    Once Bitten, Twice Shy.

    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...

    To Trust Or Not to Trust

    I trust until given a reason not to. It's taken me a lifetime to get here. I used to belong to the "No One Is Trusted Until They've Proven Themselves" Group. When someone hurts us we often close down in a hopeless attempt to prevent future pain. I did, until I realized...
