    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...

    Not generally everyone

    but I'm afraid of it. I'm afraid of people disappointing me as I am afraid of disappointing them. I'm prideful. I take a lot of pride in the work I do and how i approach others. I'm a people pleaser to an extent. I'm happy just doing my absolute best to leave people in a good...
