    Repeating History

    There's only so many times you can watch the exact same story play out before it makes you just a little cynical. Guys think they're smart about it but really every one of them that I've ever encountered plays a slightly different variation of the exact same game, each one...

    I Don't Just Think....

    When getting into a friendship/relationship, I would always say to myself, I will not give this person the power to hurt me, and over time, little by little, they work theirselves into my heart, and into my mind, and soul, and next thing I know, they are one of the people who can...

    There Is No Reason I Should Ever Change My Mind.

    Everyone is going to hurt me.  That is just inevitable.  My heart is locked in a box, the key has been grinded down into dust, then sprinkled in a fire.

    I Think I Expect Everyone To Hurt Me.

    As much as i try to find the beauty in everyone i am well aware that none is perfect. And by knowing this I expect them to disappoint me in some way shape or form. Im not proud of it in fact it scares my every single day its like im jus waiting for something bad to happen.

    Everyone Is Out To Hurt Me......

    I believe everyone is out to emotionally hurt me, because it has been happening to me for most of my life. It seems like I have been attracted to dysfunctional people who have taken advantage of my kindness and caring due to having a gentle heart. There was a time in my life...

    It Is Sad

    but I have to admit that on some level this is true. It is a generalization of course, there are a few people who have not let me down, but for the most part people have been very hard on my soul. At some point you can't blame everyone else, I am hard to get to know and don't...
