    The Curse

    Having read a lot about what you guys have said already, I must admit, Im almost in the same boat as a lot of you here. I really cant seem to figure it out if its people seeking some hidden meaning in what Im saying, my body language or just the fact that Im not from this country...

    The Real Me.

    I have been misunderstood here so many times.  I am a very passionate person.  I use expressive language when I am excited or angry.  Not everyone can appreciate this about me, I understand that.  I speak exactly what is on my mind, which...

    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...

    Even By My Mom

    I don't know what's so hard about talking. It's like, I'm upset, and for the first time in AGES I decide to talk to my mom. I just wanted to talk. But what does she do? Offers to take me to Wal-Mart. Not to go shopping. Just because she thought I might want to get out of...

    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 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 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...

    ...

    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 say one thing knowing exactly what I mean by

    it but then after the other person responds and says ?, how, what. I get sad because I feel like I upset someone. Like right now I can even explain it in a way that could make sense to anyone unless they know me extremely well.

    Many Believe I'm Happy

    Because of my mask, everyone I know believes I'm happy. That's what my fake side thinks what I should be but my real side comes when I'm alone.

    I seem to have a tone of voice

    that confuses people. It makes them think I'm angry when I'm actually not. For example, they might ask, "Did you put in that stores order?", to which I reply, "No, not yet". Their response indicates they think I'm angry. "Oh OK. I was only asking!" My reply to them was fairly...

    Technique to Try: Softened Startups

    I'm super literal, and as such, I don't say a lot of nonsense that I tend to consider unnecessary, I just speak. Unless of course I need to give someone some sort of a criticism, then I do try to soften things, so I don't hurt anyone's feelings; or I try to bring up another...

    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...

    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...
