I'm waiting for the right person."

"Sometimes ... I think that the only person that loves me and cares about me is myself ... sometimes I feel like guys only want to play mind games with me and after I actually like them ... they ignore me and never cared about me in the first place ... maybe the only person I can trust is myself ... maybe that is why I feel like no one will actually see the real me and inside my heart or what the shape of it is because there isn't someone out there for me ... and that's why I am so insecure about falling in love again."
