    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...

    Why does it have to be

    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...

    For the wounded, the damaged, the broken. There is a dignity and a wisdom that only those who have gone through intense pain, physical or emotional, know.
