    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...

    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.

    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...
