    I'm the odd one out in groups,

    just looking and hearing people are saying. I just want to feel normal, and be normal, and not worry about everything everyday. I'm tired of being isolated.

    Even when I am surrounded by people I feel

    alone. Just lost in my own little world. But I do have a special someone who helps me feel great and makes me feel not so alone in this world.

    When I am not with my boyfriend

    or at work, I spend my time locked away in my room, browsing my phone, or listening to music. I enjoy my time away from the real world. The fantasy that I let consume me while alone with my thoughts is so much better. I love my boyfriend and love spending time with him, but I...

    I know my family loves me,

    yet there are things I can't tell them. My friends all like me, but there are things I can't explain to them. The one person who I fully rely on isn't always emotionally stable(myself) When thinking about this, I get anxious and start breathing heavy. Is that an anxiety attack?

    People are a constant let down and their behavior is appalling, therefore I tend to keep to myself a lot.

    Ever since I stopped omitting pieces of myself

    to make other people more comfortable, life has become more enjoyable. I have found inner peace, and happiness in the time I spend alone. Any chance I get, I'll try to get alone time. Even if I am in a room full of people, I want to leave, I want to go make something of myself...

    I'm always alone everywhere.

    My mom and I don't have a mother and daughter bonding. Eveytime I try to talk to her she is either busy or we just argue. We do have some moments where we don't argue but it rarely happens. I have one friend at school but she have been hanging out with others now.

    I hide myself in loneliness

    and darkness. I stay away from people and push them away to avoid making friends because when you care for someone they either betray you, leave you, or die. I stay away from friends because I don't want to be hurt again.
