I have always known I was different. Growing up, situations would confuse me. I would hear of people in trouble and would automatically run to their defense, do anything to defend them especially those that can`t speak for themselves. It would always be that I would feel a certain sense of accountability for them. There were times when I would get in trouble because of this. As I matured, my environment also matured. I soon discovered, I have the tendency of doing whatever I could to help someone get out of petty (to me) messes but later on get terribly hurt at the first sign of disappointment inflicted to me by my recipients. I know it is wrong but it is as if I expect something in return. I very, very seldom get anything back and that makes me feel empty. When I get hurt, I automatically shut myself out from everything and everyone that reminds me of the hurt. I habitually burn bridges and realize I have trust issues. How do I fix that?
