I Am a Different Person When Alone

    I'm Only My Complete Self When I'm Alone.

    This is so true of me, I can't even say. This is not me saying I'm not myself when I'm around other people or my friends, this is saying that I can never be totally myself. First, let me say, that I think to a certain extent, everyone has/feels the need to put up a...

    Not in a bad way but I am different.

    I feel disillusioned by life at the moment. Very saddened and numb at the fact I have experienced a lot of let downs and hurt by the people I thought never would. Hurt like that changes you. I work with children though and everyday I put my hurt aside, smile and focus on them...

    The Vulnerable Me!

    I am easily emotionalized whenever sitting alone watching a movie on my computer or listening to a song. It all becomes much more personal and unbinding for me. I let go.

    The Fun Time

    When I am alone and no one is around. I am the person I truly am. I sing, I dance, I laugh and I cry. But when others are around me I cant be that person, I'm just to embarrassed to be that person. I really wish I could be that person. Maybe one day I will have the confidence to...

    Crazy

    I loose control over myself when alone, so I give life to my hidden madness. My sick state, my disfigured face of rage, guilty, pain, happiness, and wish of die.

    My Friends Don't Know Me

    Yeah, so I've always been quite lonely and sad until recently, and I was surprised how easy it was to be happy around them. My nickname is Happy because I was always so happy to be with them. But at home, alone, everything is just so depressing and I even start crying with no...

    Too Much

    When I am alone, I think too much.  I think about all the things that's wrong with this world. I think about my inability to have children. I think about my boyfriend finally seeing me for the mental patient I really am.  I think about him leaving me because of it one day.  I...
