    A Stranger

    I don't know myself, maybe thats why my relationships don't last. And the dudes I end up with turn out wrong in the end. Because how could you have a relationship when you don't know yourself. You don't know what you want from a relationship, you don't know your taste, whose good...

    After a recent break up I find myself looking

    Ask The Others

    Yes, if you want to know me they know better! I can be a person with different personalities without pretending. I can be mean, kind, considerate, cold, furious, shy, bold and the contradictions go on. This unusual mixture of personalities confuses me: I don't know what I want, I...

    I Thought I Knew...

    I was arrogantly sure I knew myself well much of my life. But after throwing myself again and again into weird situations, addicted to living in fantasy and almost destroying the life I'd created, destroying my family, plunged into depression, then wildly sex addicted, then...

    I'm Bored. I'm Just Bored.

    Time Wasted.

    For the greater portion of my life, (which is a startling amount considering I'm merely 16) I spent so much time becoming who my friends were that I don't know the person I've become. I'm not me, I'm just shattered pieces of the people I surround myself with; Broken fragments...

    I feel like I have spent the 20 years I've been

    alive trying to do things that other people would like and appreciate and that makes me feel like I don't know anything about myself. I feel like I don't know the things that I actually like and want to do. Does anyone else have this problem? How do you try to reverse that?
