    Often

    It just feels like people don't want to hear what I have to say, and I know they don't listen. Numerous times I'll tell them something, and they'll either give a distracted answer or just snap at me. Then later, when it comes up, I'll get snapped at for not warning them. Even...

    I really hate this feeling.

    .. I don't know if it's me over think or not.. This guys that I usually text just stop talking to me.. He didn't replay... I feel like I was trying to hard to always talk to him even when I would wait a day so I didn't seem annoying... It's sad because now I don't want to text...

    Sometimes I feel like I comment too much

    or that I message people too many times before they reply. I also feel like Im a burden when talking to someone. They could be doing something of more importance or even funner but they still message me...If you're busy you can always tell me.

    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...

    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

    Today I am feeling like this

    for sure. It seems like no one wants to be around me. When I open my mouth, usually something stupid comes out, and then I get contradicted or corrected. If I am quiet, I just get ignored. Except for saying things that come out wrong (and I am not talking about being mean...

    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.

    Sometimes I ask people questions about what

    they write, simply because I am interested, and I often get quite curt answers, or possibly invitations to rudeness (which are sometimes interesting). There is something I am looking for here, but I need to find it slowly.

    I'm so tired of loving people

    who only toss me crumbs. My H loves me in a lukewarm, old-man kind of way - but there's no passion in it. We haven't had sex since March. My crush - well, it's complicated. There are good reasons why he hasn't been able to give me much. But still. Because what we have has...

    It's A Part Of Me

    I struggle with this greatly, and I think it's a part of my inadequacy with everyone around me. I am always afraid to make the first contact with someone, to phone them, or email or message....because then they are obligated to say hi back, and maybe even talk, when I don't...

    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...

    Every time I try to talk to some people in a

    This is true of the vast majority of people

    who are nice to/friendly with me. I feel that they're just being nice because they feel sorry for the weird girl and they really want me to go away, while I'm the only one who cares about the relationship. Needless to say, most of my relationships don't last long. I even feel...

    One of the reasons I do not like talking to

    people is because I am concerned about how they will feel about my behaviour; I do not want to be a nuisance to any one. It is very difficult for me to make friends. Some people have wanted me to be more active & social, but I worry about how other people will feel about me...

    I think this a lot. I don't know why.

    But I can't text people sometimes. I will take out my phone to think of something and then a voice in my head says don't do it. Don't bother them. So I don't text anyone. But then I wonder later if by not texting them does that make me a bad friend? Do they hate me? And so I...
