    People try to understand you,

    but how can they say they understand you when you don't understand yourself?

    By many and those who do cannot say

    so without my permission (and frankly I don't know if I should give it). Due to this, it makes me afraid to step out into the world giving me a sense of hopelessness. I am trying to overcome this feeling, but it lingers.

    Maybe I Misunderstand

    My brother-in-law asked me the other day how school was going, and I had to admit that I'm failing my current classes. "On purpose?" he asks. I wondered what the hell he meant by that. Who fails on purpose. Is this something to do with my track record for quitting? "No," I said...

    Well I went to therapy today

    The only thing worse (or perhaps it is worse)

    than not being loved is being misunderstood. You say something, and it's interpreted in an entirely different way than your meaning. It can cause no end of problems. I used to have frequent dreams about being on the telephone trying to get through to someone to say something...

    Submission is not about being used,

    When I am nice to people,

    In so many ways by so many people.

    I am really a simple person who just wants to breathe-that's all. To my stepmother, I'm an evil, manipulative *****. To everyone else, I am sketchy (like a drug dealer or undercover agent); have a deep, dark secret; or something along that line....I guess I just give that vibe...

    Yeah, I joke a lot and I'm sarcastic.

    I can come off as mean but I don't mean to. I don't actually intentionally try to hurt people or be rude. People misunderstand what I'm saying most the time. I'm actually not mean and I care about people. I don't like hurting people, but I do have an attitude :p

    Because i am an introvert,

    I've been misunderstood throughout my whole life. People automatically think I'm stuck up and lack social skills, that I'm a loner and that there's something wrong with me. When the truth is, in my personal life I'm just not open to many people, I'm very quiet and reserved. I...

    I seem to always be misunderstood.

    Either by the way someone takes what I say the wrong way, or they read into it more then they should, or they already have premisconsumptions and automatically think of it differently then it should be taken. It's a sad and lonely feeling for people to not even have the...

    I'm not sure if I'm misunderstood, or misjudged. Maybe it doesn't make a difference, but this is my story: I've been quiet and shy all of my life. Despite my shyness, I remained fairly active throughout my school years, including being a cheerleader. Crazy, I know, and to this...

    You will never understand me,

    and what goes on in my twisted little world. You will never be able to understand why I am what I am, a perfect blend of angel and demon, with no ability or desire to be rid of either side. Most of you won't even bother to try.
