What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it is supposed to be.
Oh boy. today is like the first good day I've had in a while. it's pretty nice
The worst things in life come free to us.
So glad this place brings NO fucking support. Thanks assholes.
ElociNWell, fuck... As a new member myself I'm sorry that you haven't gotten what you needed from here, but there are thousands of members as well as thousands of posts. Things get lost, stuff gets overlooked. It happens. No one's fault. Perhaps start at the introduction to get a feel for the community and letting everyone know you're here rather than jumping in with certain expectations would bring more favorable results.

ElociNWhichever you choose to do, it's probably better than calling the community a bunch of "assholes" when wanting support from said "assholes." Not trying to take a shot at you, but people feel less inclined to help when being referred to as such.

I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.
No matter his motivations, his reasons, his delusions. Those things don't change his actions for a second. His side of the story isn't as important as yours. No matter what he said or did to convince you, your original answer was no. He should have known better. It was his actions not yours. Your actions would have been inactions had he not pushed you. You never would have wanted to do what he did with you on your own. So who made it happen then? YOU? NO! IT WAS HIM! That'...
i am sorry.
ActivistAllyAw, i am sure you have nothing to be sorry about. What's going on?

Now the story's played out like this, Just like a paperback novel, Let's rewrite an ending that fits, Instead of a Hollywood horror...
I think I may know what path in my life I can take now!! I just gotta make it happen! :)
Pacing around my apartment talking out my story the way I would tell it to the court. It sounds okay to me.
To talk or not to talk, that is the question. :/ Sometime today I expect to be getting an e-mail back from an advocate in my area. I have some questions about the details of the law for landlords, and am proceeding to make the choice for myself for the right reasons on whether or not to take him to court. I doubt I'll take him that far, I just need to, I think, make that choice on my own, not because I'm afraid of him.
Uggg, Dear God Almighty, what a mess
Today I e-mailed the police department, asking anonymous questions about actions that could be taken in a situation like mine. I did this following a nightmare I had last night. It's a bit of an emotional day for me with all of this. It was so empowering to e-mail the police about it all, and at the same time, scary.
