    Safe And Sound.

    The time I felt safe. Was in my exs arm. I felt protected and loved. Until he cheated. I have him another chance. He blew it. I didn't even comment with a text or a sound. I just let him be him, somewhere else. I'm listening to the song btw :) lol

    Scared of Everything

    I'm scared, scared of everything. I am intimidated by the life itself and all that it brings to me. I find myself holding myself back, just that the Life wouldn't notice me.... I'm sure that if I would get all it's attention, I would be in so much trouble. Oh, how I yearn to...

    Safe?

    I want to feel safe from myself. I know the steps I can take to be "safe" (ie: stop cutting/burning myself, stop purging, get rid of the hoarded pills, the revolver and ammo.), but can't bring myself to DO them. Thankfully, I am not a danger to anyone else - just...

    I have trouble finding things that make me feel safe. I've had too many things happen, and so I am always scared of what's going to happen next, or how I'll deal with it. I 'look over my shoulder' all the time to see if something's lurking back there, waiting to strike. I know I...
