one of my closest friends just got engaged, I am nervous... I would love to be apart of her special day but I also know the girl is social and has like 30 friends that all want to be apart of her day. She's talked to many of us about wedding plans for over a year with us. I don't know why I have so much anxiety over who is going to be apart of her day.
This is my #MeToo story. I was sexually assaulted, but not nearly as bad as most people, so I feel bad sharing and have never really told anyone, not in detail. When I was in high school, I had a friend who was going through a bad breakup. He asked if I would kiss him just to get his mind off of her. He thought it might help him stop thinking of her. So I, wanting to help him, agreed to kiss him once. But a few days later he kissed me again, even though I told him I only wanted to do it the one time. He kissed me again a week or two after the second time, and he started using his tongue and groping my breasts. I wanted to hit him, to scream, to do anything to stop him, but I just couldn't. I couldn't move, couldn't speak. It was like I was frozen. And he took my silence to mean that it was okay. He even stuck his hand down my shirt to further fondle my breasts. He grabbed my hand and placed it on his pants so I could feel his erection. But he didn't go any farther because we were in my driveway, in his car, and my dad came outside to smoke. I went in my house acting like nothing happened because I felt ashamed and I blamed myself for not saying no. To this day, only my closest friends know it even happened, and no one knows the details. But I'm sharing it here. I feel the need to tell someone even though it's too late to do anything, even though it's not as bad as some stories. I want people to know that silence does not mean yes. SILENCE DOES NOT MEAN YES. Not saying no does not make something okay, and people need to hear that message. If someone does not consent and say yes/it's okay, THE ANSWER IS NO.
It hurts me so unbelievably much when I'm excluded from fun activities and then hear others talk about it. I mean, it's kind of logical and I guess everyone feels that way, but I think in my case, it's even worse. It doesn't only sting, it's not only like a slap in the face. It feels more like being hit by a truck and being left there on the road, people passing by and ignoring my dying body. Last night my boyfriend was on his friend's party - an 'open' party at a bar so it would've been well possible to invite me, but nobody did. I cryed myself to sleep and when I woke up, he sent me a text: "it's 6 am and I'm only home now, wow what a party." Boom. Truck. Just go and have fun without me, everybody. I know I'm lame and don't drink and that you all find me so weird that even my own boyfriend is glad when I'm not there. Let me die here on the street like roadkill.
A good friend of mine, made a watch store recently, and it would really help out if you could just take a look at it and give me some feedback on what you think about it? If you have a few minutes of spare time, please take a look: http://infinityhora.com/

I’m writing another confession about the go fund me thing ... I’m rewriting it because people have asked me where to donate .. so here’s the story my friend with cp is basically non verbal and she’s really hard to understand when she talks I need to raise over 2000 dollars to get her a speech device and an eye gaze for the device ( she can’t use her hands well) and id appericiate it so much if some of you decided to donate but I’m not going to force it down anyone’s throat anyways if you’d like to donate go to the website go fund me and type in a voice for Marybeth and you’ll see a girl in a wheel chair smiling
I hope the mental pain can just go off... I suddenly feel self inflicting pain is so much better
My friend is about to quit university to become a singer, which is her childhood dream. I don't know what to say to her. Should I say what I really think to possibly make her stop ruining her life, or should I support her because it's what she wants and a good friend should always be supportive?
So i met this guy because one of my online friends was talking with me saying that her classmate used some the Legend of Zelda pictures at School during his presentation. As i am a big fan of the franchise and Nintendo in general, i asked her if we could talk, you know, it's not that bad to find a friend that has your same interests. It went very well and we became good friends pretty quickly, we have a lot of things in common other than playing videogames. The thing is that now i have a crush on him and i don't know what to do, i'm afraid that if i keep silent, he will find someone else and i won't have that chance anymore.
