    I always wonder if anxious people are capable

    of of truly loving people without any sort of fear. I over analyze every moment, every interaction. Unfortunately, I'm right most of the time and people do tend to leave once they have no use for you. Or when they simply forget you. Still, I wonder if anxious people like...

    Vulnerable to Women

    The subject pretty much explains what I want to say.  Throughout my life I fall for a girl about every 6 months or so and I fall hard.  Sometimes the feelings are returned, most of the time however I overthink the situation and manage to screw it up somehow.  The...

    Loving and being loved in return can be

    similar, but often are so SEPARATE. So intertwined and yet so different from one another, no?

    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

    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...

    I've made mistakes. My deepest regrets go to

    James my first boyfriend who I abandoned. And Alvin who I might as well have abandoned. I stung them both so badly. I am so remorseful.

    He says my vulnerability is what makes his

    desire & need for control stronger, he knows I need it and I know he needs it too. We are perfect for each other!

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I don't know if I'm capable of fully trusting

    anyone. I wear my heart on my sleeve and find myself always so exposed and torn apart. And yet, I don't expect anyone to stick around. There's always a likelihood they could hurt me. People I've trusted and loved have been in and out of my life. I think the expectation that...

    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...

    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...

    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 almost think that sometimes people

    intentionally play with my heart just to spite me. They'll treat me so well and be so supportive only to later ignore me. The insecurities creep out after that. And the rest is history.

    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.
