I Am Misunderstood

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,158 People

    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.

    Stuck-up Snobby *#@&*

    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...

    Let's Get This Straight

    Alright, first things first. I'm not some sniveling, fake, pathetic person who posts fake sob stories worthy to made into a movie starring Meryll Streep for attention. This is what happened to me. I'm not looking for sympathy; I just know I don't have to protect my rapist...

    I am completely and utterly misunderstood.

    It's a horrible lonely feeling you get, when you feel like no one gets you. Apparently a couple of my disorders are: ADHD- Inattentive type Generalized Anxiety Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Dysthymia And symptoms of Social Anxiety

    I'm not too good at putting my ideas in a form

    people understand it, and sometimes even the more innocent of things I try to say sound creepy and weird.

    Recently, my life has become depressing.

    ..once again. There are never really any happy times any more. No matter what I do. I've been doing my hardest to keep my positive thinking up, and I've tried changing as much negativity that I can, but it is all so hopeless. My friends don't help, my family always seems too busy...

    Sometimes my sociopathic tone is taken

    as flirting by normal people. I'm not trying to flirt honestly, im just trying to charm my way in so i can see what's really on your mind. It's amazing how many people rudely lie on a daily basis

    I play devil's advocate a lot

    because I hate when people are one sided about issues and opinions but it makes me come off as snarky or like I am attacking them.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    and like no one truly gets me. When I look at someone or act a certain way I want them to automatically know that I'm not ok without even asking. Not even saying a word just knowing what to do or say.

    People often tell you to be happy

    and they'll tell you what should make you happy. I hate the latter. Everyone will tell what's good for you. "Do this to get that." The problem is "that" never comes and you're only stuck with "this". You try to do something and get something, but everyone will stop you; they'll...
