But his own fear of more heartache made him over-prepare for pain. He overstocked his defenses.
Reconnaissance for Love
Kitten Holiday

Well told…this story of past hurts. This story of destruction…self destruction.

A past love…I felt lied to, betrayed, and abandoned. Now…overcoming that hurt…not quite…I hurt another.

I failed myself. I thought I had it…learned, understood, forgave, healed…was open to the next. But, I did not see it coming…one day it was just there…panic ensued. I prepared to be hurt and abandoned…again. Funny how that is a self fulfilling fear.

There is still a small chance…but, she has her own fears. I may have learned…maybe even grown. But, I cannot conquer the fear for both of us.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
