    The Other Person

    Sometimes I wish I was one of those people who can control their feelings really well. I have always been that "other" person. The one who cares too much, or too fast, or too easily. I tell myself everytime that I am going to be better the next time, keep my feelings in check...

    I get hurt a lot by my friends because I always expect them to care as much as I care for them but they're not. Are my expectations too high or are they just fake friends ?

    A friend told me not to be so nice to others. He said nice guys always finish last. It doesn't feel good to be mean to others but it doesn't feel good to be trampled over either.
