    Most Of The Time I'm In Control Of My Emotions

    Although I am a sensitive girl. I must expect too much from people. I know I expect a lot of myself. I give 100 % and maybe even more in a friendship/relationship and am disappointed when it's not returned. I have learned not to have expectations but still am disappointed when...

    It Would Be Nice

    then I wouldn't be hurt so much and not as trusting as I should be.  I am practicing this "be more trusting" theory.  Sucking so far.

    Being Alone

    If nothing else, I wish I had the control to crush love. To eradicate it from my very being. To stop caring about a person who at one point....well, they felt important.But they're nothing. Nothing to me any more. And I still have this blasted aching feeling, and I want rid of it...
