    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...

    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...
