    Just Wondering...

    I would really like to know if I'll ever get further than the sex stage with someone. I'm really starting to feel undervalued. Surely I'm good enough for potential girlfriend-dom? **** it! I KNOW I am! I must be doing something terribly wrong. I think there are shed loads...

    Strength

    I can say I'm as strong as an ox, that I can take any words you throw at me, but it'd all be a lie. I can't help that I'm sensitive, I get hurt easily from what people say, but I can say I pull through it everytime. That's what real strength is, not saying your strong, but...

    so hard. He should not have said he loved me in the first place. Do not say you love someone and then not back it up with your actions. Saying you love someone in this way is a hollow gesture. A form of torture. And why me. Why send me this man when you know how sensitive I am...

    Yeah, it really doesn't seem like it.

    But I am really sensitive and I hate people easily for small things they do, and I push people away when they're too nice to me. I don't like it, I really don't, but it's to protect my heart and my soul. Both are so delicate but strong at the same time that I fear they will...
