    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...

    Am I Over Sensitive?

    I always get hurt when people are trying to say negative stuffs against me even if it's not true because I always run out of place to at least explain or falsify those things. The reason why I am very much affected is because if my family knows or even my brother or sister would...
