    Set In For A Loss Already..

    I Know People Don't Want to Know Me

    It's not that it feels like people don't want to know me. I've been told so for most of my life. Either in words, or actions. When people don't want to be around you, you know. They avoid you. Or leave you out of things (and then resent it if you try to take part, which just...

    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...
