    Months and Months For the Truth...

    I really don't like telling people, even family, about my own life. I like to have things to myself and much rather prefer people not knowing my whole life story. It took me 2 months to tell my parents about my [ex]boyfriend and after it was over it took me a month to tell them...

    I keep a lot of secrets from everyone.

    Even some of my "friends" (I feel like they don't like me anymore) and family. If one of them even found out 1 secret, might as well throw a bomb at us cause our relationship will explode.

    More In My "real Life" Than My Online One.

    Here, while I have chosen not to be anonymous...I am comfortable being honest about...well, everything. I seem like a completely different person face-to-face than I am online. I suppose in my everyday life, I just want to pass by unnoticed. I hide. I'm the shy girl who...
