I Don't Have a Lot of People Who "Get Me"

    In My Own World

    I always knew I was a bit different from everyone else. Yes, everybody is different from one another because we are all different people. But I was different in a different way. Maybe awkward is the right word. Let me explain. I thrive in the world of ideas. One idea will strike...

    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...

    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...

    Paranoid Schizophrenia

    Yes, that is what I have. How I got it I do not know for sure. I look normal and sometimes talk normal, but inside I am not. Things that people take for granted can be difficult and frustrating for me. I can be fine one minute and not the next. I don't like being like this, I...

    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...

    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.

    Maybe You Only Need One

    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...

    I never thought about it much. Which in itself is odd, I'm always thinking and overthinkingg just about everything. And lately I've had tme to ponder somethings about myself. I guess there are maybe two or three people who "get me". I'm working on improving that.. at...

    I thought about it today

    and then realized why i don't like to share my feeling with others so there are some reasons why i don't. 1. I don't like to share my feelings to my family members because they get so worried whenever i do that. That makes me really scared or annoyed. 2. My parents have set...

    Get Over Myself?

    A lot of people around me tell me to "get over myself". They don't sympathise, empathise or even care. I am too "weird". Thank Gods for the good people in my EP circle, if only you were physically closer. I love y'all.

    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...

    To Define Myself
