, & deep down it makes me happy because I have a major crush on my BIL. I love my H & would never act on it, but I can't help being glad they're unhappy.

I said I wouldn’t but I want to tell his wife how we have been together off and on for 3 years. He said he loved me, I am his soulmate, his split-apart, he loved me in so many ways. I know now that he lied to me but I want her to know who he really is.

When my SIL complains to me that she can't afford something and I tell her to put it on a credit card, it isn't because I'm privileged. It's my way of trying to tell her to STFU about money. I don't care if or how she pays for some stupid thing.

At what point are friends people who take you for granted, and don’t communicate, versus “life is busy”? Can they really be too damn busy to send a ‘hello’ or ‘how are you’, via text?

When you run into someone you used to know and they cant figure out who you are.

I daydream about being single again. So why is it when my husband loses his shit and says he's done, I talk him out of it?! Logistics of sharing children and the nightmare of dealing with the disapproval of my parents and church family. That's why.

I’m going to bed early not because I’m tired but so that I can lie in bed and think about when he loved me and all the nice things he used to do.

Even though I can’t stand him, it still stings that my dad doesn’t make much effort to see my kids, who adore him.

SIL is a nervous host and seems to counting the minutes until guests go home. I try to help and somehow that makes her more anxious. Hate being there and feeling like an unwanted burden but look like a bitch if I refuse to stay there for the holidays. ugh

I feel like an f-ing idiot. For many years I thought he was sincerely the sweetest boy in the world & it was a big mistake to let him get away. No. He's a covert, mean jerk ass. Wonder if it was something my gut knew all along. I was so wrong about him.

My friend loves old movies w/ stars like Audrey Hepburn. I can't stand that weird affect they all have to their speech. It's like this fake "actor" accent they all used, IDK why. Does it bug anyone else? I think it's un-listenable!

After 12 years we finally decided to get married. SO told me to pick any wedding set I want (with a budget), the problem is I've found two that I absolutely love. Decided I'll order them both and hope he doesn't notice that I switch between them.

H wanders around the house muttering under his breath. It INFURIATES me, but I ignore it. If something's bothering you, communicate like an adult or STFU.

He said he wouldn't pressure me into sex or anything sexually. That lasted only 3 days. Can't believe I trusted another man. Again. Lmao. When will I fucking learn that everything that comes out of their mouth is nothing but lies.
