    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...

    Always and Forever

    I wanna feel safe no matter where  I can. I love the feeling of being. It to me is like sitting on the beach looking at the ocean.

    I've only felt safe once in my life.

    I want to feel that again. It might not be realistic to think I'll find that again. But a girl can have hope and dream! *Smiles a half smile*

    Don't Know How

    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...

    Wherever I am whoever I'm with I have to always

    be on guard, doing my best to remain invisible to feel even some level of closure. When I'm being touched it's the worst I feel nothing but fear and panic that they're to hurt me, even if it's a partner which makes things easier seeing in single. I wish things was different...

    After years of being uncomfortable

    and reluctant to try new things, I met an amazing guy. I met him in March, but nothing happened between us until June. We got really close, and we dated for a while. He made me feel safe. Even though I felt safe with him, I hated being with him. He was great, perfect even, but I...

    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
