    Fine. I`ll Admit It.

    I still have feelings of unworthiness that follow me around like a shadow. I`ve had both sides of my family, and his family, and him, go back on their words. Turn around and two face me. Say they will then they wont. Denied me any real compassion and care when I had nothing else...

    I'm not really afraid of love, I'm afraid of the crashing out of love part. I'm afraid of the people I love judging me, and not being good enough. I've spent my whole life trying to reach the goals and standards I've set for myself. To watch some one tear that apart would break...

    How Selfish A Man..

    I never thought I could be this selfish. Or even this foolish, for that matter. Maybe I should cover a bit of background here first. I'm a bisexual teenager with a pretty decent life with lots of friends and a good family. I really have nothing to complain about. My life's...

    It's not that I don't want to fall in love

    and have those kinds of experiences. I am afraid of giving too much of myself to it and forgetting what has made it possible to fall in love in the first place. I'd like to keep falling in love over and over with someone. I fear the drama and betrayal and insecurity and...

    I'm afraid of falling in love and being completely vulnerable with someone. I'm really scared that someone could hurt me and break my heart. I have never been in love with anyone my entire life and I think it's so weird.

    Have we forgotten how to love?

    Sometimes I think it's so. Lives so full, too busy for matters of the heart. Lives too full of goals, expectations. And you spend all of your life trying to fill the shoes of that airbrushed model, that Barbie doll... You forget the purpose of other people. To be loved, to love...

    There's going to be a chance

    Fear of the unknown. It’s a vexing quality

    way. Believe me, that will always scare me more than violence and guns.

    I used to love so easily,

    and I hate it. Honestly, most of the people I loved didn't deserve it. When you let someone in and trust them, chances are they don't give a crap about you. All they care about is what they feel. They keep you around until the next best thing comes around. And I don't just mean...

    So I find that, whenever there is a girl that i'm getting to know and we're both interested in each other, I always tend to make myself so readily available. Anything that i'm doing pretty much comes to a stop the moment that person calls me. It feels like i'm practically killing...
