    I don't want to be seen as an easy target, at all. I don't think I have been but I will never let myself be from now on. I will never cry in front of people, I want people to believe that I'm strong, no matter how badly I've been hurt.

    Don't Assume The Loud Extroverts Are The Strong Ones....

    And the emotional and sensitive ones are weaker. I am a kind, thoughtful person who loves deeply. All my life (except from in my work with children) I feel like people have taken advantage of it. It has made me realise that my personality doesn't work in the real world as there...

    What Weak Is

    I really, really don't.... I don't like other people seeing me as weak. I just don't like the fact I'm weak, period. Being physically strong is definitely important, but really isn't what I'm the most concerned with. My inner strength is almost non-existant. Mentally, I'm not...

    Don't Mistake My Kindness For Weakness.

    I have always been kind, caring and considerate, a highly empathic person. I now recognise and embrace this as the special gift i have been given, although most times it has felt more like a curse. I can usually work people's thought's and fears out very quickly, I can often see...

    I Have Weak Moments

    But that does not make me a weak person. What is it about guys and their infinite inability to let people see them in a moment of realness without feeling uncomfortable about it?

    I wish I could prove

    that I wasn't weak. But I can't. I'd rather not be judged for my weakness. But people have seen it all. In games, sports, outdoor activities, life, I was always seen as the weakling. When I played tag as a little kid, people gave up on me and just told me not to be it...

    I'm Not F***ing Weak!

    I believe I was in the 8th grade when this was at its worst in a private school in ny ny. I hope you can take away from my experiences. On a typical day I would go to school and get taunted a lot by three of my best friends. You could say that we were the jokesters of the class...
