I Am a Walking Contradiction

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 523 People

    Somewhere along the way,

    I started looking at any applicable situation from as many angles as I could think of. Even with that, you know you're missing a lot, but if you don't really consider beyond your first thought you're missing even more. It makes things more interesting, but at the same time it...

    Starvation...

    I strive for something more. I feel like I'm constantly being held back and I'm so tired of people sometimes I just want to slap someone. I'm tired of people, yet I crave company. I am a contradiction of my own being. I sometimes feel so confident yet I'm always confused. I'm...

    Who Am I?

    My personality is filled with contradictions, or seems to be. It's hard to point out specifics, but overall I just feel like the things in my mind contradict each other. I sometimes show it, but I don't think it comes out all that much. I could be wrong of course.I am a...

    Contradiction

    I'm starting to look deeper inside of me, to get to know the real me better but I just found out that I am a contradiction. My ethnicity does not match my physical appearance. My musical interest don't match what I should like. I hate conflicts but have no trouble starting one. I...

    I Am Me?

    To a passerby, it may seem like I'm constantly contradicting myself.  I may be actually, but only because no words could ever describe how i perceive the world.  Sometimes, Our inner-most contradictions are just our special blend of life coming to the surface.

    Despair - loss of hope; hoplessnesss.

    Contradiction - a statement or proposition the contradicts itself and is logically incongruous. ~It seems as if throughout what has been my existence so far, despair has always followed me. Sometimes I feel as if I'm drawn towards despair; that it's something I need. This...

    The Pugnacious Pacifist

    Every time I can accurately say something about myself it surprises me. There are so many things about me that contradict, I don't think I truly know myself in my entirety. As the title suggests, I am a pugnacious pacifist. There are many times I'm readily disposed to fight, but...

    for doing things. Then I go and and do the same things. I'm thin, but I'm fat. I'm tall, but I'm short. I love knowledge, yet I know nothing. I sometimes dress all in black - a little bit gothic - I guess. Yet, I'm a book worm. Equally, I sometimes dress like a tomboy/nerd, and...

    I am constantly changing my opinions. From night to day. And they are of extremes. I like, then I dislike. I say, then I contradict. But it is never a lie. Never.

    I'm also a contradiction in myself.

    I rant about being tough and taking care of myself, but then talk about being a submissive. Let me explain. When I'm on my own, I do take care of myself and I'm damn proud of that. Submission is a gift, in my opinion. And when I find a man worthy of that gift from me, I give...

    I just am because my emotions dictates my

    perception. One second I'd think everyone is better than me and I'm the pest. Then I'd get angry and think they're so close minded for not accepting me and they deserve to perish they're mean and cruel.

    My Thoughts

    Contradiction is part of being human, the only way to avoid being walking contradiction would be to deny the pieces of myself that don't fit nicely into the designated slots someone else believes they should. On the other hand when they fit they fit and there's no reason to...
