I Am A Difficult Person To Understand

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,050 People

    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 believe I am difficult to understand because my thoughts and energy are coming from a different place than is the norm of the people of the earth. There are others on this earth who are like me, and their spiritual lives originates from other realms of existence than the...

    Not sure if others find it difficult to

    understand me coz no one really said this to me. However, I find it difficult to understand myself at times coz I really do not know what I want. It makes me feel as if I am completely lost and don't know what's happening around me. Sometimes I am overly excited and sometimes...

    when people say they are difficult and or complicated.... If that's the situation and it troubles you then why don't you just try and rethink your life and or attitude. It may be easy or hard . I am far from difficult but I did make a life change to not take much seriously and...

    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...

    Then And Now

    I used to want to be the pretty girl that everyone looked at and thought "she's gorgeous!" Never did I realize how petty that was. Everyone is beautiful in their own way, and there's no need to compete for it! Currently, I am quite proud to be a dork and just be myself. The day...

    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 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 don't enjoy writing it out,

    so I'll be brief. Before having children, my parents decided that they wanted two kids and they would stop there. My mother was pregnant with a boy, and they were very happy. He ended up being a miscarriage. They were absolutely devastated and had to have another child quickly...

    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'm paradox. I say I want something simple

    and when it comes along I intentionally mess it up to give it some 'twist' or keep it fun. I dont want simple, it bores me. I want real. I want adventures. People find it hard to keep up with me simply because I'm complicated myself.

    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...

    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.

    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 suppose this is true.

    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...
