    i don't feel like sharing everything to anybody.

    even my best friend doesn't know who i really am. i am very secretive. i don't blurt **** out so easily to get everyone's attention. i do share a little bit of myself but not all of it.

    But no one really knows who I really am.

    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...

    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...

    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 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.

    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.

    i know for a fact no one really knows me.

    i spend a lot of time on my own. people will assume things about you if they see you or know a little about you. but no one really knows anyone we just know ourselves and sometimes i guess we dont fully know ourselves when we learn something new about ourselves. (good or bad)

    I'd happily tell people,

    but if you don't ask or attempt to get to know me, you aren't going to know me, not truly.

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...
