    I avoid a lot of things in life (such

    Currently my boyfriend is dealing with some

    family stuff, and I really want to be there for him, I just don't always know how. I so often feel like my emotions make me vulnerable. Thus I have learned to keep them in check, and never let anyone know what I am feeling. I have done this for so long that now that I...

    Such a bad night with the hubby.
