I Am Trying to Distance Myself

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 138 People

    I'm not as nice as I used to be,

    because I don't want to get used or walked over. I really don't trust everyone nowadays, because behind every fake smile there's a backstabber. I'm trying to distance myself from people because in the end, they're only going to leave. I guess I've changed because I realized that...

    But It Breaks My Heart

    I'm going to do by best to speak literally here, but I'm not very good at it. So here it goes: I help people, it's what I do. I'm a kind, caring person and I think about the people I help out before helping out myself. It is my biggest strength, yet it is my strongest...

    pushing people away felt easier.

    i dont have to rely on anyone, burden anyone with my quirks, flaws and problems. It also disables people from leaving me, abandoning me and turning their backs on me. and anyways, i deserve to be alone.
