    In the past I have been betrayed a lot

    or people deliberately tried to hurt me. And because of that I have very little trust in people now. I have a serious problem with trusting people. I find it very hard to let people into my life. And I even find it hard to love again. I'm currently liking someone but I don't...

    She will always be someone special in your life

    :'( I'm so done with all this. I wonder if you will tell me you skyped or is it a secret? You should have asked how I would feel if you do... Because the last time you skyped, almost 3 years ago, my life deflated like a hot air balloon by the things you both said.. I'm...

    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.

    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...

    This is to be expected.

    I've been hurt so many times I've gotten to the

    point of letting it happen. All of my boyfriends and one fiancé had cheated because I wouldn't give them sex and I recently just lost my virginity Saturday to someone I really love but I'm afraid he'll leave me.

    Is The Second Love Ever As Good As The First?

    How Healing Works

    Healing works through a kind of detox: things have got to come up in order to be released. That is true of our personal issues, and also our collective issues. We can't just push the darkness down, pour pink paint over it and then pretend it's not there. We have to look at it...

    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.
