I Feel Misunderstood

    Right. This is probably the cliche'est of

    clichΓ©s when it comes to sharing. But I rarely find people who actually understand how to handle me. 'Handle' is the main section of that statement. I only rarely meet people I connect with, maybe two or three I've immediately known get me, or are able to communicate with me...

    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.

    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

    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...
