    I've been struggling with social anxiety

    for about 3 years, then I got put on antidepressants that helped my mood and anxiety a little. This year, i've been myself a lot more at school. Talkative, loud, making everyone laugh etc. But there is a girl picking on me whenever i talk. She hits me and pushes me in a "playful...

    When 2013 Comes? Can We Be Ourselves?

    The End of the Mayan Calendar does not exactly mean the End Of The World to me. Yet I still sense it means something. Hopefully I wish it was for the Better. But as this World is striving for more Economic Dominance. I worry that it means we lose our means of ... "Being Who We...

    Especially online.. Well

    both really. I just feel that if people knew certain things about me they'd leave and never speak to me again. That's why I find it hard to let people close to me online.

    And I hate that feeling!

    My parents aren't comfortable with me being myself when we go in public. Haha. They don't even like taking me places with them. Sometimes they'll even make me stay in the car. How awesome is that? They don't like the way I act or dress. I can't help it that I'm a fuming ball of...

    Whenever I'm at in public,

    I feel like my parents think I'm a disgrace. They've actually told me they're afraid to go out in public with me. All because I'm too loud. I don't understand. I've told them thousands of times, my loudness is one with my emotions. For example, I saw a buoy decoration that was...

    I can't be myself because myself is weird

    and most people don't understand me. It's like I have to try to be something completely different if I try to make friends.

    Brains, Beauty, Bonkers

    I am unique and most people can't handle the confidence I have in myself and who I am as a person.  I get upset of the closed-minded ignorance both openly and subconsciously expressed by everyone I meet. On one hand, the judgements don't bother me, but on the other, ...

    Ugh here we go. I try

    so hard to be myself around people, but I'm terrified of rejection :( I just can't think of anything to talk about and I get this intense feeling of panic that won't go away! I just can't find the words to say when I'm with one person. If I'm with a group, then it's fine! But I...

    I’ve always listened to people

    when they said that it’s okay to be different. That’s why I always kinda tried to embrace it. But no matter where I go, People always seem to put me down for it. Making me feel like a complete idiot. It’s not like I’m different in a bad way. I’m just interested in...
