My Independence Isn’t a Strength — I’m Too Much of a Coward to Love

And it will always be my biggest regret.

I’m fiercely independent, mostly because the idea of relying on or trusting someone else feels embarrassing.

I’m a control freak who doesn’t want anybody else touching my emotions.

My intuition has been wrong about people. I thought that I found a reliable person I could trust, and I was wrong.

But if I can’t trust someone with the power to hurt me, how can I trust them with the power to impact me for the better?

Hey, we’re both tiny specks in a universe full of stars that happened to exist at the same time. Cool!
