I Come With Fine Print

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 9,550 People

    Exactly! For the longest time I thought of

    myself as a person with no fine print - all very easy to understand, and really, pretty outspoken and plain about what I thought, liked and disliked, wanted and didn't want. Guess what... yes, you guessed it, I was a bit more complicate than I thought, and I had fine print. So...

    Reams of It

    This is exactly why it's so hard for me to find a real friend, and why it's such a shame that the few I've got are scattered across the country. This is also why I don't like having "acquaintances" or casual friends. Unless someone is a kindred spirit, I have a tough...

    so fine that even i can't read all of it! i know part of it says something about "is uneasy with physical contact". and here's a line that says "memory patchy at best" i'll have to think more about what the rest of it might be. if you can make it out...

    I come with a painful past

    and a broken family twice over. I'm suspicious if you're nice and constantly thinking "this must be my mother's way of trying to take care of me"

    Shouldn't We All?

    I think that when we meet someone for the first time we make a judgement and then when they do something that disagrees with that initial judgement we ignore it and thus build an image in our minds of who that person is.  I believe that this is why a lot of relationships...

    that the other person doesn't bother to read. That's why the divorce rate is so high.

    I was listening to a podcast today.

    This guy did some research on how play time as a child or the lack thereof affected our brains. Essentially, lack of play time bred f'd up people. Is that why I am the way that I am? Why I feel almost psychopathic. How I can mimic empathy and care so well that I almost believe...

    Warning: This girl is an emotional time bomb,

    f*** with her feelings and your dead to her. She ruins everything, has the worst luck, terrible past, has almost died, attempted to kill herself. So if I were you I'd run away faster than light.
