    with me, relationship, friendship, and familial wise because I fear being hurt. The more time I spend around people the closer they become, my flaws become visible, and their simplest comments can cut deep. So I tend to distance myself from people. I don't want anyone to know me...

    Sadly wearing my heart on my sleeve this

    happens to me a lot. There are times I wished I could change that about myself but I don't regret any of it. Hurt helps us to grow and learn even if in that moment we can only see the bad.

    Feel Bad

    I think I am just too out there. My family always seems to be able to know the best times to make me feel bad. It is usually when I need their help the most. I just try not to tell them things anymore.

    My Feelings Were Hurt

    Sometime last year, I met up with someone who wanted to get together.  I told her something and she hurt my feelings. I haven't told her.  For her it must've been a small issue cause it doesn't involve her but to me it is a great deal.  People can be so ignorant sometimes.
