    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...

    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 💔

    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...

    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...
