    I Can't Help It

    I'm not trying to change the world, just the little spot of it that I am borrowing until I die of natural causes with a smile on my face and peace in my heart.

    I get too attached to people.

    I don't hesitate to do what they want even if I don't really want to do it. I put their happiness over my own. When I need something from them, they don't care at all. My feelings mean nothing to them. They take advantage of me and I become heart broken EVERY SINGLE TIME. It's a...

    I've met & talked to what seems like millions

    of guys, and none of it has ever worked out or ended well. I always get too attached and move too quickly and come on too strong and scare them away before we've had a chance to even connect and it's awful. It's so very painful and I'm tired of living with a broken heart.

    let's forget about the past, let's live the present, and make a future, if we give up, if we let this die, we won't, I know I'm not perfect, but I can try, if we give up, you don't need to be alone, you don't need romance, you got me. I won't let our past get the best of us,
