I Feel Like No One Understands Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 954 People

    I unintentionally get people to hate me.

    I don't do much on purpose, yet I still manage to **** people off. I have broken friendships through misunderstandings and I'm just like "Do I even bother?" I don't deserve to live in this world, just kill me already!

    because no one knows me. Everyone I know I can't trust they all have someone else they have to tell. If I tell someone anything everyone knows. So I tell no one And no one knows.
