    How ironic it is that you can enlighten

    someone's life by just talking to them but you can't do it to yourself. You can make other people laugh so hard wherein you are the one who needed it the most. You can always ease their feelings but your own heart was left with tons of pains and disappointments.

    Honestly why bother? People will always hurt

    you. You can be a great person and care about someone but do they feel the same? Can you believe them?? I just don't know anymore, all caring has done for me is bite me in the ***.

    I'm guilty of caring too much about people.

    They see me as a nice giving person but no one ever stops to give to me in return. Once people get what they want or need from you, they could care less because they're already set & taken care of. I've come to terms with the fact that I'll be a second thought at best. It is...
