Do you really feel that you don't let people trample all over you? Good if true, but then why is your journal entitled "the story of an invisible girl"? You seem to spend a lot of time being quietly hurt, with big eyes and pain in your heart, or quietly miserable when someone consistently gets on your nerves (like that person at work).

I hope you're okay, dear.

it's very intersting that you mention the story of an invisible girl, because i was wondering almost the very same thing. this entry kept coming back to me throughout the day today, too, though i couldn't quite find the words to make a proper response. you hit the nail on the head with that question.

i wonder sometimes, if it's a sense of hurt or annoyance or a combination of both, when dealing with other people. i know there are times when i find things hurtful, but i know that oftentimes it's just something in another person's way or style or personality. it's not that they set out to hurt me, deliberately, so i find it's sometimes (most of the time) easier to not say anything rather than say something and have to explain *everything* about why i find some specific thing/action hurtful.

i too spend time with people that have hurt me in the past. with time, i've forgiven them, or myself for letting them hurt me. i never forget. friendships are funny, and sometimes when the good things that come out of them outweigh the crappy things that have happened, it's worth staying in touch and keeping up the friendship.

if that makes any sense at all...

It can be terribly hard. I've done both... forgiven and not, been hurt and caused the other person to be hurt. Maybe I don't have a right to say anything because I'm such an awful asshole sometimes, I think.
