    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.

    Me

    Yeppers, I sure do. And it is usually the ones closest to me. I don't mean to do it. A careless word or an unkept promise. Such a fool and I never seem to learn. But at least I know who I am...

    I'm Sure I Do

      When they set certain expectations for me don't include me in the actual decision-making. I'll just never be a good copy of someone else.

    Constantly

    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...

    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 =(

    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...

    I mean, why should I? makes no sense. there's tons of bad people doing bad things. I'll never accept that. I can't understand people that say the opposite on EP. such a cliché.
