Penny,

>>I really don't know what to do anymore. I really don't know why I always seem to stick my foot in my mouth. Why I speak without thinking first. Or why when I do think before speaking, I still say the wrong things. Why I'm always hurting people. Why I'm unable to maintain friendships.

Like the others, I haven't seen you say the wrong thing here. I have, but I haven't seen you do it. But even if you could show me a place where you said something unfeeling, or inappropriate, I'm sure that you apologized for it later - and so it is OK.

You have written about this roommate and things being a bit tense. I don't recall you writing about anybody else. Have you? Above you say that you are always hurting people, and unable to maintain friendships. Do you have examples of this? Please note that one example in 9th grade isn't going to convince me that you are awful. How many friendships have you LOST?

Don't base your whole self view on your interactions with one person. And why would the WORLD be better off without you because your roommate is mad? I won't be better off without you.
