    My Choice To Be Independent

    I have turned into a totally independent person. I push people away from me. I want to do everything myself and not let others into my life even though I need them. I wasnt always independent. I forced myself to be. Now that im married. life is even harder.

    From a young age, I had no choice

    but to be. I still fear loneliness and rejection. As far as I've come, that may always be a apart of me, in my make-up somehow.
