    Men Are Too Weird

    I can't deny that. What's wrong with them, really?

    It's upsetting. If only people shared what was

    really on their minds, without holding back.

    I think it burns my since of truth to hear me

    shouting in my youth I need a way to sort it out. After I die I rewake redefine what was at stake from the hot side of a god. I see the people that I used, see the substance I abused, the ugly places that I lived. Did I make money was I proud? Did I play my songs to loud. Did I...

    Someone Remind Me...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    People don't make any sense to me

    How come when women on EP say they need someone

    to talk to, they don't care which gender. But when men write the same thing it means I'm Looking For A Woman. Often tagged Dating & Relationships. Just in case we were in any doubt at all. And the few who do reply usually start by asking if I'm gay. Is it beyond the wit of all...

    I have depression and

    when I tell people about it they take it like a joke. When somebody says there suicidal people shouldn't take that as a joke but, they do.

    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?
