"You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart, maybe you'll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. The thought of losing so much control over personal happiness is unbearable. That's the burden. Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us to fly..."
-Dr. Jack Hodgins (Bones)

I am human.
I try to hide it.
I wear a “mask” all the time
Trying to hide myself

But I have urges
I have needs
I have cravings
I have desires
I have dreams
I have feelings
And as hard as I try to hide these,
they sometimes come out

I try to make people think that I am tough
Make them think I am fearless
Tell them I can handle anything and do anything
Show them how strong I am...

But I am not all these things

Inside I am vulnerable
Everyone is vulnerable at one point
When you’re injured, you are vulnerable
When you’re in love, you are vulnerable
When you take that “mask” off, you are vulnerable

But it is this vulnerability that makes us human
It is this ability to make ourselves vulnerable
that makes us human
