    First Time

    As human beings we're capable of doing a lot of things in this world, this ranges from things we enjoy and things we may even hate. But sometimes you go through life feeling empty because you don't want to get hurt by others. Not letting others get close to me is one of the best...

    Nothing.....

    I just don't feel love anymore. Like the emotion was expelled from my body. I don't understand it. I feel compassion, but not love. It's all gone........

    It All Blurs Together For Me.

    In my life, I have never felt that anyone loved me unconditionally. My parents did love me, but I know I disappointed them in lots of ways.  Friends only come around when they need something or want to vent because I will listen; even if my own life is falling...

    I think it's a defense mechanism sometimes.

    I know that the more you allow yourself to love someone, the better the return. In most cases. If you hold back then you don't get hurt or let down. Now the love for my kids is something else entirely.

    Not Bothered

    I can like people, love, no. I do not desire to be loved either, just liked. It's not a problem for me, I never was able to connect to people. It doesn't bother me, I've always been this way. I've never suffered trauma or abuse, I was born this way. It's just my thing.. it's not...

    I don't know why but I just can't.

    I can tell when people love me but I can't love them back, I just don't feel it no matter how hard I try. It's like I'm disconnected from everyone, it's an annoying feeling at times and frustrating.
