    Criticism

    I think this way sometimes...surely not all the time though. But sometimes I self-criticize and it's like being heckled from the windows as I pass. "Are you kidding with that outfit? You look like a clown!" ..."Oh yeah, go into the restaurant fattie, that's just what you need...

    Right. Title says it all.

    I'm in a very foul mood. It's psychologically damaging. I dislike my current state of mind of late. I'm either irritable or depressed.

    In My Head

    I can't fully explain what goes on in my head, mainly because I don't understand all of it, but all I know is that when I have days were I do nothing but think,  I am at my worse. It's almost like a drug, at first I just play around with my imaginations and continue my precious...

    I'm The First Person To Tear Me Down

    I have always demanded more from myself than any one else does. I am also the first to criticize myself. I have learned that when I am looking inward and contemplating myself I always tear myself down. I am indeed my own worst enemy.Not to mention, my head is full of crap. I have...

    Dark And Scary

    When I'm in my head ,which I most of the time, I am in a dark and frightening place that is full of demons fighting against me. My head is like a battlefield at times especially if I am feeling sad.

    I'm doing and listening. When I leave the house they would be looking out the window until I drive away, same thing when I return they would be at the window. And when I look at their window they try to hide. My room is right by their driveway and late at night they would go out...

    It's Sad And Desolate...

    When left to my own devices for very long I usually end up getting myself into a state of melancholy.  I dwell on things that have happened and most of the time I don't even realize it until I'm so upset that its useless to try to stop it.  So I would say that my...

    What Its Like

    A friend of mine recently told me that I was one of the very few people that she hadn't fully "figured out." I asked her what she meant by that, and she said that she just doesn't get me, or why I am the way I am. She hasn't figured out how to describe my thought processes...

    My Neighborhood

    Instead of windows, my neighborhood has mirrors. When I look out, all I can see is myself. I never get any trick-or-treaters. But there are an awful lot of firecrackers all year 'round. Don't know where they come from. They can be a bit startling.
