    I Always Get So Hurt And Then Get Angry With Myself....

    I am especially angry with myself for getting so attached to my co worker. She is in her forties so became like an auntie figure to me.I used to look after her son and so we got to know each other that way. Ever since her child has gone to nursery, I kind of feel like she doesn't...

    This is something I've went through a lot

    since a long time ago. That time, I would feel pain. Intense pain. Now, I've gotten used to it and I think my heart is numb because things that used to affect me does not affect me anymore. Or maybe it's my wall that are built up higher. Other than that, I've distance myself...

    Can't Help It

    :(

    I get my heart ripped out often.  I feel like so many have just ripped it out of my chest and stomped it.  It has made me overly cautious and I don't like that hesitation in relationships.

    Hmph. >:/

    All the time; I get wrapped up in superficial drama that I really SHOULDNT give a rat's hat about, but I end up caring too much and then being dissapointed in the end. I think we're all a little like this.

    Probably too much for my own good, but what can I say. Food is plentiful, and it just tastes so...good. And the satiafying feeling of a full belly is literal euphoria for me.
