    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...

    I have become insanely lonely

    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...

    The Real Me?

    I sometimes think that not even my fiance, Sam knows the real me. There's just so much rage and hate pent up inside me and half the time, I want to punch someone in the face or shout at them and tell them terrible, awful things. But if you met me, I'd be perfectly pleasant and...

    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 Don't Even Know The Real Me

    I've come to accept the fact that I'm a pretty weird person, but when the question arises "Tell me about yourself" It scares me to see that I know myself so little. This goes for my friends and family. I keep a lot of things hidden from them, and even more so with myself. You...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...
