I Don't Know How to Explain Myself

when people ask me "tell me about yourself" 257 People

    Just Not Yet Experienced Enough.

    I wish I could say I was brough up in a family where, "children should be seen and not heard", they would possibly have the same issue as myself, to varying degrees. Nope.  It was just me who was the unworthy one to have any thoughts, opinions, wants, needs or...

    I don't take compliments easily.

    If I can do something I assume it's easy for everyone. Three women asked me to get a six pack of ginger ale from the very back of the rack. I'm very tall and was the only one able to reach it, they thanked me and I felt weird about it. The pretty cashier smiled at me and I...

    I look at the sunrise

    and inwardly smile. I know it's always going to be there for me. I look at the moon and worry. I don't know why I get so scared at night. I can feel the tiny imperfections on the table. It's part of my life. I've made some horrible decisions. The coffee smells so good. I ride...

    I always have a hard time putting my thoughts

    into words. I never thought it'd be so hard. It happens to me with everyone, even my closest friends and family. I guess sometimes, words are just not enough.

    Sometimes I think being gay is a curse.

    I wonder if his friends or whomever he's told about me would've viewed me differently had I been straight. I don't think he truly understands what it means to like someone unconditionally. I want to help him but I can't FORCE him to help himself. He's probably still too young to...
