I Dont Let A Lot Of People Into My Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 268 People

    i feel I can get myself together just

    when I am on my own. :( Letting people in my life often drags me down...and being a loner drags me down itself. I cant find the right balance. I either lose myself and get faceless in someone else , or manage to keep this delusional level of happiness, that sometimes backfires...

    Let's Avoid The Crap

    You'll hurt me or I'll hurt you (which will hurt me by adding to my shame). Let's just enjoy one another's company for a short while and then just keep passing by. I'm sick of hurting, is all.

    Always Alone

    I have always had trouble getting to know people, much less letting anyone into my life. I don't know why, but I can't seem to let my guard down around people that I don't know well. Most people won't bother to stick around as long as it takes for me to get to know them. I have...

    Sometimes you just get "that feeling" about some people, and though they may not fall in love with you, you can still trust them.
