I have decided that i don't like to feel vulnerable... i need to hide behind the mask that i've tried to perfect over the years. It keeps me safe, it keeps me to myself, which is the way it should be. It used to give me the strength to bury the pain inside and to keep the tears from coming. Even though that doesn't work anymore, the mask keeps life simple... it keeps people from getting too close. If i don't grow close to people, it makes it easier to be left behind, when everyone decides to up and leave once again. My thoughts and feelings, they're too easy to be taken advantage of without the mask.
