    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...

    Vulnerable..

    I was at a friends house and we were both in bed sleeping later in the afternoon because we had had a long day. I kept drifting off to sleep, waking up with her dad standing by the door watching me sleep. I shut my eyes pretending i was asleep, every time i opened them there he...

    19 Year Old Man Who Feels Weird Being Vulnerable

    I have never had a girlfriend, never had sex, never kissed, never hugged or had any intimate experience with a woman ever. I feel trapped in a loop; I can't experience these things as I don't approch women as I've low self confidence, and as a result my self confidence drops and...

    I've seen a new level of my own vulnerability.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.
