    I'm the person that doesn't belong to a

    specific friendship group. I like meeting new people and getting to know a lot of people rather than staying in my comfort zone and hanging out with the same people all the time. In high school I belonged to a clique but I learnt later on that if you rely on a specific group of...

    I wish people did get me. I have to explain myself to people and some of them I don't even like. What is so complicated about me?

    Which Is How I Prefer It.

    It's a matter of trust Its other things too, like sometimes I don't get me. But mostly it's a matter of trust.

    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...

    Different Circles Get Different Parts Of Me....

    Perhaps this is normal to some extent - we all adapt to different social situations and people - but I feel as though no one truly knows all of me and those who were closest to knowing all of me, rejected me. Even, that those who were supposed to accept all of me and love me...

    I Can'T Seem To Keep Friends Close

    I have noticed that in all my life, friends just come and go. Even when I was little I couldn't seem to keep them. Maybe I took them for granted and they caught on but, I didnt mean to. I always thought of myself as a good friend. Yet, as time when on I slowly shrank away from...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.
