    To Get Or Not to Get

    I once met a man who really "got me", and ironically he was the same one who gave me my biggest heartache so far. So now, I wonder: Do I still want people to "get me" ? Or, Do I want to be accepted as I am, "getting me" or "not getting me...

    You Don't Know Me

    And I'm glad for that.  I don't want to reveal everything about myself.  Most people wouldn't care anyway.  I am a goddess in my own mind.  Don't mis-understand, it's not about thinking I'm all that and more.  It's about accepting my failures, enjoying...

    Not Even One.

    I have had friends. I still have some acquaintances, and 2 friends I talk to daily, one of whom knows every little thing about me. But none of them have ever really been able to "get me". I'm so various, so multi-faceted, that I am able to converse on a number of subjects, and I...

    Maybe 3????

    And maybe not even the 3! XD But, it's okay... half the time, I don't "get me" either. I'm just that complicated. =p But, I love my personality, and wouldn't trade it in for the world. I admit it, when I was younger, I hated that I was so unique and different from...

    Not At All.

    And This Is My Fault Too

    I don't have a lot of people that 'get me'.  It's not because I am some complex, super intricate incredible mind.  That's not it at all - I don't let them get to really know me, because I don't trust anyone enough. I am a complete horrid judge of...

    To Define Myself

    I am more complex than I appear yet more simple than the breadth of my stories can cover. For this reason amid others, there are plenty of people who don't 'get me'. Those who do are cut from an exquisite, rare and priceless cloth. I find it difficult to explain myself and...

    The logo for this group is rather sad.  Depressing even.  I'm sure the first story I wrote when I joined the group fit with that tone.  But I feel like writing the other side of the story now. Don't you think it's true that none of us have a lot of people who...

    Different Circles Get Different Parts Of Me....

    Probably Only Two

    There are probably only two people who get me and they don't know everything. One of them doesn't approve of most of what I do so it takes me a while to tell her stuff. She judges but has pretty much decided that I'm a lost cause so she doesn't say anything. The other person is a...

    I Don't Have Anyone Who Actually "Gets Me", Ya Know?

    It is my fault to an extent but maybe some day there will actually be some one who will stop and look thinking "Wow.. I want to get to this woman" and genuinely mean it. I have to admit I'm not the easiest person in the world to get to know.

    Get Over Myself?
