    Wish I Were Different

    I'm Always The Last In Line..

    I feel like everybody is surpassing me. I feel like I am intellectually behind eveyone my age. I'm not up to par. It's sad how far behind I am .  I just feel like I should be put into a whole until the end of time.

    Loud

    I am a loud person.  At least once every few weeks I am told this usually in a condescending voice.  "you're so loud" uh "you are so rude".  I am tired of saying sorry for being loud.  I don't have a hearing problem - just loud.  Guess what I ain't changing, however I always...

    Self Attainment

    Reconsidering the tremendous weight placed on other people's opinion of me. I become more free. I switch my center of gravity around. It makes more sense this way, I become more free. Hate me and disrespect me, I beg of you to mock me infront of me and behind my back...

    I don't get embarrassed often, but it's so annoying. I embarrassed myself with my own emotions by being "overemotional." I know it's honesty, but it runs others off.
