    Complexities

    No human being is as simple as a blade of grass, they are huge trees, complex, diverse, strong, yet weak too. Yes, and all kinds of bugs live on us! I am just as complex as every other human being on this, our planet. The things that motivate me may differ. I seek happiness...

    Not One To Understand

    I often feel that people don't even listen to me when I'm talking. Especially at home. When I talk about things that really interest me, no one really seems to listen. Just like now. I told my mother about how upset the ending of a series made me, and she just sat there, tapping...

    Yes, I've experienced some awful ****,

    but I refuse to be a victim! That mentality is anathema to me! Why should I get hung up over it? Men can be incredibly ugly at times, they're not strong emotionally, psychologically, they are burdened with this force of need to mate. Yes, women also like to partake in carnal...

    Actually, most of the time.

    Especially my 'family'. They don't understand why I have a problem with my ex husband (who I divorced 10 yrs ago) living with my sister and her husband. In their house. And this is a man who tried to kill me and damaged her car by trying to run us off the road! Who doesn't pay...

    I'm okay with that

    I will never find someone in this lifetime that will ever understand me and I don't intend to dwell on such a possibility that there ever will be. It will just tend to bring me down even more and waste mental energy altogether..waiting for that someone to at least try but it will...

    No one understands that I'm not the guy you'll

    see running around worrying about swag, trying to have lots of sex, and smoke a lot of weed. I'm not that guy. Since I don't share their persona they create a false one for me, dubbing me as weirdo, pervert, parasite. I'm not any of these things. I just wanna live.

    No one understands me.

    There are things I just can't even admit to my best friend because she'll think mk a weirdo. Like say I am in love with my teacher for 2 years and I haven't admitted this to anyone but myself. It really sucks. I sometimes shout out loud that I love F. Just to hear it out loud...

    No one understands everyone perfectly.

    It's impossible and everyone will feel like no one understands them at various points in their life. But I can easily say no one has ever understood me. In fact I've been told quite the opposite. Some people are even interested to hear my opinions on various matters because they...

    I suppose it would be unfair to say that people don't understand me sometimes, when I don't even understand myself. How is it that a person can say that they don't ever want to get married one day, and then is curious to wonder what it would be like to be married? How is it...

    You Can Ask Me Why

    It's a painful truth for some that certain people change. They cry or argue out of their new differences. But they're missing out the big picture. The reasons why that person changed. And it's way more hurtful for them when no one really cares to know and understand why.
