I so long to meet you sis! I am so tired of people saying "I know it was you and your back, or you work downtown Lansing. As if I can find you among ten thousand people. When I never knew your name. As a child I thought you must have died. As a young adult I thought I had a double, that lived close by. Our mother died when we were teens. She thought she had identical twins. The doctor was going to talk to her some more about it but never did. My certificate does not say who attended my birth. Sh by florence

When I told you about my past you told me that you never wanted me to be hurt like that again. You told me that you were going to be there with me through it all. You told me that you thought I was an amazing girl that never deserved that. Then you hurt me. AND you weren't there for me... so does that make me not as amazing as you thought I was? by Maiden11976

Exactly. My friend whom had moved years ago was coming back to town for a visit, and I was extremely excited to see her again. I had arranged to meet up with her, and when I got there I was so super prepared to talk about so many things, but it didn't go as planned.... Over the years she had changed her appearance AND personality, and the conversation was short and awkward. Oh well. by maureen

Mr Collins to Lizzy: “I have no reason, I assure you,’’ said he, “to be dissatisfied with my reception. Mr. Darcy seemed much pleased with the attention. He answered me with the utmost civility, and even paid me the compliment of saying that he was so well convinced of Lady Catherine’s discernment as to be certain she could never bestow a favour unworthily. It was really a very handsome thought. Upon the whole, I am much pleased with him.” Pride & Prejudice - Jane Austin by rosalyn

I am just so excited! I just got back from Bible study and found out the person I met 4 months ago came to accept Jesus as her Savior.  I had one encounter with this person and never ran into her again.  She was really depressed.  I talked with her about Jesus (She wasn't a Christian).  I offered to take her to my church just so she could see what it was like.  She said she wouldn't know anybody but I said "you know me!" Just show love!! Also by rosanna

“Well,” he began in his gruff voice. “When we lived back at the castle. When we were all happy and lived a joyous life. Myself and her were younger of course and I was handsomer than what I look like now, but Estella…, she never lost her beauty. And when Araglas cam into our lives, we thought nothing could ever go wrong. I guess it was foolish to believe that in a world full of growing evil.” by dorothea

So tired of feeling inferior because of my weight.  People definitely treat you differently when you are not fat, even co-workers.  I have lost over 100 pounds three times, but have not ever been able to keep it off.  I don't know why so many people seem not to realize that I am the same person, regardless of my size.  I am 65 now and am tired of the struggle with my weight.  No more.  I am as I am. by Naghma

"I thought I'd seen them all; being in the business I'd seen so many models and actresses. But I'd never seen anyone with that tone of voice, that kindness, that real softness. If she saw a dead dog in the road, she'd cry. She was so supersensitive you had to watch your tone of voice all the time. Later I was to find out that she was schizoid - that she could be absolutely brilliant or absolutely kind, then, the total opposite." - Milton Greene by twila

Ilene Woods, the voice of Cinderella, died on July 1, 2010, at age 81, from causes related to Alzheimer’s disease.  Towards the end of her life, she did not recognize a lot of what was going on around her, and did not remember that she had been the voice of Cinderella, but her nurses found that she was most comforted by “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes,” so they played it for her as often as possible. by rosiete
