    It's All An Act, Isn't It?

    Everyone thinks I'm the strong one, able to handle anything.. I guess I can.. and I can't... i don't share when I can't, i deal with it with a smile on my face, not letting anyone know that anything can get to me.. but it does. Outwardly I guess i do put on a strong front.. but...

    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...

    Totally Self Inflicted

    I do it to myself. I let throwaway comments hurt me and total idiots who really don't have any grounds to criticise me still make me cry.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
