My family... i am a disappointment to my family- and dont disagree they have TOLD me that... i am their disappointment. their problem child and they say i am lucky to even still be living with them bcuz i dont deserve it... i have lost one of my best friends over something ridiculous and stupid... i lost my 2 of the boys i have loved the most and i lost my virginity when i was ready becasue of peer pressure and i got ra.ped by my last boyfriend bcuz he was mad that i said no to having the s-word with him. ive lost my good grades.... i had never had a b in my life until 8th grade and then i failed all my classes except for orchestra at one time or another throughout the year... and now ive lost whats left of my heart to a boy who couldnt possibly love me back

You're not the disappointment. Your family's the disappointment. With everything that's happened to you I can't believe they haven't tried to help rather than being mean. How old were you when you lost your virginity, and to remind me exactly how old are you now? That last boyfriend of yours should go to jail. I hate him. I HATE him. As for failing your classes, that has nothing to do with how smart you are and everything to do with what's happened, so if your family helped maybe you wouldn't be their "problem child". Ugh. Family. There's no way he doesn't love you back. There's no way he couldn't.

I lost a friend this summer, in June. I hadn't seen him in a longg while but he was still a close friend, a former crush. That hadn't changed. So I know how you feel as far as that goes.

That.is.not.your.fault. It's his fault for deceiving you. It's his fault for being a jerk and committing illegal and immoral acts. Those were his decisions. It.is.HIS.fault. I understand that you are tired of the hurt but I believe that Josh (is it Josh? I hope so otherwise this is rather awkward) won't hurt you. Clearly, with everything he's done for you, he loves you for you. No matter what kind of love you think he feels. He loves you.

But look how far you have already come!! You've told Garrett, a mutual best friend. You've talked about it at length with me. You have way more courage than you give yourself credit for. Can you maybe do this for someone besides yourself? Can you maybe tell him for me? I've had a terrible day, week, even, and I just want to know that something has gone right with the world. If anything, tell him, "What would you say if I told you I'm in love with you?" At best, he will tell you, "I wouldn't say anything. I'd do this." And he'd kiss you. At worst, he'd say, "I'd tell you I love you like a sister, and I'll always be there for you." That is not a bad thing. It's like Jacob and Bella without Edward in the picture, without Edward even existing. The only major difference is, Jacob's fighting for his love. You need to fight. Fight for Josh, fight for YOURSELF, and fight for me. I know you can do it. I know you can. I know.

Wow... :)
Garrett said he would set a scenario for Josh and and see what he said and then tell me and if its not too painful like " I would never speak to her again" or "i would try to stay away from her" ill do it... but he has a gf right now anyways...

That's a good idea of Garrett's....awesome. Basically, it means you are going to tell him how you feel about him. So, yay :) He only is dating someone right now who is not you because in his mind you only love him like a brother and he thinks he can't get you, so he's trying to console himself!!! :)
