    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...

    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...

    Don't Want to Think About It

    But I try not to focus on such a negative. It's like celery. Who wants to think about how celery has negetive calories? Nobody, especially not me. I just move right on to the chocolate and forget it. Well, try to, It sometimes creeps up at me and takes a bite, but I battle my way...

    I Am Now A Perfectionist.

    Ever since I was a child, people would always exclude me from things. Like at school I would be part of the popular group of friends but on the weekends I was always home. I was always afraid people were talking about me because my personality is louder and I am talkative...

    I Have This Fear Specially In Ep

    Because of the cultural difference. I'm very interested in other cultures, it's a legit interest, and I usually ask people to explain something to me, and they tend to be sometimes aggressive. I don't know if I don't express myself well, but I try to be as nice as I can...

    I'm just paranoid I guess, but I always think people are talking about me, looking at me, judging me, and ultimately hating me. I always feel like I say or do the wrong things, even on EP. Its getting better now, but I went through a brief period of thinking all but a few on EP...

    The Old Memories That Can't Let Go

    From the 1st grade, I felt insecure, for some reason my classmates bullied me and I had no guts to say something to them, to protect me. I started to hate them, I felt the injustice. WHY? WHY? WHY that happened to me... I felt angry and tired of the same everyday routine which...

    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...

    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...

    It's Kind of Ridiculous

    I've always been afraid that people hate me. I overreact to so many little things. I've always thought if people didn't talk to me, that they have to hate me. Or if they talked to me before but don't now, oh, they have to hate me. It's even started bothering me on the Internet...

    who felt this way. I am ALWAYS thinking that people secretly hate me. Even my friends. I always worry that they are just being friends with me, to make things easier. I guess I am just a bit paranoid about myself I guess. I just always feel like I am being judged, and hated for...

    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...
