This is exactly why I don't open up to people. What if they don't care about me as much as I thought they did? They to HAVE to show me exactly how much they care about me before I feel confident enough to open up to them.
This is so true it hurts. I try so hard to hide all of my emotions and be happy all the time when my heart is breaking and slowly killing me. I try to be strong for everyone that I love even if I am crying myself to sleep.
