Sometimes we expose ourselves to others just so they know we are willing to give. sometimes I am WAY too frightened to give of myself. but I'm starting to learn. that's the things about new relationships - romantic or friendship. You have to trust the person enough to be able to let them 'in' and let them know that you aren't just going to take what they offer. Both sides need to be doing something. aight. those are my thoughts.. off to sleepy land now.
