    Self-expression is tricky--easy at times,

    but ultimately difficult. Especially when it is needed most.  For me, I can express myself well through my physical appearance hands down, but what I really want is to allow myself to shine through my writing.I find it most difficult to write.  Many things run in and out of...

    I am a hairdresser, my job requires me to talk.

    Most of the time I use the wrong words, it comes out sounding wrong, or I stutter so badly. My face gets beet red, and I just feel like an idiot.

    I guess it is because I am really shy, this place helps, it is much easier to express onesself anonymously. I often get left with the feeling that people havent grasped what I am trying to say, or I dont say anything at all.

    A lot of you know that I have been through a lot

    and have been waiting a long time for a man who said he'd save me from my darkest days. Well he came and he did have me in the sunshine but now it's raining again... No, it's a huge storm! Two years in and that man has broken my heart! I found him on dating sites from his email...

    I'm Working On It

    I love to write but have trouble getting my thoughts out. It's mostly because of a learning disability I have. For the most part I can talk out what I want to express, but I often get it garbled and confused. Human language, bah. But it's nice to come here and hang out and write...

    I Feel Like I Should Be Mute.

    Most of what I say is forced out garbage meant to only further conversation and get the person to like me. That mode just turns on automatically. And it's no wonder it doesn't work. It works in the short term maybe, but I don't make any real friends talking the way I do. I went...

    I'm Always Like That

    It makes me sound rather obtuse. Or mayhap I am thick and just don't realise it. At least the internet often affords me the benefit of time to think over what I want to say and how I wish to express it. And even then, I can still find it hard. It seems that the older I get, the...

    I Suck At This.

    THAT is the understatement of the century. I totally absolutely SUCK at expressing myself well. Heck, i can't even tell my mom how much i love her, show my friends i care or tell my boyfriend i adore him. I have been like this since forever. It's frustrating to see myself...

    Of Course I Am A Brat

    Today I bitched a little on facebook and as a result some girl went off on me and unfriended me. Never really talked to the girl, knew her from high school, saw her on campus every now and then, no big deal. But the first words of her rant were "You are a brat". Of course I am...

    I think I've finally figured out the reason

    for this. Thinking back, whenever I tried to express an opinion to my family, show concern for something, or tried to explain why I felt insulted over something, I find that I've often been criticized for them. When I tried telling them that what they were saying about someone...

    What Happens When I Try...

    To express myself to you, to show you that I'm actually listening and trying to help, but all that comes out is a silence so loud yet telling you nothing at all, but if you looked in my eyes and truly tried to see, you would know that I am trying to tell you how much I care, you...

    It depends on the context, but I am usually at a loss for words in sticky situations. I hate that people take my silence as indifference, when nothing could be further from the truth. Sometimes I literally just don't know what to say, and rather than word vomit, I like to digest...

    Expressing Myself Is Hard

    I can't even express myself to me. I have so many emotions and thoughts waiting to burst out, but they come out all scattered...if that makes sense. Its as if I am reliving my childhood of not being allowed to express myself, except this time I really have trouble expressing...

    My friend (who I have some history with) wants

    to talk about something personal. I would've been somewhat okay with this, until he told me he wants to speak in person. I am really not looking forward to this. I hate having these conversations in person, especially if the issue at hand involves me. I feel so pressured to...

    I feel like if I try to be myself around people

    I'll be judged. So I tend to just be really shy and go by unnoticed.

    It's Like Being Mute

    Imagine being able to speak freely about anything until someone asks you how you feel about something, then having your brain completely shut down and losing the ability to use words and instead just staring blankly at someone wanting to communicate but forgetting the words...

    I'll never be the one for you. You can do so much better, and I want you to have the best. It's enough like this, to just watch from the shadows and when the tears fall I'll have my shoulder ready for you to cry on. So close and yet so far. I never understood that until you came...

    Eternally Misunderstood

    A pen and paper were my best friends as a child.  As time went by pen and paper turned into monitor and keyboard.  Without these tools I would have never known the true me nor would anyone else. Even prior to the RSD I had difficulty expressing my feelings.  As a...
