    I Wore My Heart Out

    At one point you will realize that you have done too much for someone, that the only next possible step to do is stop. Leave them alone. Walk away. It's not like your giving up, & it's not like you shouldn't try. It's just that you have to draw the line of determination from...

    Sometimes people are just really ignorant

    when you talk about things that deeply effect your emotions. The greatest tragedy is the indifference of good people. Apathy is a horrible social injustice. But preaching to the choir right?

    At Least I Have A Heart!!

    And some men have used it to their advantage,

    but my detriment and heartache. I have a good heart and good intentions. I just want to help when i see that they need someone. I guess its again partly my own fault for acting as a "fixer", wanting to fix what shouldn't be fixed by anyone but that person themselves.

    people too quickly. Whether it's a romantic type of like or a platonic type of like. Wearing my heart on my sleeve isn't something I would change as it would mean being someone I'm not and I'm all for being myself.

    It keeps me away from people.

    It makes friends shut down, all the time, because they can't understand how I feel. They don't like it, they don't want to. Not wanting to understand it because it makes them feel sad too. And if people can't understand how I feel then nobody can see me.

    I Like Being Honest

    I don't see any problem with this. I'm a confident person and I feel like part of that comes from never apologizing for how something makes me feel. My face is easy to read and I wouldn't have it any other way.
