    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.

    Everything I state is something

    that I believe is true; I can't be sure about anything. I'm just expressing how I feel about certain things until now. On this post I will try to give a description of what depression means for me, hoping that someone will relate. I might only be 17, got a really small glimpse...

    School is just another meeting place

    for all kids my age. And we get an education together. Girls are slutty. Boys are cocky. Some are nerds. Some are shy. I don't match anything. I'm me. Me is different. I like adventure. Like in my previously posted experience, like to regularly run-away. I like walks in the...

    My husband says I'm crazy.

    In college there was an impossibly handsome guy

    named Jacob. We went to a huge college , a myriad of people who belonged in different groups like goths, emos, jocks, athletes. And then tehre was me. I didn't really fit into any category. " You're different" Jacob told me. I smiled and shrugged it off. I had been " different...

    My point of view… All my life I thought I

    was different. I just never could fit in in any groups. And till this day I think I still don’t, so I was the outsider awkward girl, with her head stuck in books. I remember praying to be like others, and my mom saying; you are different with a unique heart. Sometimes I...

    I like sexting and sending bad pics.

    There, I said it. I know it's morally wrong and I know I'm abusing my body, however I enjoy the attention and satisfaction of men commenting on my personal parts. I really hope God can forgive me. I don't know where my love for sexting came from. Possibly web chat rooms? I...

    It is nearly impossible

    for me to explain the things I do during the night. During the day, you can see me in the usual clothing, pieces that reflect my boredom and neutral feeling towards fashion. Why waste colors on clothing? I never look like how I feel. I'm confined to three emotions outside the...

    I lived in Spain during my teens,

    and adopted their culture. Later I lived in two other countries, and that makes me more colourful than the average Brit, or 'quirky'. It's natural, as my background experiences were different to most other peoples'.

    I feel so different from many people

    and I haven't yet found someone who really gets me and my personality. I am too honest and straightforward, I like to tell it as it is. Most people don't appreciate that, but I don't mind it though. I have a great sense of humor, sometimes all I wanna do is laugh and goof around...

    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...

    It's hard to be different.

    I want to be part of a group of people who are like me, but I haven't even figured out what's so different about me, yet! It seems like I always feel different and it bothers me greatly.

    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.

    being different from other people is ok

    because you gain more power then others of the different ways that you are different. Also by being different gives you a lot more courage then before you were maybe normal or who you were before you changed to become different.

    I'm different. I know that ... I've always known it.  I'd say I'm pretty un-pin-downable ... if that's word.  Well, I just made it one. I can be reckless, spontaneous ... irresponsible sometimes.  Then conversely I can be self-controlled, reliable and very organised. I'm a...
