I Dont Think Anyone Really Knows Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 751 People

    I'm surprisingly open about most things,

    but I keep a few key things very closely guarded. I don't think anyone can really know me unless they know those things. Haven't really been willing to tell anyone yet. Mostly because I've lied about them for such a long time. It's just weird to come out and say, "So I've been...

    I Am A Stranger To Everyone I Love.

    I keep so much of myself hidden away. Even family has zero chance of breaching the impregnable walls I have built up. My husband knows a lot, but he is still oblivious to most of my thoughts and feelings. That fear of being too close has roped itself around my waist and...

    Know Me Please

    Somebody please try to "know" me. Previously, I have been a very isolated person, changed to a person who has friends now, who matter. But very few close friends. I have had broken relationships. The closest a person can be is, with his wife (i think), but I feel she did not...

    Alone

    Most of the time, I am fine. But sometimes I worry that I will die and nobody has ever really known who I am. Is that stupid? Does anyone else feel that way? Its my fault, I suppose I am scared if people knew what I am really like they would judge me. The crazy thing is, I don't...

    When it comes down to it.

    Nobody really knows what type of person I REALLY am.. They can try to figure me out, but unless you're me. I guess you'll never know. I'm the type of person who is easy to read, but not easy to know who I really am.

    I feel so unseen (I guess

    that would be the word?). I'm lucky to have friends and family who love me, who put up with my flaws and enjoy the good things about me. Its just I don't think anyone really knows me. They see glimpses of me and me trying to be my best... but if they got to know the real me, I...

    Nobody

    I am a loner and a wanderer. I never let anyone too close to me as I am a very private person. There has only been a select few in my past that I have ever revealed myself to and that only ended up in heart ache in the worst forms of sadness and depression. So it is a matter of...

    I don't even know me.

    Sometimes I think I do, but I don't. Same for the others. So I wish they'd just quit making assumptions about me and just accept that I don't have the self awareness that society encourages us to have, and most of all just to accept me as who I am, even if not one of us know who...

    I think we can get a feeling for one another by reading them but do we really REALLY know them? I mean I have lots of stuff here and I love to write, pretty open about it too, but there's actually a lot I don't write. Maybe in due time I can come to open up and allow more of the...

    Most people have an outward perception of me.

    But in reality they don't know some of the deep stuff. A lot of people wouldn't expect me to think the things I do. Most people wouldn't expect that I have darker aspects. I've never really shown myself completely to anyone.

    No one ever really asks how I'm feeling.

    I have friends and family who love me but on the inside I'm really hurting. I cut myself and have scars to prove it. I haven't cut for a while but it doesn't mean I still hurt. I'd honestly rather not have to deal with people ever in my life. All they ever do is disappoint me...
