    Baby, Don't Hurt Me. No More.

    Hurt? It's something you experience in life. Something that drives you insane to the point you over analyze every portion of the problem until you have at least somewhat of an understanding. I've always been afraid of being hurt. My father was not in my life as much as he could...
