    I'm Afraid To Be Hated

    This is my biggest fear. I'm not afraid of dying, be killed, kill, swim, spiders, to fly or anything else, but I'm afraid to be hated. And I do whatever the other people want to see or say what they want to hear so I won't be hated. I never realized this (until this night) but it...

    Always Scared

    I know where it stems from.  I pigeon holed myself ages ago, and my assumption has been that if I was not liked at school then it will apply in adulthood. That's not the case though, people like me but I have this invisible barrier up that only a few people seem to get...

    I Don'T Understand...

    I try to be that girl. That girl who is kind, laughs all the time, and makes jokes. I 'smile' hoping that it's all okay. Sometimes I wonder, you never know what people actually think about you. I'm ugly. I know that. But what else? It can be a petrifying thought. Do they hate me...

    I Feel So Lonely

    I feel kind of weird writing this, but at the age of 25 I feel as if I have only two people in my life - my partner and my friend K. Everyone else seems to hate me, or, and this is almost worse, just be indifferent to me. I don't know what it is but I just seem to upset people...

    No, in reality, I don't hate people.  In fact, I'd do anything for anyone.  However, what I DO hate is when people are rude or obnoxious or snobbish--that I cannot stand.  In my eyes, all people are basically the same, and that's what originally motivates me to...
