    Being Misunderstood Is A Way Of Life For Me

    I have finally begun to understand, at this late stage in life, where the source of this persecution is rooted. I believe each of us that share this fate have been given the gift of insightfulness, vision, creativity, interpretation, and foresight. We mean well and seek to...

    Many Wont Understand, Unfortuantely

    I'm only 15, and in highschool. I know teenagers say they are "misunderstood", but I'm actually misunderstood, mostly my my friends and classmates. I feel like a weirdo, an alien from some other freaking planet, when I talk to others. I say something and they are so quick to...

    I Am Just Very Misunderstood And I Can't Stand It!

    I feel like no one understands what I am trying to say or anything I want to do most of the time. When I say I feel like no one understands me, I literally feel like they don't understand me. For example: I would be having a conversation about a certain topic...like nature or the...

    Sick Of It

    It's really starting to **** me off that the people I'm around on a daily bases misunderstand my words, actions, and intentions and think I'm something I'm not. I'm to the point where I no longer want to open up to anybody I know, because they almost always let me down. I'd...

    This should be considered as nothing more than a rant - Non-sensicle ravings of a burdened mind who wants to share but has no real opportunity, much less need...... I'm the odd kind. The kind who talks to oneself and mouths the words to their favorite songs and movies. The kind...

    I Have Always Been Misunderstood

    People always have looked at me and treated me as if I am stupid.  This never happens on the internet- which is sort of a curse- because if it did happen on the internet maybe other people on the internet would begin to understand what is going on with me.  I think it...
