    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'm pretty sure that I care too much. I get invested in people and I get disappointed. I set myself up for it.

    It's just a natural instinct for me to care so much for people or way too soon. I hate being the one trying to much and other person seems as if they don't care at all..
