    I am actually a pretty easy going

    and upfront individual. I love people to know me and to know what to expect from me the minute that they see me and begin talking to me. I don't believe in putting up a false front and being disingenuous to those around me because it gets in the way of communication and building...

    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...

    My boyfriend just said there's nothing wrong

    with me I'm just bipolar and bored. And that I'm immature and childish because I don't like being alone for a long time. I still can't stop crying. It hurt so much coming from the only person in my life that's there for me that I thought believed me and understood me. Maybe I...

    I'm nt afraid of goodbyes,

    I'm afraid of being trapped.. I dont fear being alone, I fear being unwanted.. I don't care abt being bad, I care abt being worthless.. I'm nt difficult at all, I'm just discreet..

    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 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 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...

    The title is an understatement.

    But if you are a nice person and a sincere one you won't find me difficult to understand. Instead you will 'get me'. But there are few people like that these days.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    I don't seem to like being tied down.

    I love the thought of being with someone but when it actually comes to it... I, you could say, freak out quietly in my mind. I reject anyone who tries to get close or who takes interest because I don't want to hurt them and I also don't want to be owned. I like to be free... My...

    I am definitely not a easy person to fathom.

    I have many sides as I play many roles everyday. I am a businesswoman and demand perfection when it comes to work. I can lose my temper when things don't proceed as planned. I can be nasty in terms of words to my suppliers when they don't follow instructions. I am also a animal...

      Because I don't

    even understand myself sometimes. So much for self awareness. I guess there's more to discover or I'm just naive or sometimes I ignore why I do what I do. Which is why I tend to be quiet more often than I'd like when ask that why am I so difficult to read/understand. *sigh

    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.
