    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.
