    and people, specially my family,

    think that I'm naive and don't get what's going on around me. It's my choice not to react.

    Im The "Quiet One"

    I'm a listener and an observer. People don't usually pay attention to me because I'm quiet but I always pay attention to them whether I want to or not.

    I'm very observant by nature.

    I notice things most people overlook. So many people don't notice others when they need help. Or they do, but chose to ignore them and stick with their click( no pun intended).It's a sad commentary but it's true. Selfishness is in the rise, selflessness is fading. Where do you...

    I Just Play Like I'M Dumb, But Yet Have Gained Lots Of Wisdom Over The Years!

    I was in a bad relationship, it involved lying, drugs , cheating, I was controlled , and emotionally and mentally abused! So I take a lot of the things I have learned and I use them to detect and decode what others maybe doing or what their intentions are. So I may pretend as if...

    Observation.

    I notice everyone making the same mistakes I've made, I understand that these mistakes exist as a lesson and that I can only watch and encourage "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink". I see everyone on their different levels of consciousness and...

    Now I have to say something about what I've

    noticed here on EP that I have not said before. I feel stranded. I've been here for four years, and have witnessed a steady decline in the number of folks here who do not engage me in conversation anymore. The "friends" in my circle are few. Fewer yet are any who contact me. I...

    It is a very strange feeling,

    when you know you're witnessing something very few others are. Honestly, I don't like it. I often wish I was as blind as others seem to be.

    I don't have many friends anymore.

    I still love and care about all my old friends. If I see them at parties or get togethers I usually don't say much just a wave or a smile, maybe I'll throw a, "hey" somewhere in there. They don't understand that I'm happy just being around them and knowing they're okay. They...

    I'm good at listening to conversations.

    I do it without them noticing. I pretend I'm listening to music and zoning off but I lower the volume to listen. I've heard some pretty interesting things.

    The people around me often misconstrue my

    shyness as my ignorance. They think I don't get it. Sometimes some people say hurtful things to get a reaction out of me but I stay tongue- tied. I notice their selfishness and manipulations but I don't say anything. I rather ignore than talk rudely to anyone.
