    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

    It is my nature. I think I scare people away with this nature, which is out of good intention. I can easily care about even a random stranger who is having that I-have-a-bad-day look. It makes me wants to put my hand on their shoulders and tell them everything will be okay. Of...
