I Am Able to Love, Despite Everything

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 209 People

    In Fact...

    Sometimes I feel as though I love too much. I forgive too quickly, and I love too intensely. I only set myself up to be hurt, time and time again. It's not that I never learn; I'm fully aware that by letting another person in, I'll probably end up hurt once again. But I usually...
