    I wish I could just be myself.

    Say what I think, what I feel, without being judged. It's a dangerous world for those who differ from the norm, this I found out at a very young age. So I developed these protection mechanisms, and they do their job up to a point... but at the same time, they drastically lower...

    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...

    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...

    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.. ^^

    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 need to stop attracting "projects".

    For once in my life I just want to be "the project" in the relationship. To be taken of instead of having to see past my own "brokeness" in a one sided effort to make things last.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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.
