    He Taught Me

    My third boyfriend taught me too never let yourself go a 100%. He had my heart, the whole of it and things were going great and then he dumbed me, out of nowhere and I'll never forget how this felt, how much it truly hurt. Since then, I never gave myself away again. I wait...

    Feelings Are Scary

    And I don't always know how to deal with them so I shut down. Oftentimes, I don't even know HOW to talk about feelings. I want to, but sometimes I'm just ashamed of feeling certain things or guilt for having certain emotions. I know sometimes people just want to help when they...

    Because They Wouldn't Understand

    My emotions are too complex for people to really 'get it' the last person i opened up to ignored me. So why not hold them in?? It protects you from heartache and stupid people. When I broke down in front of my dad one time i was sent to therapy. THEY ARE JUST EMOTIONS WHY CANT...

    All The Time

    In fact, I only didn't hold them back when I was 11, lol. But after that, I just never confronted my own feelings. I kept them locked up inside while my head did all the thinking and went through all the turmoil. I still get headaches. Hey, at least they're better than heartaches...
