    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...

    Afraid

    I'm afraid of starting a relationship and getting hurt. I haven't had a relationship before, so I wouldn't really know what to do.

    I'm Terrified...

     It's not just that I'm afraid of getting hurt, but I'm afraid I'll hurt the other person. I'm afraid I won't be able to give them what they want from me.  I'm afraid of giving someone that much power over me, the power that come from knowing me so well. Knowing my...

    Am I Over Sensitive?

    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 ๐Ÿ’”
