I tremble every time you call me. I tremble after the phone call. Why… My heart starts to ache and I’m shaking as I’m asking these questions.

Back to being alone. I was so independent that I was not getting use to having someone there for me all the time. I’m always scared that they’d leave. Getting use to be independent is way harder than getting use to being dependent on others.

Just because I laugh and make jokes doesn’t mean it’s alright for you to make me as your entertainment. I laugh because laughing is my remedy to my aching heart. Doesn’t give you the privilege to make fun of me. I laugh it off because I tell myself don’t be unhappy about it. 

I may come off rude when you try talking to me because I want to see how long and how much effort you’re willing to do to get me open up to you. Or you’re just one of them that give up easily and leave.

I learned the hard way that I cannot always count on others to respect my feelings - even if I respect theirs. Being a good person doesn’t guarantee that others will be good people. You only have control over yourself and how you choose to be as a person. As for others, you can only choose to accept them or walk away.
