    Over Done

    I feel that when if comes to relationships that I over give. I'm the one who thinks about the little things... ex little notes/reminders, flowers, cards, etc. I'm the one that remembers to call, I'm the one that cries over it. Maybe it's that I'm the only one interested in making...

    Never Know
