    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...

    I am the wind that no one sees,

    I am the ocean that the world wishes to contain, I am the star light the darkness wants to fade away, I am the diamond lost in lava chaos, I am smell of summer, I am the swiftness of the whirlwind, I am different, I am me.

    I never realy thought about until recently, but I realy am different then most other guys that I know. And, I don't realy think it's a bad thing.......I like being an individual. For starters, I'm not into sports, at all. I don't have a competitive bone in my body. I can remember...

    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.

    Not Everyone Wants To Talk Dirty. Some People Need To Learn Respect. If You Spoke To Me In Real Life, The Way You Do On The Internet I Would Punch You Out!

    I am amazed by the amount of people (mostly men) who feel that it is totally acceptable to message people they Do NOT know, on Social Networking Sites ~ like this one. OR on Message Apps ~ like KiK And they are ONLY interested in Cyber Sex or Talking Dirty. I find it utterly...

    When people decide to leave,

    I'll never be that girl that begs them to stay, If someone decide to walk out of my life, I might be sad for a while but know that I'll never chase them.. I'll just let them go.. ^^

    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.

    So growing up I have always been a extrovert.

    I'm very out going and easy to talk to. But for some reason certain people can't handle my personality. Some say I'm blunt but I just call it being honest. I always pride myself on my honesty. I don't purposely try and hurt people's feelings but I just feel that honesty is...

    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.

    I can feel emotions of others.

    I can feel their energy, when they are upset but hiding it its like I'm the only one who notices. It's developing now, all of a sudden. I believe it's due to recent meditations and methods I have used specifically designed to awaken these skills. The energy has took its toll on...

    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...

    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.
