    I can take a personality quiz seven times a week and get different answers every time. I empathize with the Hero and the Beggar, the Rapist and the Fool. I cannot say anything with certainty, not even that. Everything about me changes from minute to minute. In the seconds...

    Whenever I do those personality tests

    I'm afraid to get hurt.

    I am definitely a woman.

    One minute I'm happy and the next I can be downright depressed. I wish I had better control over my emotions. Thank goodness there's such thing as sleep, where I can just hit the reset button. Takes a special person to be able to put up with me sometimes. haha

    who isn't happy with themselves-- so I just have to let them go and do their thing. But damn if it doesn't suck investing your time in someone for it all to fizzle out.
