    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.

    Independance

    Tears are best dried by your own hand, for if done by the hand of another, you loose your sense of pride,self-worth, and independence. You must never let the people, who have caused the pain to leak from your eyes, to see it shown.
