    The more time I spend in society,

    the more wrong it feels. Words cannot convey what the feeling feels like. I don't know what to do anymore.

    I envy to those who write their feelings down,

    because they know how to describe it. Me, on the other hand, tried so hard to put them down the ink but i just can't seem to scrape down my feelings.

    no one cares about me.

    I am useless and have no friends. No one here can tolerate me. I'm done with everything.

    Christmas is the day I met my first true love.

    .. In 6th grade. The only person who was absolutely perfect he's long gone now and I'll probably never see him again. And since than I never felt the same way towards anyone in my life, not even close. I'd give up my life tomorrow to be with him today... Christmas is also the day...

    I'd like to express myself openly to them,

    but I can't. Each time I think of doing so, I end up doing nothing and there's barely time for now for us to be alone. So I wait, but I hope that I can get my feelings across, and hopefully bring us closer.

    Sometimes it's hard but I usually write things

    on my diary so that helps. Maybe everyone here could try and do that? For me once I start digging I usually can understand what's going on.

    Why is it that when you get hurt over

    and over again, you come to expect it? I just started a new relationship and I'm not used to being treated right. It scares me. I don't want to lose him, but I don't deserve him at all.

    But I've always been careful about who I let see that kind of stuff. And the last person used what I let her see against me.

    My stories might be short

    and choppy. I live in my head. My mind is too fast and distracting for me to express fully, deeply, how I feel, what I want, what a book means, etc.

    Sometimes I'll try to explain how I feel,

    but it always seems like something is lost in translation. Not necessarily different than how I feel, but just not complete. And that little piece is important to understand my puzzle.
