    Fear

    I just don't understand my fears. I can lie in my bed happily one day and miss my girlfriend and want nothing more than to have her in my arms and the other day I have her with me and I'm so scared because she's so close that I can't breathe. I always tell myself that when I'm...

    I Am a Weirdo

     As an individual of the USA, I am a weirdo. Plain and simple. I confuse myself with emotions and then wash everything away with logic. Am I making sense? Wait- I don't even understand what I'm saying...

    It's Not Fair On Them.

    I expect the lads to understand me. A lot of the time they do, but other times they just haven't a clue. I shouldn't expect them to understand me because I don't even understand myself sometimes!!! But, I'm a woman and they're used to my confusing thoughts and ways.. I...

    It's hard to express myself sometimes. It's hard to put it out there. Everything. It's so much easier to generalize. Intimacy scares me. Terrifies me, even. It's difficult for me to swallow what I hear from others. It's difficult for me to swallow and accept the opinions of my...

    My Partner.....

    quite often says "I worry about you." My mind works really oddly and as the group title states "I just don't get myself sometimes".
