    It is terrible being

    so sensitive. I am so sensitive that I start crying when I get told no, even if it is just because they don't have the item I want at the restaurant. Strangers instantly assume I'm spoiled rotten. I have been told no multiple times. It has gotten to the point I can't even ask...

    mostly cause they've been hurt and go thru the pain and fear of going with someone for the fear of getting hurt again, I know I've been through it and I live through that fear, I don't wanna get hurt again, I just wish to find someone but it seems like a lost case for me but for...

    Just the other day I met up with an old friend.

    It had been years since I last saw her so I was pretty excited to catch up. Well it took a turn for the worse when some old wounds were ripped open. We started arguing about the subject and it just brought back so many negative feelings I have about myself. This particular...

    Idk about everyone else

    but I was raised a certain way. It's not even that, it's also what I feel is right and wrong deep inside. I try to be and treat people a certain way and when I don't get the same respect back from loved ones and people close to me, I tend to shut them out. I get upset. I get...

    Sometimes when people bring me down I can't help

    but wish that I was stronger and didn't let their words and actions impact me so much. I'm a sensitive person, and if you say something mean about me I start to feel self-conscious about that because I now know that somebody has noticed. I try everything for it to not get...

    I'm naive. I'm dumb. I'm young.

    I make stupid desions. I fall in love to easily. And I'm a pretty smart girl. But when a boy with a beautiful brain and smile walks into my life. A nightmare dressed like a daydream. I end up getting hurt.
