    The lesson I learned in childhood left scars

    that will always be there. I was never accepted as a child and was an outcast for children to tease. I had epileptic seizures from an accident. Now I have trouble with trust, acceptance and getting close. That means you shouldn't tease unless you walk in there shoes.

    I hope you can't even imagine the pain I went

    through. People say there's 3 types of abuse... Take em all, put em in a blender, mix it and out comes a big disgusting mush of pain. That everyone, That is what I ate for freaking breakfast for years. When it wasn't handed to me, I was scared of when it'd happen next. Pain...

    I just keep building these walls

    that no one can break through because I learned three words that pretty much sums up life and changed mine forever which are "Everything Is Temporary" so, what's the point of getting attached to things and people that will eventually fade away..

    My log, December 12, 2013: 11:30 PT I have

    come to the conclusion that the reason why I do not make relationships with anyone is because I am afraid of getting hurt. It is eating me alive, knowing that I want a relationship so bad and I can not make myself get close to anyone. I know that I should just go for it, but I...

    This is to be expected.

    All human beings have the desire to be loved, accepted. When that code of humanity has been breeched he heart takes the hit that becomes unbearable. It leave us wondering what the hell just happened? How did this happen? You get so blind sighted and bamboozled wondering if I'll...

    I will not let anyone in my life ever again.

    I promise myself not to believe in love again. I will not trust what people say to me. And I will never ever care for anyone. I get disgusted when I see men now. And I am so bitter that I can't look at happy couples or young parents with their kids. I literally can't stop crying...

    Tell Me More Lies By Me.

    I'd love to let you in, to help you in time of need. But it's becoming a trend, you always come to me. You beg and hope that I, will give in because I love you. But instead I watch you cry, as I smile above you. A cut is just a cut, and bruises don't bruise. So tell me more...

    I have had my heart broken before.

    And it is obviously not a fun feeling. Plus I don't know what to do with two friends of mine who have been hanging around me a lot lately.
