    People always think the worse of me,

    I alway seem to be seen as the cliche school blonde. I was forced into cheerleading, which p!sses me off. All the girls that follow me about seem to think I am a b!tch like them,they pick on everyone who is not like them. I always try to stand up to them, sadly gets me into...

    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...

    A Poorly Written Question

    I wrote a question today, but I didn't get my point across. People read into my question things that weren't there and didn't read some things that WERE there. I hate when that happens, but clearly I didn't do an adequate job of explaining myself. :( Eventually I just deleted...

    You touch me and my charred broken skin crawls.

    You speak to me and like broken glass your voice falls. Tender care to make me heal, But I look at you and hate is all I feel. Pain, torment and misery my constant steady friends, My grimace and wince and twitch are the get well cards they send. You come like clockwork and grin...

    I am not angry. It's just how my facial show.

    When I am sad or upset, My facial expression, without me able to control, will become dark and seem like I am angry. But in fact I am not always angry. That's just my way to hold back my tears to come out when people around. And it is sadder to be misunderstood. I never tell...

    I feel misunderstood a lot

    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.

    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.

    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...

    Constantly Called Conceited When I'm Not

    Ever since I was in college, I've been perceived as conceited or stuck up by people. In fact, I've been bullied for being that girl who think she's so hot or think she's so cute. I really think I'm average looking and I'm terribly shy. I think my shyness comes off as arrogance...
