    Do You Hear Me?

    Sometimes I really wonder who actually hears me or listens to me... When I feel so alone and I break down and pour my heart out to someone, do they really listen or are they just there not really caring but pretending? I wonder sometimes if those people that always are "there...

    No One Listens To Me

    I speak. People disregard what I say. Mother. Boyfriend. Dog. Boss. Co-workers. Everyone. My voice is clear and sound. I am not a low talker. I reiterate what is important. And I get nothing back. To get my point across in the future ill have people repeat back to me what I...

    I want is to listen to someone & know

    everything there is to know about them but the only problem is I want them to want the same thing with me. Having a hard time finding that, but I really do enjoy listening to people I just don't know how to feel close to someone it's lonely at times.

    I'm Oppressed

    It's like everyone would only listen if they want something, other than that, no one ever cares about my opinions, my ideas, or my feelings. I know confidence is the key, but i'm talking about family members and best friends, shouldn't i be but myself with them ?

    This is one of the main reasons I talk to myself

    and enjoy my solitude. My parents, siblings, "friends," coworkers etc never listen to what I have to say. I sometimes have to raise my voice to state an idea that could help. Coworkers, group members etc then come to me in the last moment to get help when I clearly explained it...

    the less people listen. I can sit perfectly still all day and never make a peep and everyone wants to know what is wrong, (or at least the best ones do), or worse, they take the smile on my face for happiness. I am alone in my thoughts. Alone to figure everything out. I have...
