    I was going to message someone

    because I havent talked to them in a while and when I open up the window I see all messages from me to them.. I second thought it and closed it. I feel like if I spam anymore they will hate me. I enjoy talking to them. There look on things and input is interesting to me. But...

    I feel like they don't want to talk with me! So I just leave them alone!

    As much as i would like to talk about my

    problems I feel like I actually am what I was accused of. Am I really as sensetive as I think I am or am I just as obsessive as they claim I am. Im my head everytime I feel down and I wish to talk about it I feel like I annoy people because I can't get over it. I know I can but...

    When I am in one of my moods I feel I can be a

    terrible nuisance, so I tend to sit back be all Silent Bob-ish

    Why oh why do I do this to myself?

    Feeling as though when I attempt conversation, I'm a continual bother. Feeling that the other person might not (never) wish to speak again, so letting them message you (which they never do). Sigh... I really should just quit while I'm ahead.

    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...

    '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 never send anyone messages first

    because I feel like it bothers them. I don't want to bother anyone that doesn't want me to . I wouldn't mind if anyone sent me a message :)

    I think I bottle things up to the point

    where I explode and start ranting to people about things that make me angry. So then I try to bottle it back up and not say anything. Well the cycle repeats and, obviously, doing the same thing and expecting different results is insanity. So I guess I'll post around here some...

    I always feel like a nuisance to people,

    but it's refreshing when I occasionally find someone who finds my jokes hilarious. Someone who wouldn't mind getting drunk with me and watching Netflix until we fall asleep. Someone who will give me the boost of confidence I need when I'm scared. Someone who listens to me vent...

    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.

    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...

    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

    does anyone ever feel

    so embarrassed to be alive? Does anyone else just hate when people look/think about you? Like people just sit up and think about how dumb and worthless your life is or just like you bother people. I know i do, nobody at school or that i talk to ever even responds to my messages...

    Whenever somebody asks "are you okay?

    " or "whats wrong?" I try not to tell them whats bothering me cause i dont want to seem burdensome. If i do tell them they think im lying just to get attention. i promise i dont lie.

    but i just can't. I'd ruin everything. I don't want to bother you anymore than i already have. Forget all about me, everyone else did and they all seem so happy.

    so much and it's been a long time since someone has been in my life who calls to check on me. I miss knowing that I have people who I can go to. I feel so alone.

    for help to do things sometimes I feel like I'm bothering my friends when I asked him to help me so I try and do things more myself to be independent and to not bother them. Occasionally I do get hurt when I tried to do things I can't then my friends get mad and then ask me why...

    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...

    Its like I want to chat

    so bad with this person but i feel like I would annoy him. Then i would get the courage to text him but then he wont respond until like 16 hours later and it makes me feel like **** because I knew that I was probably gonna bother him if i text him.

    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...

    Whether it's texting,

    when I try talking to her. I'm always happy to let her talk, listen to her, and let her get things off her chest, but it seems like she doesn't like talking to me anymore. It makes me sad. I think I'll stop talking to her for awhile so she doesn't have to deal with me. I don't...

    I do bother people. I feel like sometimes

    people only talk to me because it's something to do. I end up becoming atleast in my eyes an obligation or a burden in some way. I try to be patient and for the most part I am but I just feel like people are starting to hate me

    feels that they spend more time their phones then with me. And when other people are around they actually put their phones down and have some fun... without me.

    I legit feel like an intruder every time I go

    into a room because there are groups and I feel like they stop their conversations specifically because I am there. I feel like my presence can become a nuisance to those who want to talk but I'm there and so I just leave and I feel so unwanted
