I Am Different

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 19,883 People

    I have this internal conflict within me,

    where I think I'm full of darkness. When my heart is actually pure and full of love. I think I'm a horrible person. I think i always had the answers inside of me. I'm in pain because my family never loved me - they probably did in their own violent and unethical ways. But I'll...

    I act older than my age

    but that's because I've always been around adults but I am a kid at heart still. I'm not like most teen girls who go gaga over a very good looking or handsome man. He's still a human being. And I don't want him to think I'm a great person to just have sex w/ or act like I love...

    Why do I get so sad over little things?

    I just got tearful because there was a spider in my bath and I accidentally killed it by filling the bathtub, I thought it would flee but it just let it happen and then I felt as though it was my fault :/ I have quite bad arachnophobia but I would never want an animal to die! I...

    Weird. I think I've learnt how to message my

    physical energy to others. It's easy to brush off but I can see it. Whenever I try to, I normally get headaches, I become sometimes twice as tired and the person I was trying to help with energy becomes louder or happy. Sometimes the person ends up becoming angrier. It's odd to...

    Different. It's a powerful word,

    Either "different" or "weird",

    I actually enjoy standing out in a crowd.

    I like to call myself unique and I look at my oddities and quirks as positive character traits. Yes, I have purple red and blue hair and I can see everyone staring but I'll just smile at them and think to myself "I like my hair and that's all that matters" I'm different. And...

    I sometimes talk to myself,

    as if I'm talking to another person. I guess it's because I've been alone (mentally) for the majority of my life, that it's almost as if I've actually become my own best friend.

    How Do I See Myself

    I'm different. In one way I'm there in others I'm so far away. The mind is the 'leader' of the body. The mind decides and sometimes the heart decides. I'm modest, some might say prim and proper. I'm also feminine, adventourous and lovable. The real me is somewhere in between...

    Anytime I look around I feel like I'm not a

    part of the world. I don't work like others, I barely have any human like emotions. What I'm saying is that I haven't found my place yet, and doubt I'll ever will. Anyone else feels this way? If you do think that you are different than most, then please explain how.
