    I'm getting older and feeling resentful I was

    never encouraged to be myself, speak my mind, be confident, etc when I was young. Now I have a hard time dealing with low self esteem and communicating with people. I feel like I'm too dysfunctionally damaged to ever be normal.

    Tomorrow is going to be tough.

    I'm scared. Terrified. Utterly bare with no armor. When did I lose it? Did I ever have one to begin with? How do explain myself. How do I confess that I am scared every single time that I enter the school building? What if they don't believe me and just dismiss my situation? I...

    Seriously, I've been having this weird feeling,

    like when you're scared, or excited. That pressure is builded up in my chest and don't know why is that. I have to constantly take deep breaths, and I can feel my heart beat stronger, and stronger. Is it bad? Some please tell me if it's bad??!?!?!

    I never was good with words.

    When something is hurting me, I can't talk. I can't explain. It's not like I don't want to, but it's almost like I can't find the right words to match my feelings and my thoughts. Often, I get frustrated just trying to explain myself. I'm a good artist, and I draw when I'm...

    As Clearly As I Sometimes Wish I Could

       Sometimes I worry about how I'm coming off. Am I too uppity? Too inconsistent? Can people understand where I'm coming from? Am I explaining this right? It gets to the point where I just stop talking because I've worried myself to the point of being completely...

    I don't know how to tell people how I feel

    about them. I wish I could tell this person I'm sorry that I had hurt them. I also want to tell another person that I like them. I wish I could tell them how I truly feel about her.

    Everything is kept bottled up inside
