    Sometimes I think my balance and logic are my greatest strengths, but most penalizing handicap at the same time.I'm not a damsel in distress, or a helpless maiden on the verge of doom. No, I have fought through (and still struggle against) a lot of very scary, tragic and...

    Inside my own family.

    .. In 2012, my mum was diagnosed & treated for AML. My dad spent a lot of time with her at the hospital, leaving my brother & myself to look after the house. My brother had a girlfriend, so it was pretty much me by myself. I took on the struggle alone, because I felt like I...

    Why Don't People Like Me?

    Around people, sometimes it feels like they don't even see me. When I'm with my best friends, they don't even notice me! I'm nice at least I think so, but it seems like they don't care. Also, i've never been out with a guy. My friend has  many. I try to be happy for her, but...

    No One To Talk To.

    I can't even remember the last time someone texted me first. it's always me starting a conversation, which makes me feel bad because i feel like I'm bothering them. Just when no one bothers to have a conversation with you, you just feel like they don't care if you're in their...

    That moment when you text someone,

    it shows they "read" the message, but they don't respond. Ever. So then you give it some time, text them again something completely unrelated, they "read" it again and, nothing. Good feeling. :/

    No Difference

    So yesterday I thought that I could just close myself off from the world and just wait and see who would notice. The more I thought about it today the more I did not like my decision. If I would do that then people would win. It is my life and I can live it the way I want. I...

    I Love Being Invisible, Really!

    It makes me feel safe. After two attempted sexual assaults and one full blown rape, I enjoy not having men stare at me or hit on me. I like feeling unnoticed as I go about my day. The days where I am not invisible tend to be the ones I struggle with.

    Sometimes is an understatement.

    I speak to people and they either don't reply, or give the standard uh huh. I want someone to actually listen to what I'm saying not just hear it. People speak over me and then when they notice it and try to let me speak it just feels even more awkward. I do so much for everyone...

    I am introverted and generally content with

    being on my own, but that doesn't mean I never get lonely. When I do, it feels like I'm desperate for anyone to notice me, to acknowledge my existence, so we can share some time in each other's human experience. But nearly every time someone reaches out to me, I wish they'd...

    sometimes it feels empowering, like I can do anything and get away with anything. other times it makes life feel hollow and empty.

    No one ever asked me to a dance in high school

    so I never went to homecoming or prom. I've never been taken or asked out on a romantic date, never gotten flowers from someone, never been showed interest in really. I often feel completely invisible and unwanted. I can't help but feel like there's something wrong with me..
