    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...

    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...

    I'm Afraid . . I can't take take the pain when I get hurt. I can't. It takes a lot of courage to trust a guy. I refuse to let my heart take another "L" (loss).
