    Sometimes I Feel Like I Can't Do This Anymore...

    I feel so flawed as a person. I am shy, sensitive and emotional. I am guarded and hard to get close to at times. Hurt me and I will go into myself. I am such a guarded person when someone hurts me. However, sometimes I worry that I over react and that my perceptions on things are...

    Run

    No, I can't always fight through it. So I leave. Does that make me a quitter? A coward? Yes. I don't like having to admit it, but sometimes I just can't handle a situation. I leave, even though the problem will find me again. Maybe by that time, I will be a stronger person...
