    Sometimes, not All the time,

    but sometimes... It's me. We see in movies and tv shows characters constantly saying "it's not you... It's me" but, how can we actually be sure it really is us? But in my life and in my eyes, it's me. It's my fault for putting my self in the situations I cry to get out of... And...

    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 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 loathe emotion in lieu of logic.

    I fight to not be overwhelmed by my emotions and after so many years, it's become easier to set aside how I feel. I could be considered sociopathic by those who do not realize I have a good heart. It would be easier to be understood if I was willing to be as honest about my...

    I was told this today

    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...

    Hello. My name is Jacob

    and a while ago, I created an interconnecting system of understanding people and using that understanding to help others. A little over two months ago, I shut it down. I felt like it was harming me more than it was helping me. Also, I had more important things to care about...

    How do I become a nicer person?

    When I first took on my current role as manager, I was a nice and pleasant person to deal with. I still carried most of my ideals about being everyone’s friend at work. But over the years I have really toughened up, and now I see I have become quite hard. Don’t get me...

    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 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...

    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 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.

    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.

    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...

    Sometimes I have really great days.

    I make tons of jokes. I laugh constantly. I am sweet and cuddly. Then... I have dark days. Days where I lay in the dark and cry. Days where I don't eat. I don't sleep. I don't move. It's hard to balance the two. Because sometimes my life just over whelms me. But I know each day...

    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...
