    I have made myself very complicated

    and I think I can never be with anyone in my life now. So, do not waste time coming close to me or spend time talking 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?

    Most people don't understand me.

    And to be honest I don't expect them to. Which is why I don't readily talk about myself or my life. But there is one person who I think really understands me. And I feel I can honestly tell this person anything. Even the things I never told anyone. And all I can say is, if you...

    I realized that I only post about negative

    things in my life. I guess I just enjoy using this as a source of venting! My life really isn't THAT bad. I have good days just as I do bad ones. Although, wine does keep me sane. ❤️🍷❤️

    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.

    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 don't know where to start this off,

    but I'll just first say that I can't do anything remarkable. I'm not special. I'm not good at anything. I'm just ordinary. I try so hard to change that, but nothing I do is good enough. I'm slowly starting to rethink all of this. I'm starting lose hope. I'm not seeing a...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    What I've noticed during my Method research in

    The BlackHole was quite interesting. When you empty your pulse, a vacuum effect occurs. In order to empty your pulse, you must abolish any emotion and behaviors. This creates an absence of substance. Imagine a balloon that must always be full of air. If you empty it, it will do...

    I have recently notice how my studies

    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...

    I suppose this is true.

    I hear it all the time. I prefer facts over gossip so I tend not to get overly excited over issues until I know exactly what's going on. If there any type of drama - I retreat. I like to roll ideas around in my head before expressing any commentary. Because unlike the majority...

    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.

    The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.
