    I Really Do Hate It.

    In many ways, the current relationship i'm in is the first time in my life that I have fully opened up to someone else. Growing up in a house with a bipolar/depressive mother, I learned to be hardened to my emotions and how others' emotions affected me. I have always felt more...

    I Can Not Stand The Feeling...

    of being vulnerable. Ever since I can remember, I hated showing that I was hurt. I have always NEVER faced the wall to sleep in my bed, I always face the open area. I know that chances are really slim for someone to kill me in my room, but I can never face the wall. I just can...

    In the past month or so I have pretty much come to terms with the fact that I have a catastrophic issue with VULNERABILITY. Ok so this story starts with a conversation I was having with a former manager about a month ago. We were talking because he was ready to leave our store...

    I can see why in Don Jon,

    there's this underlying theme of vulnerability. I can see why Jon turns to his addiction. He's afraid and unsatisfied with intimacy. He hides behind a facade, he is unable to be who he is at the broken parts. He's afraid of showing that side of himself to partners. He has to...
