    Sometimes I feel like lots of people fail to

    realize to see me. For most of people around I'm a funny , cool and inteligent guy who studyes a lot and has a part-time job. I can be sad or having a bad moment but people will only think I'm a bit tired or a bit bitchy if I'm really pissed off but not realize that I've been...

    When I was 11 my older cousin James decided to

    have a sleep over at his house. It was going to be me, James,(btw James is 17) and James little brother Scott.at first it seemed like fun because James and Scott were playing videos games and other boy things that make my head go blank. And after a couple hours my older cousin...

    Just my opinion, but I don't think most of us

    know who we really are. We think we can hit it pretty close based on our perceptions and the perceptions of those close to us, but as far as knowing ourselves intimately....I think that's more rare than we are sometimes led to believe.... I think the real objective is just to...

    The only people who knows the real me are my

    parents and relatives. I am full of surprises online. Yes, I am going to post something that some people might think WOW or hate it. Frankly I don't care.

    Maybe my best friend.

    . But I don't even know the real me so I doubt he does... But if anyone does its definitely him. He probably knows me more then I know myself.

    For 40 some odd years no one has known

    who I really am. I show bits and pieces to different people but no one has ever been shown the whole picture. I have been hurt by sharing parts of me and never ever thought I would entrust someone with all of me. . Till I met someone who in many respects is a mirror to myself...

    I am sharing about myself a lot.

    But I have no intention to reveal my identity. If you are the same way, it would be great to share each other's life's details without revealing our identities. It would be so liberating.

    Find Me.

    There are so many masks I wear just to cover what I don't want you to know. I have a mask to tell you that I'm ok even when my heart is starting to freeze in pain. I have a mask to show laughter even when what you just said hurt me so bad that I feel like crying. I have a mask to...

    My husband always pretends to want to 'get to

    know me' but if I ever of share things he simply won't recall a single thing I said later. It's like we always stand on the same spot in our relationship, whereas I feel the connection should deepen as the years pass by.

    Some Have Come Close...

    A few have gotten really close. Those who have been closest to Me have gotten the most broad look at who I am, what I'm about, and what I'm into. But, since life keeps changing, and so do I, I can't say that anyone really fully knows Me. I've not had anyone in My life long...

    Throughout my years on earth,

    I've worn so many masks sometimes I don't remember what my real personality is. Maybe all of them are me? Maybe none of them are me? I guess I'll never figure that out.

    Everyone brings out a different side of me.

    Whenever I try to tell someone about the real me, I tend to not mention somethings because they can only see that side. I don't know why I'm like that, it just happens.

    Me But Not Me

    I am a very logical person, and also I can and want to be very random at times. I don't like politics or speaking about religion because its pointless to me. It starts arguments like no other topics. Music has a lot of control over my life and my emotions it helps me in many ways...

    I feel like this had become a theme in my life.

    I genuinely want to be known and loved for who I am, but I often fear getting too close to people. I don't have many friends, and the ones I do have don't know me as well as I wish they did. I just want more open, honest relationships so I can **** up and actually have someone...

    Every time I try and be me everyone I know

    tells me I'm either sick or depressed. I'm so glad to be moving across the country so I can start all over with a new group of people. Here's my chance and I'm not letting it pass me by.

    ive never met anyone in real life

    who understands the real me!! i have met people on line before who "apparently" have come pretty close to understanding the real me, and i say "apparently" because you never know who you are talking to on line, so many fake people hiding behind fake profiles and so on!!

    Changing, For Better Or For Worse.

    Nobody knows who I really am. I am in a constant state of metamorphoses, flitting from one personality to the next to please whomever I'm with at the moment. I'm done with it. I'm done with pleasing everyone else. I just want to be myself, and **** them if they don't like me. I'm...

    I think they would see how damaged I am instead

    of thinking how privileged I am because my family is wealthy. Money doesn't mean ****. I would spend all the money in the world to erase some of my memory's I have, just so I can live a normal life... Whatever that is.
