    So Tender

    I feel a little silly sharing this story .. but here goes anyway. i was driving home yesterday and i was sitting at a stop light and i glanced at the large truck next to me. It was a truck of beautiful pink little piggies.  There were running around in the truck and i felt this...

    My Jewel

    I am amazed this group exists and glad I found it. :) I get my feelings hurt very easily but sometimes not in ways most people might deem a heartbreaker. I can't tell when people are joking off the Internet, and especially on the Internet. Sometimes I know to ask if someone's...

    My heart is very tender.

    I'm hurt easily and pressured easily. It doesn't matter if it's my fault or someone else. I usually take the blame for everything and when I'm blaming someone else, that's a sign I'm not capable of taking anymore. If I get defensive, it's about survival.

    Soft Heart...don't Laugh.

    I find it a little embarrassing but its so true about me. I can take a joke and laugh with the best but when you hit me in the heart the joke is over, my heart is soft and its not a pillow to put pins in sorry. It's sometimes a blessing cause that maybe just one of the best...

    Over Emotional

    I try to stay strong, and physically, I am very much so. Emotionally I am not, I am so easily hurt emotionally by the slightest of things. Especially when in a committed relationship, I tend to value my partners opinions to a T, wich usually leads to my feelings being hurt.

    Crushed!

    A Letter To You - I O

    Love is like a fragile leaf of fall, but it still holds an almost uncommon beauty; one which can never be found by purpose alone while hiking through life's forests. But one whose color and ultimate beauty is most pure and meaningful when discovered by accident while tending to...

    I know it's cool to look at because it's bigger and softer than most you see out there, but my heart is still fragile so I will ask that you not kick it or punch it as has been done aplenty in days gone by. In fact, can you please just set it back down, you're making me nervous...
