Not Too Close Please

I have had trust issues all my life and I think it had alot to do with all the bullying I got in school. I think it was just because I was the quiet my peers and some teachers found because I didn't speak they would for me and I had rumors everywhere about me, I remember specifically how isolated I felt, I wouldn't wish that kind of punishment in anyone. Ever since then my self esteem has trickled itself down into a little puddle and I find it easier to put on a false fa├žade for others to see.

But now I'm older I feel trusting others should be alot easier and I assumed with time my life would just correct itself but unfortunately I was wrong. What am I meant to do when I guy I like actually likes me back but I can tell he is utterly confused about my own intentions. I've never really been in this kind of position because I generally never let anyone get through my little barrier, and since now it hasn't really been a massive problem but I really like this guy, how do I let him in, and how do I know he won't hurt me?

No one can hurt you, you hurt yourself, if you kling to someone and they leave, or you expect

something and don`t get it, or need someone, the list is endless, the pain is your ego not

getting what it wants, never expect any thing in life and you will never be disapointed.
