I don't allow people to get too close to me.
I know that life too well.
The moment I start opening up my heart or my feelings, the devil is a few steps away grinning to about what's about to happen next.
Normally I am the one left hurt for letting someone get close to me.
Normally they cut themself out of my life.
Sometimes they just simply forget me and I fade away into a memory.
Sometimes people just die.
I'm afraid to get too close to anyone.
I distance myself so I cannot be hurt.
Some people may think I am hurting myself, bottling everything up, or not being fair to myself by keeping people far away.
Honestly how am I supposed to react since everyone either leaves me anyways or I can't trust someone with my secrets, feelings, or thoughts.
I do not let people close and that is okay.
I just tell them what they need to know and that is it.
