I Believe People Can Surprise You Sometimes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 307 People

    It's so rare to find people

    that are actually willing to really show you who they are. I've always been afraid to be open with people because of the bare-ness and vulnerability that goes along with it. I've always wondered about how much I have to give, and whether it would be enough for the people around...
