    Very Frustrating

    I find when I love someone I put my entire being into making them happy. Trying to please them, giving my all for them. Wanting to be near them all the time, wanting to drink them up. Becoming committed and devoted to them. I am afraid of commitment for this reason. Being needy...

    Terrorfied

    Please Don't Go

    I don't wanna scare people away by telling them what I need. Because I need a lot, and I know I ask for a lot, but usually it's only love. I just don't want to want someone and need someone so bad that I can't help my desires, my needs. That it'll all boil over the pot and I wont...

    Fear Pushing Her Away

    I am the type of person that feels no one could like me or want to be with me. When someone does show attention to me, I like to keep hearing that person say things that reassure me. I have been told that I am too needy so I am always careful. The problem lies with being too...

    Feel Too Vulnerable And Exposed To Show I'm Needy

    I think I hide behind a mask of self confidence to keep from showing that deep down, I am really needy.  I guess my fear is that if I do show this side of me- that people will turn away from me. Sometimes it feels like I am suppose to be strong and support everyone around me...
