    I believe this is the major reasoning

    for all that holds me back from many things in my life. I allow myself to only get so close. I have deep rooted fears of being hurt again. Not just hurt feelings because of mundane things but the kind of hurt from betrayal. There is only so much one person can take and sadly I...

    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?

    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'M Tired Of Giving My Heart

    It sucks that I have a good heart. I've been alone for a while cuz I was making bad choices, and also I was getting tired of bullshit. So when I recently got involved, I gave it everything I had...and I got hurt, badly. I'm too old for this. When you're 23 it's easy to rebound...

    No one gives a crap about me,

    my family support me on certain topics. If they don't agree they say what they want to. I've also been hurt so many times by everyone and I'm tired of it.

    it's been hard to let people get close to me.

    I feel like if people get too close than they'll realize truly how ****** up I am and then I'll lose them and have no one once again. I don't know why I'm so scared, but I'm trying to get over it

    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...

    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 Really Don't....

    I really don't want to get hurt again. I honestly, don't think I can take getting hurt again. So for now, I will be distancing myself, and not putting all my heart out there, because that is the only way I feel like I can protect myself from getting hurt again.

    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...
