    :(

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.
