    I am glad my husbands friends are

    so happy not having me around anymore. They have him in their life. They always say how much they "love/ like me", but they are so much happier now that they don't see me anymore. I am tired of trying to make everyone happy. I can't change who I am or what happen in my past. So...

    Society expects us to put on our public face.

    Being who you really are is discouraged. Expressing yourself is all but forbidden. And they call this a democracy with freedom and liberty. Pfft... So, for my public face I was thinking of a Spiderman mask. Whadaya think? Its no wonder sub-cultures such as hippies and punks...

    Just A Thought

    I was sitting one night watching another Nevada Sunset and it reminded me of The George Michael / Elton John Video, β€œDon’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me.” As I watched the video and listened to the song, I thought about all the sites like this one that I visit on a regular...

    I can't really 'speak'.

    I talk a lot, I have conversations and things. But I can never describe myself as a person. I can't comfort someone, I can't make eye contact with basically anyone. I just don't react naturally in situations where I need to be personal and kind. It's all forced. I don't...

    I think there are just

    so many insensitive people these days. It makes me feel angry and bitter. It makes me tired of business people. It makes me feel unhappy and wish for a different life. One with a different group of people. Maybe all people are like this, but what if they are not?? What if it is...

    I have this backlog of things I want to be able to talk to my wife about. My problems would all go away, I think, if I had the kind of relationship where I could be honest about my feelings. But I can't. I just can't. I have been conditioned throughout our long, long...

    I'm coming to the unhappy conclusion

    that I've never felt good about myself. Like, I haven't gone through one day consistently feeling like I'm ok. I have my ups and downs, but I've realised that, despite a loving husband and family, I think less of myself than anyone else ever could. And that's sad.

    It Would Just Be Nice If...

    People could talk to each other without worrying if someone is going to take it wrong or flip their lid or whatever other undesirable behavior might come about.  It's just talking.  It doesn't alter the dynamics of the universe nor should anybody give that much control...

    is it just me or the people I am surrounded by

    or happen to come across, but it seems that most conversations I have with people anymore seem to be more of a competition than a conversation? I feel that so many people I talk to have to one up me, contradict what I'm trying to say, oppose, outsmart, out wit, or just plain...
