I Am Afraid of Getting Hurt

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 297 People

    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...

    Bad Luck

    Everyone gets lucky good or bad, if there was no bad luck I would have no luck at all- love that quote but it's so true! Sorry back to the story now. The same goes for me and relationships, I had never been that lucky in anything but relationships I thought I could handle. In...

    It just dawned on me today

    that I've lost most if not all my niceness. I used to be very nice, possibly the nicest person you could ever meet and then today I realized I'm not nice anymore. Now that I'm thinking about things I realized I've been seeing parts of my niceness slip away. And in those...

    I'm so tired of getting hurt in relationships.

    It's like in the beginning I'm good enough to be with the person but then all of a sudden bam I'm not good enough or worthy of being with them. I don't understand what's wrong with me or what I'm doing wrong. I just want a guy to love me for me. Maybe he doesn't exist 💔
