    My Pattern Is Always the Same.

    I am going about my dull, boring life.  Then, someone from work or one of my friends invites me to go somewhere.  Finally a chance to get out, I think to myself.  Then, as the day approaches, I find myself dreading going anywhere.  I don't really want to hurt...

    Always Have

    I am guilty of this, when people are out having fun...I'm not there. I have let love slip away, because I don't think that they are into me. My mind has a strange way of thinking about things. I don't see positive outcomes, I only see the negative in things.
