    The part I hide from my family is my submissive

    I Hide My Tranny Side From Some

    I've always been transgendered and for many years I hid that from everyone, and no one knew. But eventually my wife found out, and told many of our female friends trying for sympathy (but it always turned out that I'd end up with another girlfriend to go out with). But to this...

    I just do. I don't understand

    why but, I do. They don't know what I really like, what I like to watch, what music I really listen to, what my dreams are, the stories I have made, the number of profiles on other websites. I just cover up everything, like an colony of ants below ground and above it is just...

    About a decade ago, I divided myself.

    One part of me retreated into my mind and became my inner voice that I frequently speak to. She doesn't tell me to do insane or violent things, she doesn't bad mouth me (most of the time) and she's generally good at keeping me company since I'm a very lonely spirit. I've been...

    They Wouldnt Understand

    They just wouldn't understand, they judge. I don't, I even have to hide it from my wife. The one person who I should be able to tell everything to. My perverted desires, if she knew them she would never trust me out of her sight. Not that she does now. I feel like I'm in a...

    Yeah, Hiding It All Is Just A Part Of Life...

    I'm a bit too shy to tell my parents everything about myself. I don;t know how they would react to be honest. Grew up in a religious, conservative, military family (in the military myself now). I'm bi, I'm a furry, I'm a complicated person... I don;t know iof they would get it...

    So far I've only shown him,

    the one I love that side of me. And he's not disgusted by it at all. But deep down inside my mind I'm still insecure about it somehow. The words he said and I don't know why it's stuck in my head. And I feel so conflicted I haven't told anyone else but him. I've written about...

    I Don't Want Them To Know

    how much they can hurt me by fighting with each other. If I let them know, they will think that I am trying to control them; so I hide it.

    Mostly From My Mom.

    My mom thinks I am all happily married and stuff. Well, I'm not. She couldn't have kids so they adopted and it was just me. My dad died a few years back and it is tough on my mom. I barely make enough money to get by, can't help her out with that. I think the only thing she...

    love could give me. I know it's not something most people talked about my friend even said "Why don't you take care of it yourself? You seem to need it." It's not like that I think, don't know how it can have such impact on me. Is this some form of illness? Damn this is...
