    I opened up, talked about my life like it was a

    book for you to read. I trusted you and cared about you and now within a matter of days I no longer even exist to you. Today when you walked by me as if you didn't even know me I thought... this must be what it's like to be dead.

    When will I learn? I did something yesterday

    that I knew I shouldn't do, but guess what? I did it anyway. Now I'm sitting here alone, with unneeded thoughts in my head. Thoughts I could've avoided if I'd listen to my gut instinct in the first place.

    Shareing With Others Is a No No!

    Too many times I have thought that I could share intimate moments and feelings with others only to find that they were just being friendly to get the dirt on me.
