    I don't understand why people portray

    themselves to be something that they're not. Why would a person assume that acting one way and then doing things that go against everything they said they were is going to build lasting relationships with people? I understand the need many people feel for acceptance, but wouldn...

    I Don't Understand People....

    I don't understand people at all. One of these people is someone I know outside this site. I bend over backwards for her, and the day that I have a bad day and decide to give her a chance to be there for me, she decides to throw it in my damn face, and than tells me, if I...

    Or do i. Are we lemmings.

    Uneasy

    There are times in my life that I try to understand people and help them out, but they act like they already know everything and just push me away, I am okay with that but I am not  okay with people thinking they already know everthing. If we all knew everything in...

    Sometimes i just don't understand people.

    They yell at you for putting up fake stories, then get mad when you say that they're fake because it implies that they're dumb. They say that your story is too short when you worked so hard, then complain it's too long if you just threw a couple of sentences in. And if I didn't...

    When I bring food to school to share,

    I have answers like these: "No thanks, I'm full." "It's okay, you can have it." "Nah, I don't really like that." When someone else brings the same thing, they have answers like these: "Ooh, what's that?" "Can I try one?" "Hey! Can I have one please?" So, is it people avoiding...

    Seems basically all people

    when they hit their 40s become lazy and let themselves go, its sad to see and they just end up with their wife/husband without being in love, not livin life to its fullest, i guess they just end up taking everything for granted?

    I don't understand when people ask

    for help and then just don't accept it. Make up your mind and know what you want. Either you want help or you don't. If you want someone to help you, listen to you and someone comes in offering you that help, then let him bloody help you. Don't just ignore him. Otherwise, you'd...

    I Am An Alien On My Planet

    No really, I don`t understand, can`t fathom how or why those social concepts came up. I don`t get other women, so I`m kind of a tomboy, but then I don`t get guys either. Why do they obcess over sports, beer and all those frat party things, why do insist on being jerks or...

    I don't understand why some people use their

    I don’t understand people. Not at all. Not one bit. It seems you can never take their word on anything...and you are better off, way better off just keeping your distance and not getting too close either. Sad. Very sad. I know, motives, agendas, self-preservation, what do I...

    Not At All

    I can understand myself (and that took years to accomplish) and yet I cannot fathom anyone else. I wish I knew what people were feeling and how all that played out into life. Family, friends, associates, people, they all play out in their own way apart from me. I feel so unique...

    Seriously?

    People are confusing. One moment they're happy and chatty with you, then they're cold and distant the next. What gives?! Honestly, I think one of the greatest mysteries in the world is...people.
