I Am A Difficult Person To Understand

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,231 People

    I have recently notice how my studies

    and research have altered my internal terminology in terms of psychological processes that frequently occur in many individuals. Emotions have become "variables". Love has become "ballad-sympathy" or "admiration". Narcissistic and shallow people are simply "intro-obsessed". I...

    I don't belong with people.

    They make no sense to me and I make even less sense to them. There are a special few who can deal with me in their presence. Those would be my friends. They might not know my past but at least they try to understand me. At this point my family only knows a hollow mask that I...

    I feel like I've never been accepted anywhere.

    I stick out like a sore thumb. People don't get me and I am comfortable being in that space. I get all uncomfortable when a person tries to understand me and crack the code. I sometimes act unpredictable and difficult so as to prevent a person from getting close to me.

    I am glad I happened on here.

    This is better group therapy because I can stay in the security of my own home. Other times I'm a star in an Oscar winning performance of this is life and death of what I call tripolar! Can you spell narcissist?

    At least that's the perception of me.

    I think there's credence to that argument.

    When you don't see that person you used to see

    everyday, sometimes you feel incomplete, like you're having a really bad day..is it strange when you don't even know that person, still you feel that connection.. that indescribable feeling

    I was raised by my grandparents

    who were born in the 30s and had it hard. They raised me in a way in the environment they knew and grew up in. (Not exactly carbon copy but a lot of aspects). This is partially due to my mom being spoiled to the point she got into some illicit activities. I always feel like I...

    When I'm yelling at you,

    I'm not mad, I'm annoyed. When I have to talk slowly to get my point across, I'm pissed.

    I am a living contradiction.

    I am always seeing static. I am terrified of the shadow people and the blue people. I see the underlying evils of the world but the shallow minded do not. I reject what most people embrace. I guess what was originally right was morphed into something wrong by society, the...

    and it made me cry a lot... The whole conversation did... I should just have t-shirts that say "you will regret talking to me so don't waste your time, I'm not worth it" I don't mean to be confusing... But I guess I can't help it. It would be better for everyone if they didn't...

    Sometimes my thoughts are insane.

    I split my mind into personas. Each representing a segment of my personality. I scare myself sometimes and question my own sanity. Yet, I am a full function individual that contributes to the community and society we know as life.

    I change. A lot. At least

    who I am on the exterior. Some of it is dependant on who is around me. Their needs. My needs. It sounds fake, but I know each instance is true. Like the facets of a jewel, showing different faces. Then there's the parts deep inside. Making up the core of my existence. My...

    There are times like these

    where I'm just waiting for the storm to pass and I don't feel like trying. I don't want to do anything but cry. This emptiness in my heart is getting bigger and travels to my throat from holding in my screams for so long. I could go on and on about why I'm feeling this way...

    I can't explain my feelings well.

    I'm not a person who talks about feelings to begin with. I did about twice and each time people interpret it differently. My voice didn't reach. That much is even more depressing than the problem I tried to explain at first.

    so bad but I know I shouldn't want to. He treats me like utter crap and for some reason i continue to give him the time of day. He plays with my emotions and again, I continue to give him the time of day. He treats me like an option while on the other hand, I treat him as a...

    I Prefer It That Way

    People who meet me think they understand me... until they really start talking to me. And then the confusion sets in. I'm an onion. Some layers are more interesting... others less. If someone wants to understand me, I'd prefer that they have to work at it. Then maybe that...

    I am difficult to understand

    because I do not let people see me inside totally. I keep people at a distance, only allowing them to see what I want them to see. A few times I have tried to let people in and they just do not understand me, even though they say they do, they don't...so I keep my walls up to a...

    Be a friend. No, its not lame.

    Go say hi to the class "geek", go ask a shy girl to the school dance. Call a non popular girl pretty. You have no idea how much it means to them. It saved my life, one simple act of kindness. I was on the verge of suicide, i hated being in the backround, i hated the person i...

    The worst feeling when explaining something is

    after endless explanations when you think that finally they understand they look at your face like" could you explain it again or is this dude crazy?"

    I have Borderline Personality Disorder.

    ..so this statement is totally true of me. I'm moody, am terrified of being abandoned...though it has happened so much now, that it's kind of lost it's hold on me. I push people away even though I want them to stay. I get irritated easily. But then it doesn't last long. I...

    I'm more of a introvert person,

    I blend in with the crowd. So I try not to be noticed, only by my friends and even they sometimes have trouble understanding me. I feel it's because I keep everything about me private and don't really reveal much of my past. I like to just live in the moment and not have any...

    It's like my presence is there

    for a moment, and the next thing, it's completely gone. That's why I never have that mcuh friends in my classes because I tend to back out on almost everything. Just when things keep getting better, I pull it back to a zero in an instant.

    Part of the reason is

    because I am still young and don't fully understand myself. However, now that I have a toddler, school, work, my house and bf I have learned to open up and think a bit differently. I have anxiety over all kind of stuff for no reason, but I have learned how that is a part of me...
