    Wanna Go Sleeveless

    Some people say I wear my heart on my sleeve. Well from now on I think I will go sleeveless. I get tired of people using my emotions against me so just pass me a tank-top.  I am ready to go sleeveless.

    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.

    That's me lol. I tend to fall in like with

    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.

    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.

    and spikes on the other. It depends on how you treat me that decides on which side you stand. I weigh things out and am both understanding and forgiving, but I am no fool.

    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?

    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.
