I don't have a story to relate - I just want you to know there are many, many males out here who are ashamed by what others of their gender do to women. What pleasure could someone gain from subjecting another person to unspeakable terror, physical and mental pain? I hope one day your mental hurt will be healed by a loving gentle soul.

25 days ago, 11/15/16, my daughter and her children, my only biological grands, were killed in an accident by someone under the influence of drugs. I'll never be the same again. Please pray for her husband and our families.

So true, Breanna. I have two brothers and they are my friends and strong connection to life. One is my older brother and one is my baby brother. They are both good, good men. We have each other's hearts. I helped raise my baby brother and my older brother always looked after me. We have shared a lot in our lives, and yes, don't ever take for granted a true faithful brother. They're the best!!

Yes, the description is perfect. It makes me remember when I would ride my horse, Golden Girl. The sound of horse hooves is my favorite sound to listen to, and if you get nothing else from riding you can surrender to the magical sound of the clickety clack of the horses' feet. Well said, Brittany.

I laughed at this poem. I have felt the same way at times. I live in the country, and there is nothing more peaceful than listening to God's natural sounds of nature, but it’s just like any other thing...too much of one thing can be annoying sometimes, and that's the natural nature of us. Good job!

Hi Anamika!
I'm really sorry that you have to go through the same thing that I've had to struggle with. You're right! It can be very awkward to tell your parents about your depression! The best advice that I can give you is to tell your parents or somebody you trust exactly what is going on. I know that it's a LOT easier said than done, but it's worth it in the end. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-TALK [8255]. I know what it feels like to want to commit suicide. It is the worst feeling possible, but from my experience just discussing what is going with someone helps so much. Please find someone to talk to. You still have so much life to live. Choosing to live was the hardest thing I've ever done, but every day I am glad that I chose life over suicide.

My dad had epilepsy, and i remember waking up in the middle of the night to hear him crying because of his seizures, because he had accidentally hurt one of us. As a kid I was always having to call the ambulance or grandparents or just whoever could help. He never complained, but when someone looked in his eyes you could tell he was in pain. I know it hurts but just keep fighting. You can do it.

This is so similar to how I feel. I am falling deep for someone, but I have been hurt so much that I am scared to death. Every relationship I have been in has hurt, my first and second cheated on me and my third just destroyed me. Now I am with my fourth who is so sweet, but I'm scared. People don't realize that when you get hurt it's like a knife cutting so deep that the wound is never fully healed and when it comes to love it's even worse because you trust them not to hurt you and it's just sad.

My story is of the love of my life who not only helped me realize that I'm not what everybody thinks I am but that I do have a purpose and meaning for my life. He has become my light guiding me in the right direction. Before I met him I was just following the crowd doing what they do, and now I am my own person. I have my own morals and beliefs. Sometimes love is fake, but when you both better each other, it is love and not just self interest.
