    A Letter To The Man I Love.

    No one ever said that life would be easy. And to be honest, it isn't. Everything in my life has been a struggle. Some people care, some people don't. And sometimes, it is the ones that you want to care the most that don't. I have had my ups and had my downs, more downs that I...

    Wont Do That

    I never thought of hurting someone who really cares about me.... i would rather hurt my self than to hurt them. I know we can't control some situations to happen sometimes but i will try my best to get things back in normal status.

    Mostly My Husband

    People tend to think of someone they love as a perfect being, at least in my experience.  I have a very realistic view of life and humanity.  I know everyone doesn't live up to their own morals and ideals all of the time.  I tend to love people that at least...

    And Always Will

    I hide who I am because I know that it would cause pain and humiliation for those around me.  I care too much for those that I hold near and dear to my heart and have forsaken who and what I am just to keep them safe.  I have learned over the years to accept myself and...

    I've Had a Nasty Habit of Doing This...

    By suicide attempts, Cheating, Leaving... none of these things I am proud of.  The pain I've felt after knowing I've hurt someone who is or once was dear to me is tremendous.  I've never meant to hurt people.  Things always seem to just sort of happen.  With...

    A Very Real Fear That Is Realised

    In fear of hurting those I love, I often withdraw from them, leaving them confused and more hurt.  Yet in my head, I am saving them from negativety and myself.  Yet I am now realising that very much this is not the best course of action and departing from it. ...

    I am always afraid of hurting those

    who I care about, and those who care about me. I am always afraid that I am going to do, or say something that will hurt them, that is why I hold my tongue a lot, I don't always trust myself to do or say the right thing. The last thing I want to do, is hurt someone, especially...

    I Dont Want You to Hurt...

    But I can't stop how you feel, and i can't make myself feel something I don't. Sometimes i care about people who care about me, and I unintentionally hurt them. How can I do something so wrong sometimes. It's like I forget to think straight, but at the same time it was...

    I Really Am...

    I really am afraid of hurting those who care about me. I am afraid that I might do something to hurt them, or to hurt me, and it ends up hurting them. I am so scared of hurting people who care about me, that I make it impossible for someone to get close to me, and care about me...

    The Prodigy

    So many people I come across see something in me. It's so consistant that I'm beginning to think no one sees anything at all, but rather just wants to put their bid in just incase one of my silly pointless crusades actually goes somewhere. But that's not the point. The point of...

    ...or Those I Care About.

    There are certain situations that can't be helped for emotional reasons. Not to mention the fact that the future is uncertain and there should be plenty of opportunities to do the right thing. Being young, I worry about jumping into the wrong decisions. But that's just my brain...

    I Think to a Degree Everyon...

    I think to a degree everyone is.  I think that people who take chance though find out that they don't always cause pain in those who care about them and that they shouldn't let the fear run thier lives.

    It'd Be Bad

    I can do and say some stupid and ridiculous things sometimes, and I'm afraid one day, I will go too far with my somewhat reckless and carefree behavior and either end up dead or losing the people I love and admire, losing their respect for me.  Yeah, argue the human factor...
