    MIXED Feelings...

    There are times when I have mixed feelings when I discover that I will be happiest staying. On some level, it means recommitting to a relationship that is too good to leave under the conditions, but I'm also afraid of settling for sharing him, which is clearly unsatisfactory...

    Everyday

    I'm scared.. I need reassurance every day! I'm always afraid that either I'll fall out of love.. or someone will take their love away from me. Even after hearing someone say it.. It's hard for me to believe that they will always feel that way, or that I'll always feel that way. I...

    What's there to be scared of?

    I lost love. It only cleaved my heart and soul in two, and left me nothing but a husk of a person... no joy, no happiness, no reason to exist. Yea, nothing to be scared of there (!).

    Losing My Mind, Lost In Love.

    I am so scared of losing any kind of love I get. My family doesn't really get along and most definately never shows love. Their biggest idea of "love" is screaming and yelling until you eventually change all the things they want you to. Me and my boyfriend have been...

    Scared

    of him leaving me either for someone else or just because he's sick of being with me. It scares the heck out of me but I can't help it. Plus sometimes, I get paranoid that there's someone else already.
