I Dont Let A Lot Of People Into My Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 276 People

    Troublesome...

    It can be difficult to let someone in. Even if it’s only part way. Once inside I let them see all the things I hide away from what most see as me. There’s so many thoughts, emotions, raw pain, that I worry once unleashed it will overwhelm and wash them away.

    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...
