    Senpai Made The Sea

    He was 15. I was 13. I called it "love." But it was lust. He felt it too. I lost it. He did not. I said "no." He said "yes." And so...a dragon lost the war. I became the sea. No one could understand me, and my pain. So I became distant. No one can tame me. No one can own me. For...

    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 know, I know... plenty of people say they are

    different. In my experience, few actually are in the sense that everyone I've come into contact with still has strong affinity with others in this world. You can be a 'rare' breed of human, sure, but there are likely many others like you in the world, others you can connect to...

    Since the second grade,

    I knew I was different. But until this week, I never knew why people either hated me, avoided me, or both. I realized that they probably knew all along. I suppose when I found out about reality, I did not want to live in it. So I made my own world up in my head without even...

    ...in a bad way. Over the past couple of weeks,

    I have come to the realization that I literally have no friends, and no one really likes me. People use me and then move on. Ever since childhood, I've had "Friends" who weren't really friends. Latest blow came to me when I found out my cousins had made a whatsapp group and had...

    Unlike most guys I have only one guy friend.

    All my friends are girls and it is hard when I try to make guys my friend. They just don't like meXP I also don't know why they ask me for advice or comfort. I am just different I guess.
