    It doesn't matter how much you tell me im not,

    I will still think I am. I like to give a hundred percent at everything. Rather it be something easy like watching a television series. Or having a conversation. I always tell myself that, oh well you could have done better, you should have done this, that, then, now, next week...

    There's this point you reach

    when it gets to be too hard and you wonder, "What's the point?" Trudging through the same bullshit day after day doesn't make me stronger or better. It makes me a sucker. That I fell for the lie about "it gets better". I totally thought it would. What an idiot. It doesn't get...

    Everything I Do

    I always feel like I bother people. It's like i'm constantly a roadblock in their way. I feel like I annoy them because I'm so quiet. Or they don't like the way I dress or wear my hair. I think it bothers them. I don't know why and I'm kind of worried. I feel like I can't be...

    I Know I Am

    but there isn't anything I can do other than to try to be less annoying tomorrow.  I mean, just because you annoy the hell outta me doesn't mean I should do the same to you, right?

    Totally Me.

    My social skills suck!  I seem to be too honest and I forget that most people have a shell you have to work through until you get to that 'honest' phase of a relationship.   I treat people like I want them to treat me; like we were old friends even though we just...

    Working On Change

    I care about people so much that I make it a point to keep quiet about my own troubles, even if I am in serious need of comfort, advice and love. I know that people have so much on their plates and yes it would make them feel better to help me (because helping me helps them) but...

    In The End, I'm Left To Feel All Alone...

    I always worried about this. Even when I really needed someone to talk to, thought like this would prevented me from going to any of my friends. In the end, I would feel like I'm completely alone and nobody cared about me.

    Always Self-Conscious.

    This is largely a reason why I do not have friends, aside from the fact that I am not satisfied with my life right now. But, I always feel like a bother. So, I refuse to first contact anyone. If a person doesn't contact me, we simply don't speak. This applies to even my...

    It just seems like i'm a burden.

    Either I hurt people or I make them upset. I don't know what to do anymore. I wonder how they would feel if I just didnt exist.

    It's Natural For Me

    I always think I'm bothering someone when I try to talk with them. It happens, so it adds to my lack of social behavior quite a bit. But I live on. People talk to me on occasion, so that lets me socialize to some degree.

    I Usually Am.

    I usually feel like I'm bothering others.  This makes a lot of my friends, and boyfriend, mad because they wonder why I am not more outgoing.  Unforunately, I have a crappy family and pretty much all of them, immediate and extended, are rude to me and make me...

    that's one of many parts of the reason I hate sharing my feelings. I tend to feel guilty about taking up someone else's time when I should just stop being lazy and figure out how to solve my own problems. Although on the flip side, I'm one to drop everything and help a...

      Yes I feel like everyone's head shrink but if I say 2 wrds about me they suddenly vanish.                   Peace is seeing a sunrise or sunset and knowing who to thank.

    Shy + Bothering Others

    I am not good at making new friends. It is them who have to come to me, or otherwise I stay alone. One of my friends once said to me: "Just try to go to them and say hello, and start talking!". Yeah well, for her it is so natural, but for me it isn't. I'm shy, and if I go to talk...
