I Dont Let A Lot Of People Into My Life

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 254 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...

    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.

    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...

    Ive been thru lots of hurt so its hard letting others in. I have to know you for a long time before I can trust you enough to let you get close to me as a friend.

    Due to jerks. Who claim to care. But merely care for their needs. Not any others.
