    But I sure did! I hung out with my old BFF from

    high school and it turned sexual. We always said we wouldn't because of our friendship. We had a fun time. And it was the first time I had since my affair. But little did I know he would change after that and stop talking to me and saying he needs to get his head cleared. So...

    I feel like it's childish and immature of me to be this afraid of getting hurt again. I know how I act has confused or possibly even hurt others. They have done nothing wrong nor have they hurt me in any way. I know it isn't fair to them but I have no idea how to get past it...

    I got hurt in my first relationship

    so I did not want to get hurt again. Instead I accidentally hurt someone else. I never meant for it to happen as I know how hard and painful it is to be cheated on but whatever happened happened and I have to let guilt run it's course

    I've been hurt so many times in my life.

    I lost all of my friends due to them not thinking I was worth there time. I just want to be happy. I don't want to have to battle depression anymore. Survivor~

    I think everybody would agree

    that we don't want to be hurt. No one wants to be hurt. But reality isn't like that, no matter what, we will experience it. All you have to do is to look at the bright side of it. As the song goes "you made me stronger by breaking my heart" so cheer up. Just learn from the...

    Getting hurt is an inevitability,

    just be smarter about it: Don't form an attachment to anyone if you can help it, i.e listening to problems, giving them a shoulder to lean on, trying to solve whatever is going on with them. Just. Don't. Take it from your old pal, they will use you when they're done and let you...

    It's what I've told everyone. When I start talking to someone I tell them at some point, everyone leaves me. They say I'll never leave you. And that is bullshit. I used to believe people. Then I got hurt over and over and now the sick and awful thought that goes through my mind...

    I've suffered before putting a lot of

    expectation on others. But now, I've learned to leave all that; I guess the experience had made me alter NY character. I've also started to believe that happiness comes from within and not without.

    Always said i wouldnt let myself get hurt.

    I guess we have no control over these things. The heart wants what it wants and then ya have those that will trample all over it and act as if they did nothing. Part of life i guess what dont kill you makes your stronger right?

    I don't want to hurt him anymore either.

    How do I stop this cycle of, "I'm sorry" "We can't do this anymore" and then, "I missed you" "I love you" and "I don't want to say goodbye" I hurt all the time and I can only imagine what it does to him. I love him. Why do I let my actions hurt him?
