    If I Loved You

    I wanted to write about an intense love so I dug deep and came up with this - If I loved you . . . . You would know that you are loved. You would never need to question it. You would feel the true emotion of intense love. The fire that burns within you would be released. You...

    Sometimes I wonder am I "too intense"

    or has the world basically began a mass emotional detachment. Are people too walled up inside to the point that giving a damn is scary to them? I sometimes question my detachment when others come on too strong towards me and I shy away. What has this world become if emotions and...

    I'm Too Deep....Even For Myself.

    Whatever I do, I do it deeply. Emotions are things that I know all too well about. I'm very intense, and sometimes I bring others into my intense world. Some can handle it, while others tend to cower. Some are still around, while others have retreated back into their plain...

    Emotionally Intense

    I am an emotionally intense person that is surrounded by emotionally reserved people.  I feel stifled being around such people.  I try to contain myself so as to not overwhelm them but at the end of the day I feel drained.  I love life.  I am enthusiastic about it.  Why...

    If you've read any of my experiences,

    you'll probably know I have a bit of an issue with controlling my other personalities. And today, I had a bit of an incident... We were in photo class, me and my two friends Christiana and Tyler. I'm not SUPER close to them but Christiana knows about my alters. Tyler didn't...

    I Wish

    I truly wish I could tell you something wonderful. I wish I could evoke a feeling from inside of you that is life changing and relevant. I wish I could talk to you, without feeling like I am pretending. I wish I had a stimulating thought, to provoke stellar conversation. I wish...

    Finding Intensity In The Ordinary Life.

    Whatever I do in life has to be intense or I feel bored/depressed. Sometimes I'd like to stop caring about having a "socially acceptable" behaviour so I could live intensely anytime/anywhere ! For example I'd like to try walking backward instead of forward, but I'm still too...

    Too Much Of Anything

    I have been told multiple times that a friendship with me can never be simple. I keep pondering this all the time. I know it is true, because several people have decided to step out of my life for this reason. I think it is because I feel. I feel for everyone with a story...

    Yer especially when they ask me,

    so what's changed in your life. And I kindly respond I don't eat meat, no dairy, no egg. Only natural food and I'm sorted! Soon as they let me finish, oh what body language never lies and says more that what a jealous person, doesn't want to say invade you retaliate.

    I Was His Perfect Storm

    ...just like the movie... in the end, my intense love killed his love. I was so into him, I couldn't get enough of him. I wanted to hear from him. I adored the sound of his voice. I felt like time on the phone was a little bit of time together. I got upset sometimes when he said...

    Intense Sometimes, Psychotic Only The Once

    Prior to my psychosis I had perceived myself as quiet, introverted and easy going. Most people saw me as rather shy. I was definately submissive in my relationships with family and spouse. I am no longer shy but assertive. I am still quiet at times, introverted when I am not...

    People expect me to be honest.

    And then when I am they run away. You don't tell some stranger,"I see how people die, I'm followed by a cloaked figure, and I want to skin myself alive." I scare people. I don't know why I bother to make friends. I'm just gonna look how I feel on the inside. Then maybe...

    Loving Too Intensely - Is It Possible?

    When someone invites me into their life and I invite them into mine, I assume that the friendship is given from that point on. Or if it is love, that there is an unstated agreement that we'll take it further. When I love, I love with all that I am. I want that person to be...

    My personality matches my appearance.

    Dark eyes, dark and jagged hair, a soft light olive tan. I'm very cerebral and controlling. I seem arrogant, more so that I am so socially detached and aloof. Oh, and my sarcasm is cruel for some. I let enough out to seem charming or on the complete opposite self- obsessed. It...

    Headstrong Or Driven?

    I Either Don't Engage At All Or I Go Overboard.

    I will wither be too scared to speak to someone (Especially if another person is standing near them) Or i will be overly touchy and my actions are way too often misunderstood as flirting. I have next to no friends because people can't handle it. I try to change but it's hard.

    I Scare People

    Sometimes I scare people right away, usually I just unsettle them, but I try to keep myself hidden in places like work and in stores. I am unsettling to some people, ironically enough for this group, when they look in my eyes. My eyes are said to me my most noticable, most unique...

    Some Things Don't Change

    Yesterday I met someone whom I had not seen for more than half my life. After a few minutes of conversation he went quiet then said, "So you're still just as intense then?" I guess that when we are the intense ones, we don't notice so easily how blatant our intensity is. My...

    I Can Be Too Honest

    Like the title said, I can be way to honest, I say what I think and that's usually pretty cold and straight. No dancing around the truth I always say, but it's way too intense for some people, they hate it and stop talking to me. It's hard to find people who can bear the truth...
