You've got to hand it to anyone brave enough to get involved with a Cancer native. They know how hard it can be to break through that hard shell covering their delicate emotions.
Let's face it, though. The reward is getting to be with you, and that's pretty great. Try not to be hard on people you're just getting to know. They may not know how sensitive you are, and may inadvertently step on your toes.
It's not personal. Though you're easily wounded, you're also an amazing healer. Let the potential of love be the ultimate Band-Aid.
