I Don't Open Up to People

If you are your only friend by choice. If you have never found any one that you can completely rely on. If you've been betrayed by everyone you tried to rely on in one way or another, you're home. 139 People

    Careful

    When I was in high school, I knew a boy who I'll call Jonathan. We were friends, but he was just too much for me. He called constantly, and he talked for hours about wrestling. Every day he called to hang out, and it was just too much. I'm the kind of person who needs time...

    Then what?

    I don't have any brothers or sisters, and there are no other teenagers in my family except two who are far-related. So, I've always came to myself for support, and I've developped this part of me that I can always rely on. My dad is my best friend, except that he sometimes pushes...

    What's the point of opening up to people?

    That just shows them how vulnerable you can become, allowing them to be able to take advantage of you and turn on you. If I DO open up to you, you must be pretty damn special.

    Don't Know Why

    I have always had trouble opening up to people. I try but it just comes out as a joke or I lash out at people. I just can't help but think that if I tell them then they will tell everyone else. But who cares, it's not like I trust anyone.

    When I open up, i usually ends up being to the

    right person. I just don't like opening up to someone that has no social skills and doesn't know how to reciprocate what they are feeling or what is being told to them

    Why Do I Do This?

    I feel that I speak very simply. I say things like, I’m cold. I’m bored. I’m happy. I’m sad. I’ve leaving work now. Have a nice day. I’m going to take a shower. I’m tired. Goodnight. And yet I’m so complex inside. And I used to offer this to people. These complex...

    I just can't. While I am naturally a loner,

    there are times when I feel very lonely and needing someone to talk to. But I just can't. Maybe because I don't know if they will keep it to themselves. I take privacy as a very serious matter, and you never know whom to trust afterall. Or maybe because I'm afraid of being...
