    No One Understands Me!

    I feel misunderstood all the time! I have strange emotions and sometimes I can be happy and get upset in no time! The littlest things make me mad and I am very emotional. I confuse a lot of people and I don't think people really know how to handle the way I am so...

    Sometimes when I speak people

    even don't pay attention, or just look at me just like nothing happened, they don't get me.. Maybe the reason is that I suffer from social anxiety , I comunicate with people , but I feel misunderstood

    My bf of 2 years doesn't understand me at all.

    I guess it's because I get offended easily, and he like to make wise cracks all the time. He says things n a negative way and when I give him a mean mug about it he's says he was just joking. He doesn't like to be serious.

    I love my family, I want to say

    that first, with all my heart. But do you ever feel misunderstood. Time and time again I feel I am. I understand the fact that as a teenager this is expected of me, but I want to express this on ep because It is an app use for ventilating these forms of emotions. I feel as...

    Lost

    I feel misunderstood, but I think I have myself to blame. Maybe if I  talk more about my thoughts, my feelings, then people will understand me better. But the more I tell about myself, the more people can hurt me.....hmm I´m even lost in trying to understand myself...
