I’m scared to let my guard down. My childhood was good, I wasn’t abused, my needs were met overall I grew good. But I didn’t grow up with my mom or dad and I never had someone who cared for my emotional needs like how a child to turns to their parent for emotional support. It’s made me very reluctant to be become attached to people because I fear that I loose my independence if other people are the cause of my happiness
I relate to this so much. I had people, but my dad died and my mom was a no-good drugie. It’s okay to let your guard down. Remember that not everyone is out to hurt you!! There are still good people in this world who will give you the love and support that you need.
I know that you’re right , I should be more open to the possibility.
don’t rush it if you don’t feel that you are ready. Just know there are still good people out there.
