    I'm Sure I Do

    Disappoint the Self Appointed...

    I only disappoint those who expect something from me. The ones who expect my reality to match theirs most of the time. It doesn't and it never will. The ones who try to lead me out of the dark, instead of hold my hand as I go through it. Lose your expectations and see the real...

    Sadly...

    Sadly I think I disappoint way too many people. i let others down who believe in me, and its not like I try to. But it just happens. I wish it wouldn't because for once I want to make someone proud instead of dissapointing them =(

    Teachers, parents, friends, would-be friends and sometimes myself.   I make promises that I don't fulfill.  At times whilst knowing it which makes it even worse.  For example, today I had arranged to go to Pride London with a couple of people who are mad enough...

    Downer

    It seems that it is the only thing I am good at. I not only let my loved ones down, but also feel disappointed in myself.

    I get so disappointed and it makes me want to cry. It's so easy to get my hopes up, and I end up hating myself for letting that happen.
