    Not Anymore, Anyways

    I have let it happen most of my life. My wife has done it for 4 years, and when I quit being her doormat, she left me. That tells you just how serious I am about this.

    People who I let get close to me either hurt me, or I hurt them. It's all I've known. Any good, I'm afraid of because it's abnormal for me.

    Many people view me as snobby, when in fact I am only being selective. I've been burned too many times to reach into the oven again without proper protection (metaphorically).
