    I'm Sometimes Over-sensitive

    I am sometimes over-sensitive to others' reactions to me. When I am, I let those reactions affect me to the extent that I feel as though I need to change myself. I also find confrontation energy-draining and pointless, so when faced with an adverse response from someone towards...

    I Want Someone To Love.

    I feel so loney. I have no one to love. I would be the best girlfriend ever if someone gave me a chance. I am a nice girl, and will treat my boyfriend the best. I used to date, no it's like I can't get someone to save my life, and it's very depressing. I feel like I am incomplete...

    A Little Bird Around Hyenas

      I'm not a big public speaker, I don't like the attention, I'm kinda like "the behind the camera person". I'm very selective, I don't get along with just anybody. When I have a bad connection with someone I don't try to go further...which can happen a lot of time...

    For A Lot Of Reasons

    Mostly because I am an empath, sometimes I can feel really strongly what others feel. And if someone is fighting, depressed, or pissed off, it can affect me. Also because people tend to be nosy at the exact moment I don't want them to be. That really gets on my nerves...

    Trying To

    I have read a book called Risking by David Viscott in order to gain some more confidence in myself being around others. I can relate to quite a bit that is in the book, but still do not have a significant amount ot courage. I still feel like I should be someone else in order to...

    I don't exactly care about opinions

    but at the same time I don't like to show my true self to people because it gives them something to work with, a weakness to attack you with in arguments, let someone in and they'll take advantage I guess

    I've always had a difficult time being myself,

    like my crazy fun self around others. Especially people I first meet because I'm always trying to make a good impression and I feel like the way I am won't be good enough for them. That's a lot of the reason why I prefer having a long distance relationship because I can be...

    Especially At Times Like These

    Heads up this is me feeling extremely emotionally whacked out at the moment. This is my incoherent rambling that is an attempt to get rid of the stupidness that is the emotion that I'm hooked on at the moment. You have been warned. This makes no particular sense, it's just a...
