I Dont Let A Lot Of People Into My Life

    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...
