    I hate seeing people upset or hurt. I'm very sensitive to other people's feelings and I always want to make people happy. It can be a great personality trait, but also a flaw.

    I push away everyone even though I don't mean to. Maybe it's the commitment I'm scared of or I can't give them my trust. Either way it's left me depressed and alone .
