    Caring and Forgiving

    I'm a pretty caring person. I have empathy for others. And I trust what people tell me about themselves and their situations. I take people at face value, and am not usually suspicious unless their story sounds way too far-fetched. And even when I find out that something told to...

    And Sometimes Even After I Do Have A Reason Not To.

    I guess i am just one of those people... the ones that have a hard time letting go? Even after all I've been through with my ex. The pain, the control, the offenses, the abuse... all of it. Even his unforgivable sin of betrayal against me..... I still care. I haven't trusted...
