    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...

    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...

    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'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.

    People need realness, reality. People can sense when someone is being pretentious or fake. It's because you feel it; you see it in someone's body language.
