I Feel Like No One Understands Me Sometimes

    I mean I know there is people

    that do but the people around me just don't get me. They don't understand how depression works and trying to explain it to them is a dead end road. I've tried therapy and I've tried meds, nothing works for me. I'm stuck in a bubble with people that just judge me. One day, I know...

    I am seventeen and at this point in my life I

    feel so alone. Everyone in my life that is supposed to be my support system has kind of backed off. I try to talk to people but I often feel like I am bothering them with my problems because at the end of the day they will never be in my shoes. Right now I honestly feel like I...

    I have so ******* done right now.

    You give life a second chance, have a positive outlook, and feel like trying. You actually try your hardest to do something and actually feel hope that you might actually be able to prove yourself for once, be able to show off your talent, when someone brings you down and takes...

    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...

    I howl at the moon from the roof.

    So what? I want a swing suspended from my bedroom ceiling. Sometimes I wear 2 bras. I wear my bathrobe backwards. I like Wednesdays a Lot. Too much really. I hang up blank white canvases in my room as art. I dyed my hair dark last year. I looked awful. I want to do it...

    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.

    "Be yourself!" Those optimists always exclaim.

    "Don't hold back who you really are!" Doesn't always apply. In order to lead a life which isn't shrouded with concerned faces, I have to make do and emulate what the other normal people are doing. And by doing that, nobody understands the true me, but, who cares? Because...

    People often underestimate me

    because of my quiet nature. What they fail to realize is that this is because when I do speak, they fail to listen. Often times I find myself struggling with my thoughts by myself because those around me just don't take what I say seriously which is why talking about my problems...

    People tend to judge a book by it's cover.

    They assume that I'm a *****, or stuck up because of how I look. No one actually takes the time to get to know how I really am, beneath my exterior. I can't help the way I look or how I'm perceived. Knowing this is frustrating, and it just hurts..

    What's This Feeling?

    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...

    My eyes burn from baring my soul.

    Exposing my soul to no one but myself is something I have to get used to. Been hiding under illusions. Cowering in fear. The phase is over. But my eyes still burn. Reminder that the exposure was real. That the truth has been said. To share the depths of my soul would be to bare...

    why I tell everyone in here the things I do, It's because you listen. There are pervs, I know that, but I love it because for once in my life someone actually listens and understands me.

    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.
