    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...

    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...

    I hurt when I see you on you're phone

    because I know you're talking to girls, I hurt when you go out because I'm scared you're meeting the girls, I hurt when you're not sleeping next to me, I hurt when you say you don't love me, when our bond was so strong, I wish I was stronger because I wouldn't be where I am now...

    I'm very sensitive. I'm very vulnerable.

    I get hurt all the time. Every little thing hurts me. I tend to overthink a lot. I wish I was mentally stronger. I'm emotionally messed up. I feel lonely most of the time. Every little things that happens makes me overthink to the point where I get really frustrated and cry...

    I don't think getting hurt easily is being weak.

    It is a sign of knowing yourself and what's important to you. Not getting hurt is not really a sign of strength either. Sometimes, people don't get hurt because they don't care. A strong person is one who is able to get up and face the world and his/her responsibilities IN...

    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...

    Wanting someone for you is what any could wish,

    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...

    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.
