    Fallen.

    It feels like someone pulled the rug from under my feet when i wasn't even looking and let me fall, broken, to the ground...and everyone stood watching....laughing...not laughing because of the fall...but because i was so naive to expect anything different.....bf.

    You Could Easily Hurt Me And You Know It

    With you, my guard is almost completely down. I place my fears, my dark secrets, and my dreams with you, and I share everything. I am almost completely open to you. I listen and obey you, even when I have other plans. I am allowing you to mold and shape me into what you want. I...

    Today a 'friend' read through a private letter

    and denied it. The letter contains some very personal feelings (my ex was abusive and I left him this letter when I managed to get away) The things in the letter are things I don't talk or think about anymore and I'm embarrassed and angry about the whole thing.

    19 Year Old Man Who Feels Weird Being Vulnerable

    Especially After This Casey Anthony Trial

    If someone chooses to murder me, they now know that our justice system doesn't protect the victims. If that person has the know-how and opportunity to hide their tracks with any half-assed effort, my murderer can (and probably will) go free, under our laws. I feel like, I need to...

    I'm Afraid

    My vulnerabilities are making me feel weak right now. The simplest things could break me. I feel a little bit outside of my body, like I don't fit anywhere. I am uneasy, skeptical and afraid. I don't want to let anyone get too close because I don't want them to know. I don...

    I feel weak and exposed, and it shows.

    I use the excuse that talking never helps anyway, but the real reason is talking makes me feel vulnerable. If someone knows what hurt you, they know how to hurt you.
