    Not Wanted

    I imagine a poster, likened to those featured in the 'Wild West' movies. Instead of the word 'Wanted' written boldly across the top, is the words 'Not Wanted'. Below these words is a photograph of me. The photograph looks like it's seen it's better days, it isn't attractive in...

    My Dad On The Phone

    When you get my dad's answering machine, his voice sounds like something tragical just happened. I always try to reach him person because he sounds so disappointed in that message. But then again, when I do reach him he sounds just as depressed. Why does this guy even have a...

    Not Wanted

    I feel it when I am not wanted.  Sometimes, I don't bother and still go to places where I feel like I am not welcomed, and there's other times and places, I do not go anymore.

    I also know when I am too boring to continue

    talking to. A lot of people think I'm boring and rubbish which is fine because really, I know that I suck. But today this cute guy asked for my number and now after speaking to me for like ten minutes, he's told his friend to tell my friend to tell me his phone is broken. All...

    Hard Not To Tell

    My whole life people have made it pretty clear I am not wanted. I've always been, not sure how you would call it, but subhuman. I know everyone else is better then me, one because they tell me, two because they show me, and three because they just don't want me around. not my...

    I Can Tell I'm Bothering You

    You can tell when you are bothering someone. Its doesn't take long to pick up on the subtle hints. But these are the people who are my 'friends'. Be there when I need them, please call or get in touch and they'll be there - oh bullsh!t. Not that I was expecting someone to...

    Never Wanted Anywhere...

    Yes I learned at a very young age to take a hint! Not by my family but by everybody else. I was always the one everyone avoided and that sure has never changed not even in here! No one EVER has to come out and say so because I can just tell! Lots of practice. For example, if I've...

    Very Often.

    It's too bad that I'm a stubborn personality, persistent, and clingy. You think I leave when I'm not wanted? Think again, I stay very much so. Not because I want the pain, it's because running will be more painful for me. So I stay, knowing whenever I'm not wanted :]

    I Can Usually Tell :-(

    I can usually tell when i'm not wanted, by the way someone speaks, like the tone of their voice, or how they behave and their little gestures and mannerisms!, :-( Oh! yes, i can certainly take a "hint", when i'm not wanted!,. ;-(

    Low Self-esteem May Cause False Alarms

    sometimes, we are oversensitive to the signals of others, and we feel unwanted even if that is not really the case. I spent the early decades of my life with low self-esteem, and I often felt unwanted among friends. By now I know they were true friends, and I was just...
