    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...

    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...

    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.

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

    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.
