I opened myself up to someone...trusted them...and lo and behold I've had my heart crushed.

I guess you can't live a full life without giving of yourself, but man does it hurt sometimes. 

So many times in my life I have let myself be me and in turn been hurt.  Maybe that's why I've been depressed for 20 years.  I stopped being myself and have been trying to be who I think I'm "supposed" to be.


  1. Debbie - I completely know how you feel. I have had the very same experience recently, and it makes you want to crawl back to where you were - because at least then you were "prepared", so to speak.

    It hurts because we opened up.... but honestly, living out loud is better. And finding kindred spirits? Well ~ that's just the best. :)

    Thinking of you and knowing it will all work out for you on your journey. I admire your courage. Your life will be better for it.

  2. I love the phrase "living out loud".

    Thanks Kim. I'll be thinking of you too.
