I Don't Understand People

    It's upsetting. If only people shared what was

    really on their minds, without holding back.

    Why All The Drama?

    Don't I sound like a hypocrite? I'm one of the most dramatic people I know, and I'm complaining about drama. Aren't I awful? But really, my friend is really sad, and she's always really sad, and she is genuinely the most wonderful person in the world. She's so nice, and she'd do...

    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...

    People don't make any sense to me

    when it comes to my own life. Now, I can understand other people's problems with people very quickly and very well. It's not uncommon for people to be taken aback by my insight. My inability to understand my own life is especially irritating in light of this. People seem to...

    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...

    So, I'm in college and in one of my classes I

    sit behind a girl I find very attractive. The first few classes we didn't really talk except for small group discussions we were doing. Eventually, we started talking and she started opening up about her inner geek and other inane stuff, even admitting to thinking she might have...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    I don't understand why some people use their

    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...

    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...

    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?
