    I just feel like I'm on a different page most

    of the time. No matter how much I try to explain myself, I feel like people don't get where I'm coming from. They get what I'm saying, but they don't understand why and it's not as important to them as it is to me. Idk it could be anything. I just often feel misunderstood when...

    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...

    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...

    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.
