There is a very wonderful lady in my life, we were friends before, but we have become so much more. At this time my life is very tumultuous, i'm handling a great deal of adversity at this time, and i'm not always the image of positivity. I'm trying to follow my dreams, facing setback, and still holding down a job, well until last friday. I as a man, i'm not the pillar of strength that I should be at this time, yet she is sticking by my side through all of this. My concern is that, her life isn't a bed of roses either, I don't want add any additional strain to her life. I don't feel comfortable showing my vulnerability with her, but she knows when something is wrong, so I can't hide it unless I stay away from her. She doesn't prohibit me from doing anything, she is in no way holding me back from doing anything. My feeling is that I'm too incomplete to be with her now. I'm not used to genuinely caring for anyone this much, nor having anyone stick by me like this, i'm used to fair weather friends. I just don't know if I should be alone and handle my situation, or really let her into my life under these circumstances. I just want to hear some other points of view besides my own.
