I Always Feel Like I Bother People

    I hate group settings,

    because all that happens is I sit for 2 hours listening to everybody else talk and I just nod my head for a straight 2 hours ...I feel like I shouldn't even be there and they only invited me for sympathy

    'I'm sorry I constantly want to talk to you.

    I'm sorry when you take long to reply, I get sad. I'm sorry if I say things that might annoy you. I'm sorry if I come off as annoying. I'm sorry if you don't want to talk to me as much as I want to talk to you. I'm sorry if I think about you too much and too often. I'm sorry if...

    I feel like I don't belong.

    Like I'm different then the ppl I'm around and no one ever understands and I'm incapable of a right explication for it but I feel as if my difference is my fault and why no one seems to get me, or think I'm "weird"..heh. Thanks for reading:p

    It's true. Some people are not

    even hesitating to tell me this. They say I am annoying, stupid, idiot, etc. Don't they ever wonder how I feel when they say that to me?! It hurts! I wanna cry and run and hide when it happens but I don't. I'm too scared. Instead I say something stupid back. Why can't I stand up...

    Every moment I talk to someone.

    It really sucks. I feel it on this website. If I didn't feel like I'd be alone no matter what, I probably wouldn't say anything.

    I have a tendency to over share.

    I am good I think at reading others

    and I can usually, "take a hint". So, what I don't understand is why people say that I am not bothering them, but it seems that their actions show differently. Don't act like you want to be my friend if you are just trying to be nice. No one is perfect, but the...

    Since I'm not what people stereotype me to be,

    I often feel as though I bother them by simply existing. One of my many corks is that I always feel like I'm in someone's way. I always let others have the right of way because I don't feel like they should be subjected to try and maneuver around me. If someone is walking...

    Including my friends.

    I'll be waiting to see someone for forever, and as soon as I actually get to talk to them, they push me out of the way for someone else. After this, they don't even bother trying to have any social interaction with me even though I try to get them to talk to me. One of my...

    I attended my high school reunion last night (I

    know, I was asking for issues). I was really excited to chat with ppl I never talked to much and catch up... Not one person in 100 approached me to say hi. I had to go up to everyone, most didn't even remember me :/ I felt like such an awkward waste of space.

    when you text someone,

    they don't reply, so a few hours later you text them again and feel bothersome because they probably didn't want to talk to you. Or someone acts completely different around other people than you and you wonder if they are being fake and not really that happy to be around you...
