I Am A Difficult Person To Understand

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,896 People

    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...

    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 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.

    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 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 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'm a bit shy and reluctant to share my deeper

    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...

    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...

    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...
