    I Try To Hide It Mostly!

    I really don't like to show many emotions other than happiness. My personality is a bit addictive and reflective so I am charged with the task of staying as happy as I can always!

    The Truth Is...

    ...there is no hiding! I can't stand it! I hate being upset. Everyone knows it! More than often I'm being abused because I'm upset about something. It's an anxiety and psychotic hell with real live demons! Anyways happy new day to you. :) *Wants to shoot the smiley*.

    Misery Does Not Like Company....Or Does It?

    I tend to keep to myself when I'm upset. I so this for two reasons. 1. I love my friends. When they are upset, it upsets me. I tend to carry their pain with me somehow. I don't want them to feel my sadness. In this case, misery does not love company. I'd rather not drag anybody...

    I can't talk about myself without being prompted. I do horrible on dates because I don't know what to say and don't know what to ask. So I almost never get asked on a second date.
