    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 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.
