I Am Scared of Disappointing People I Love

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 322 People

    But Equally Nervous Of That Being Played Against Me.

    I've been through a lot already with previous relationships. I have a hard time trusting sometimes. I worry that if I get too close to a person, there's the possibility that they might use this fear against Me and try to play Me. But I'm not dumb or blind. The very moment I first...

    I Don't Want To Loose Them

    I don't have a lot of people that I love in my life, I barely have anyone left. But I'm scared if I disappoint them or let them down, I will loose them. I don't want to loose them, because most of them are all I have keeping me alive.
