    Almost A Recluse Cause Of It Too!

    My choice though. At least my choice to try my best at avoiding those kinds of situations AND confronting it when I do..... in one way or another!

    This seems to be getting worse also.

    Anything i can take in you meaning it badly towards me makes me cry :( i don't know if its because I'm embracing my Little side or what. I just want to either be able to handle more or to have someone who will be nice and comfort me when mean things are said.

    Icabob100 This jerk obviously doesn't know

    how to treat women. Makes negative accusations against women. Why would you say something like that to a woman? Get a clue a$$hole! If you've read my profile you would see that I'm into women; believe what you want. But making accusations of me being a man and a liar? What? No...

    Tell The Truth

    Their words are like rotten fruit covered in chocolate-sweet in the outside, but once bitten into, very bitter. They leave behind a sickening aftertaste, which threatens to bring up something else...What they say sounds beautiful, but I can feel their bitterness and hatred hidden...

    I wouldn't say easily though.

    It depends on who has the harsh words to say. If I don't care about the person or don't know them then what they have to say doesn't hurt me at all. But if someone I care for and care about their opinion comes and starts saying harsh things about me then it not only easily cuts...

    I Just Am

    It's not the words that are harsh, it's the one who says them that makes it so hurtful and rather painful . especially someone you love and trust! it won't hurt much if it comes from strangers or other people. I have my share of being told hurtful things mostly by my...

    I used to feel sad when he would use harsh

    words with me. Now I am numb to his words and they don't have the power to sting. He has hardened my heart. I miss the sting because at least it meant I was alive. I feel jaded now. l don't think my heart will ever thaw out. I fear I will always be so protective of myself that...
