    Why Just Why

    I don't understand why guys say they want a good woman but when they have a good woman who wants to be there for him the guy wants someone else. Im too old to pretend to not care in your face. Id rather walk away.

    Do we keep a part of ourselves hidden

    for fear of rejection and getting hurt? Why is it so hard to just put myself out there for all to see? Naked and vulnerable. Even here on EP being anonymous ...what will my new friends think? I don't really know you so it shouldn't matter right? But it does...it does to me. I...

    No one knows, but I'm very insecure.

    Looking at me you wouldn't be able to tell, I'm a cheerleader, I'm usually surrounded by people but when I'm not I'm content with being alone, a lot of people know me.. But no one really knows me. I'm afraid.. I'm afraid of bring alone, not just standing by myself or going...

    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...

    Nobody Can See The Pain Behind My Smile

    I grew up in a very abusive household. I mean every bad thing a child could go threw I went threw. I learned how to smile at everything. Now I don't know how not to smile at everything. People think im happy they don't see the pain they don't see me

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    but I make up stories to tell my "friends" so they think I have a life. I put friends in quotes because none of my friends are completely true; most of them are selfish, fake, and flakey. I am a massive klepto, and as I become more alone I resort to stealing as an outlet. I am...

    My husband always pretends to want to 'get to
