Stronger But Find It Harder To LoveI've been through some hard times in my life as told by the stories posted already.
Through those times I have always had something positive going on, usually my education. When bad things happened to me, I just worked harder on the positive things to offset the bad. This has given me an education which will be valuable in years to come whilst the hard times have ebbed away. It has also made me a stronger person.
But I feel I have payed a price. Because people I love or cared for have hurt me during my life, I am now more cautious and sceptical about people. Maybe I loved too easily in the past and now love the appropriate amount. I'm hoping this is the case.
I just hope when good people come into my life I can love them enough. I feel I do this more or less now but I think time will be the best judge of this.
