I’m not always as confident as I seem

I’m not always as confident as I seem. There are many nights and many days when all I want is to be held. I love being held. Always. Sometimes I don’t want to talk about what is bothering me. Sometimes I just want a hug. Someone who will let me cry.
I wear my heart on my sleeve, but I am not naive.
I know what it feels like to be completely broken and I am all too familiar with what it means to be hurt.
I know what it’s like to see something funny and not laugh.
I’ve been taken advantage of, used, and abused. My feelings have been blatantly disregarded.
But I still believe that all people are good at heart.
And my trust in people has not diminished. To be completely honest, I hope it never does. Ever.

  1. I believe we’re all vulnerable, even those who show a public tough exterior.

    Being that way isn’t bad; it’s saying that we all get hurt and feel low sometimes.

    A weak person wouldn’t admit that.
