    So Frightened...

    I have long lost count of how many relationships I could have had because of how frightened of rejection I am. I put absolutely everything I have, emotionally, into just asking someone for something as simple as a cup of coffee it is unbearable. To say nothing of how things are...

    Open

    After being closed so long, I finally opened myself up, only to get hurt. So now I'm left vulnerable without my usual armor, my soft underbelly exposed to be masacred by anyone who feels like it. I am defenseless, looking, groping helplessly, like a newborn kitten, to find...

    Sometimes You Have To Embrace Being Vulnerable.

    I want you to realise that I'm going to accept you no matter what. I want you to believe you're worthy of love and happiness. We are imperfect and we are hard wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging. You are enough. I want you to let yourself be vulnerable to...

    I Am Emotionally Vulnerable And Someone Exploited It!

    I have no idea how to express my feelings now. I am a vulnerable person. It's because I always feel like being loved by someone. It happened that someone I met in EP is not real. All I need is true love...why I can't find someone for that. I don't want to live like this.

    Still Healing

    I was told that I was still very vulnerable and not ready for any type of "relationship" after having been seperated for just over 6 months from my wife of 13 years. I knew that those words were true, that my emotional foundation had still been very weak, but never realized at...

    Being Vulnerable Is Worth The Risk And Adventure

    In spite of moments of fear, I allow myself to feel vulnerable often. I am afraid, and yet not, to open up my heart and expose who and what I am to others. Many have taken advantage of my vulnerabilities, and yet I continue to remain open to the world. I do struggle, though...

    Something that I've found about being overweight

    and trying to gain some self esteem is that it's nearly impossible. It's hard to love yourself when the world associates a number to who you are, you know? And yeah, you can reject that number, you can embrace it, etc but you can't deny it, because by western society's standards...

    I find myself in the same dark corner,

    fighting the same demons. I'm scared, because my wounds are open and they don't seem to heal. "I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut My weakness is that I care too much And our scars remind us that the past is real, I tear my heart open just to feel" -Papa Roach

    And Gullible

    I feel like someone just punched me and I can't breathe. I keep making the same mistake over and over again. What is it about me that allows me to do this and become hurt once more. I have said that I am finished with love, and yet I have such a need to be loved that I am...

    Vulnerable to Women

    Talking about wanting to die

    or to kill themselves. I've written a few entries on deviantart, but my sketchbooks, journals, random pieces of paper and whatever else I can write on is covered in suicide notes. Looking for a way to kill themselves, such as searching online or buying a gun. I'm saving up for...
