    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.

    Separate

    I sometimes think my emotions are a separate entity with a mind of their own.  They creep up on me when I least expect it.   I had such a happy morning, just doing chores around the house and messing and cuddling with my dogs.  Mugs of tea and toast and half...

    Bad At It

    I am not good at handling my emotions. The difficult part is that I am very sensitive and get hurt easily. I have learnt from experience that it is not wrong to be sensitive but it is wrong to show people my vulnerability, so I pretend like I am tough. Small things disturb me...
