Do Tell: Do You Tend to Overprotect Yourself?

Our emotions are very delicate and they can be easily bruised. Of course some people are more sensitive than others, but even if you have thick skin, we all get hurt feelings from time to time. Experiencing a broken heart is no laughing matter, which is why so many people overprotect themselves to avoid ever having to relive that pain. But when you overprotect, you often miss out on potential life experiences, when, in reality, putting yourself out there could be well worth the risk.

Now ladies, I'll be the first to admit that I'm guilty of overprotecting myself from time to time, so do tell: Are you one to build walls in order to protect yourself from getting hurt too?
