She was scared. Scared to love. Scared to open herself up to the world. To share her heart with someone else. Scared of change, insecurities and disappointment. Afraid of heartbreak and loss. Afraid of being alone and unhappy. Frightened that she's not good enough, or pretty enough. Will she ever be? Will she ever love? Can she be herself around him? Afraid of trust. Scared of falling in love too fast, too hard. Scared, lost and alone in this hollow, empty world.
