    It's hard to be the bad guy.

    I don't like being the bad guy; I always try to be the good guy. But there comes a time when you have to choose between standing up for for yourself and being a doormat for other people. For a long, long time, I chose to be the doormat. Why? Simple- It's the easiest thing...

    Can't Talk.

    I can't help but shut everyone out. I can't talk to anyone about anything really anymore. People try and get me to talk to them and I just completly push them away even when I don't want to. I guess I'm scared in a way about telling people things but it's too hard.

    I think at first I built up these walls to see

    who cared enough about me to try to knock them down. But now, because I got so used to have them up I block people out, I don't let people get close.
