    I wrote this a few years ago.

    It felt odd reading through these old feelings and still being able to identify with most if not all. While I feel all these emotions, I believe the scale has tipped and I have now reached the point where the seeking love is no longer worth the disappointment and pain that...

    I can't be anyone other

    I'm clumsy, silly, a little strange,

    awkward in the highest level, not good with socialising, and really blunt about what I think. But i don't know how else I should act so why bother creating a me I don't know, but a me who is true to herself

    So I've got this weird issue

    and I'm looking for any information. I am a 34 yr old male that looks like a teenage girl. Except I'm 6'5". Really I don't mind looking young or female. I'm just looking for information.

    Lately I've been feeling lost

    and alone. And if I try and talk to my best friends I'm either "too emotional" or "overthinking"... We are going through our first year of college and I'm going through a completely different experience than them. My first college choice made me happy at first but then I became...

    Ep is such a great venue to just be yourself!

    Why would we pretend to be anything else. Such a diverse assembly of unique and interesting people here.

    I'm just me it's all I know how to be,

    I may seem boring to some, too quiet, emotional, timid, withdrawn,anti-social at times, and witty. I can't be what other people want me to be then I would be wouldn't be real.

    From me, you get what you see.

    I don't have time for games or drama, I'm just me. I'm honest, blunt, sarcastic, and a little bit crazy...if you don't like that, it's ok, I'm not here to be friends with everyone.

    I am totally just being truthful

    and honest about myself. I am not trying to be someone else that I'm not. I don't want to change the real me (maybe change for a better somehow) just people to accept me. If someone doesn't like you, so what? It means he would never be a great (understandable) friend at all...

    ... This is me and truthfully Sometimes i

    wished i wasn't like this as it hurts beyond words to feel everything the way i do. But because i feel the way and have learned how to channel those negative emotions and turn them around and give love instead of passing on the pain being me brings sometimes.lilredressღ

    Troubled Times

    I'm Just Me.

    I'm me, I'm just a girl that somehow still alive. One minute, one hour, one day, one week, one month, one year at a time. Be proud of who you are because a original is a lot better than a copy.

    If you got a dream, you protect it chase

    after it and get it, don't let anyone stand in your way because they will take it and hire you to help build it. So don't be afraid to fail or to stand out because in the end your dream will come true and they won't be laughing at you but they will be helping you
