    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

    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'm pretty smart. Im pretty sensitive.

    Im pretty intuitive. And I understand that people change. But I don't understand how someone can talk to you practically every day for a significant amount of time and things seem pretty damn good, and then they simply don't talk to you any more. It's just not in my DNA to do...

    I don't understand why some people use their

    real names and pictures on the internet, when they are obviously sharing such deeply personal stories. Maybe I'm just an abnormally private person, but the thought of other people knowing so much about me is frankly, terrifying. Especially when you consider the fact that I know...

    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.

    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 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.

    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...

    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...
