I Hide Part Of Who I Am From My Family

    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 think I'm the only one

    who does this. Sometimes I'll just go up to my room and listen to music or talking to my friends or even just sit there in silence. They don't understand me. They never have. It's like they think they know who I am just based on what they see and that's not the case. I'm a much...

    I wanted love and something else only the one I

    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...

    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...

    I am bisexual. My family isn't fond of gays

    and lesbians. I'm a disappointment to them. They have told me if I was gone no one would notice. I tested that. I disappeared for 3 days. They were right, no one noticed. I'm not the innocent country girl they wanted. I'm just a waste of space to them. My cousin who I was...

    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...

    Its usually my thoughts

    and true feelings as to tell them what I am thinking would only frighten them as I find it hard to put them into words correctly. I have had this problem before, but with psychiatrists. I can sometimes have very dark thoughts and feelings...these I keep to myself.

    Lol I hide all of me from my family.

    I try to give my Mum what she wants, a daughter with lots of friends, great at school, happy, talkative, likes shopping, etcetera. But I'm none of that. If she brings it up I'll play along and pretend. Very rarely does she catch a glimpse of what I am, and those are just when my...

    I am bi, but I have only told some friends.

    I am sure my family will accept me yet that does not seem to stop all of the negative thoughts I come up with. My friends told me I should come out to my parents at least, but whenever I think about it I get so nervous I feel sick to my stomach. I don't think I will ever be able...

    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.

    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...
