    Set In For A Loss Already..

    Ive usually been the happy yet, quiet type of person. Growing up, I became angry. I am happy at times, but I remind myself how alone and ignored I am and the feeling makes me feel immature. I think its so pathetic that people only look on the surface as apposed to looking deep...

    I Know People Don't Want to Know Me

    Only If I'm Happy

    People only wanna know me if I'm happy, can only deal with me if I'm positive. They only want to know me if i think the most dire of situations will work out, theirs or mine; they only want to know me if i can see the world through the same rose colored glasses they do...

    They Can't Handle It

    sometimes i feel that the people in real life don't want to know the real me. they just want the me that they currently see because the real me would be much too different. i don't think people can handle the real honest truth, everyone just makes  up their own truths that...
