    I can be blunt and make decisions

    that appear cutthroat. But I care, I care a lot.

    I Don't Know Why

    I always act like I'm this cold hearted ***** who doesn't care about anyone or anything. I act like love dosen't exist because I'm too afraid to even look for it. Most of my friends think I'm this clinical mad person. And yes I am those things to an extent. But there is this...

    I am really not a *****.

    I have feelings and emotions. I would never intentionally hurt a person. Nor am I left unmoved when someone is in pain. Stop judging and acting like you know who a random internet stranger actually is deep down. Because we are just that, strangers.

    I act tough and emotionless wen deep down it's

    just a mask to cover up my sadness and grieve but sometimes I wish the mask became permanent, that I actually was emotionless. And I know I'm not the only one that's feels like this, or am I ?

    Love Is What I Got Baby

    Yes it's true I come off as cold hearted but let me say that I'm far from that, if anything I have a lot of love and compassion for myself and for others. But I come first of course, the thing is that I just don't show it that well to you. But believe me when I say I have a whole...

    A Learned Behavior

    I have never wished to come off as cold or uncaring. I learned to hide my emotions when I was young. Hiding my emotions doesn't mean that I don't have them.I have been told that I come off as a angry, cold, and heartless. However, these things were said by people that spent very...

    Cold

    I don't know why, but I've always been the mature, serious type. Even my mom says when I was like 5 I was pretty serious and quiet. I try not to, but most people see this as being cold and unfriendly. But I only act that way towards people I don't like or don't know. It's hard...

    Yeah, I come across as this cold-hearted,

    angry, mean girl at first, but once you get to know me, I'm quite the opposite. I've just been hurt in the past, so I put up walls. I actually seem to act very guarded and distant around people I don't like and don't know very well. They seem to get the wrong impression. They...

    I've been called a cold hearted ***** before.

    I can be, but I got a lot of love for the right people.

    worst of all is realising that the one you still love has walked away because they no longer love you enough to return the second chance you once gave them.
