I have done nothing. I have felt it all my life and still feel it. I have really never made myself vulnerable except for maybe letting 2 people partially in. One being a therapist but my whole life it had been a practice to not make myself vulnerable for fear that it may be used against me and some people in my life have done just that. How do you go from always being told negative things about you to believing that it isn't true. I've had constant negative reinforcement my whole life, then the one time you let someone know that it bothers you, your considered weak. I've always tried to be strong and not let anyone know that I am so weak, everything I have done that is beneficial for me, I have done for someone else. That's only because I don't know what I want to do. I do know for sure that I love my son more than anything and at some point I loved my ex-wife that way too. But my son is the one who keeps me going and motivates me to never quit even when I am crippled. I know that I'm very self destructive and when things are supposed to be at it's greatest, I find someway to destroy it, obliterate it till it is ruined. But with my son it's different he helps me even when I am so weak.
