    Suppressed Myself For Too Long

    I always felt like I was someone else and so I tried to be that person.  I was someone I didn't know around my friends, even the ones I tried to be myself with.  I either didn't talk or talked too much. I tried to be myself, but I wasn't sure who that was, so I made it...

    What You See Is Not What You Get.

    I am a hypocrite. I am bored. I get excited easily. I laugh at everything. I am a great listener. I do not judge anyone.... ever. (not always a good thing.) I have a lot of great friends. I am often alone. I am pretty. I have low confidence. I am a writer. I love to read. I love...

    I Really Don't.

    It has taken me my entire life to realize, that I probably never will, and that is a bit of a let down. But I'll work with that I have.

    It feels like there is something fundamental I'm missing. You can't see the whole picture, even if it's only one, insignificant piece missing. It's very frustrating.
