I Often Get Hurt For Caring Too Much

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 472 People

    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.

    This is something I've went through a lot

    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...

    :(

    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.
