LET ME LET YOU IN ON SOMETHING

Lately I've been writing a lot about my past relationships. I've had a ton of great responses. People saying that they know how it feels, they've "been there" and people have just shown support. All of which I appreciate. Although someone recently made the comment that maybe I shouldn't be sooo open. That I sounded "pathetic" At first I thought "maybe they are right?". I probably sound like a some emotional basket case. (Sometimes I probably am)

Then, I started thinking. I am a naturally very open person. Maybe too open. What you see is what you get. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I'm sensitive and I take too many things personally. That's just me. I've always been the person that if someone didn't like me...I wanted to know why. That is something I wish I could break.

So, for me not to be open, is something that I'm not sure if I can curb. People always say "Don't change for anyone" "Be yourself". So if I started to be more of a private person that wouldn't be me. I will say...there is somethings that shouldn't be revealed. But here is the thing....I'm talking about human feelings...my feelings. I'm not passing out my phone number and address to the public. To me that's private.

Erin,
If there is any thing sure in life it's that it will suck. I get alot of comfort from that. I always keep in mind that no matter how good things are, eventually something really bad is going to happen. Always has, always will. So enjoy being on top of the world when you're there, it could come crashing down tomorrow. And when bad things do happen it's going to hurt, and probably for a long time. That's ok. If nothing were bad, nothing could be good. And for God's sake don't give out your personal information, Jeffery Dahmer was from Milwaukee! We miss you in STL, lunchtime ain't the same.

I am the same way. Very open, very sharing of myself. I've found some people like that about me and others, not so much. But I am what I am. I sometimes wish I weren't so sensitive sometimes... There are alot of people out there that are very quick to judge, and I'm just wondering, when did that become ok?
