    Everything Effects Me

    It Happens

    If I'm already down then of course it's easier to take me down faster. I think we all fall harder, get hurt easier and have our feelings hurt easier when we are already vulnerable. Yes, I get my feelings hurt easily at times but not always...

    I Get Hurt Very Easily

    I hate that and I know why it happens. I truly believe in people very easily. And then I get disappointed very quickly. And it hurts. Why I trust anyone I don't know so fast?! Am I just a stupid lemur? I know people are not always what we think they are. I'm innocent. That's my...

    Feelings Hurt...

    This ties in with the thinking too much problem.  I read too much into sh** that I shouldn't and sum it up in my mind to something a little off the reality.  Many of us do.  I remember once my parents were acting funny..  and I dreaded their trip home because...

    I've resisted allowing anyone to become close

    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...

    I am a person who sees the good in others, I forgive, forget, and reopen my heart, I know that in every being there is a thresh-hold separating hatred and love, but I usually end up on the side of hatred, I get dissapointed, but in life you could either put yourself out there, or...

    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.
