    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...

    Why is it that when you think someone

    understands you later you realise you were wrong all along? as much as I want to be with someone I can't seem to get it right maybe it's me but I will stay the heck away from people.

    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.

    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...

    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...
