    What Is the Point of Faking?

    I understand why people act differently - I suppose I did before.  But I guess I like to throw myself out there - even a little recklessly - cuz I figure either someone will think - wow, she's cool or wow, not for me.  They'll do that, eventually, anyway....so what's...

    Walls

    As the walls close in around you, you can't breath. Your hands start to sweat, your heart feels like its going to pound out of your chest. You have nowhere to hide. The knots in the pit of your stomach tighten. Every muscle in your body aches. You stare into the eyes of your...

    Take Me Or Leave Me.

    For better or worse I don't want to be somebody else and dont pretend to be.  I am what I am, nothing more. Take me as I am or leave me.  It's that simple.

    And This Is Why...

    As much as I hate rejection (and I do) I can't bear acceptance with conditions attached.  I can't stand pretending only because I've learned the lesson of "they always find out who you are eventually" and it only hurts to pretend until they do.

    I Am, Seriously... :)

    It's as though I have to scream to be heard at times.  I don't really scream, but especially in the past I've accomplished things that never seemed to get the attention and credit I thought they deserved.  So what do I do?  I remain quiet about my activities and...

    The Art Of Acting

    If you are familiar with the Myer Briggs personality test, I resulted in being the "performer." (Take the test! type in Myer Briggs on Google, it's about 80 questions, free, and well worth it! ) My life is seemingly on a stage, and I sort of "perform" by intriguing the 5 senses...

    I Never Lie

    Nobody is perfect, and I have a lot of flaws and problems, but I never lie about them or try to hide them, I am what I am, and at least I am honest.

    I Have No Reason to Lie

      My stepmom once told me that I told people my story, painting myself as a victim for the attention. In my opinion, I tell my story since there are people who need to know that you can survive through anything and scars can't kill you as well as since I want to be...

    The Mock Turtle's Story

    `HE might bite,' Alice cautiously replied, not feeling at all anxious to have the experiment tried. `Very true,' said the Duchess: `flamingoes and mustard both bite. And the moral of that is--"Birds of a feather flock together."' `Only mustard isn't a bird,' Alice...

    Even If It Seems to Conflict...

     I am far from cut-and-dried, but who is? I am desperately curious about everything, but also believe there is a good deal of mystery that simply must be accepted. I am very trusting, but equally suspicious of motives. Deeply private, but crave intimacy. Love to read and...

    No Mask Here

    I chose to join this site so I could be who I am. Unlike in daily life where you have to mask your anger and pain to fit in. Besides, I wouldnt be able to solve my issues if I wasted my time trying to "fix" fake ones. Surely that wouldnt make me feel any better, and...

    I Am Who I Say I Am

    Some may think I am a fake and what I will tell you, you are your own person and you have your own judgement and you can believe whatever you wish.  I know who I say I am and I don't need to explain myself to anyone.

    Just Being Myself

    I am honest to a fault... I never play with others emotions. I treat others as I wish to be treated. That being said, if I don't like a person, I never pretend that I do. A person pretty much knows when I don't like them, from the start. I do not play games of manipulation or any...
