    I Am Always Misunderstood

    Sad to say I am always misunderstood in my family and friends (I think I can only count those who know or those who understand me).In any conversation that I have I usually deal with it in a manner that I think it is the proper way which means I will say what is in my mind...

    I Am Not Fit to Interact With Society

    My entire life my mom has told me that it isn't "what you say, it's how you say it." I have spent my whole life insecure and paranoid that people are talking about me or don't like me. Most of the time I am right. People always have an opinion of me and very seldom am I...

    I Have Always Been Misunderstood

    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...

    Being Misunderstood Is A Way Of Life For Me

    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...
