    I Don't Have Much Hair Left

     Nor much money.  Shoot my mouth off often.  Have a weird sense of humor.  Belch at times, fart at others but apologize for both.  Lactose intollerant but eat ice cream and suffer that bloating feeling often.  Get cramps in my legs sometimes so I...

    I Think It Comes Down To................

     Beauty in the eyes of the beholder. Different strokes for different folks.  I know I can be a hard pill to swallow for some people. I can be brash, bitchy,  blunt, I tend  to get a bit bent very easily some days.  Sure, I have a good heart, but for...

    It Confuses Me

    I can't figure out what it is about me that people like! In the real world I only have 3 people I'm close to, My big sister, My best mate & A friend I call "My kid sister". I'm insecure, Shy, A scifi/horror geek and I'm such...

    Sometimes I Wonder....

    Although I know the answer, I prefer not to think about it. I seem to be a magnet for cheats, fakes, liars, and toxic people.

    Sometimes I Wonder

    Honestly, I really don't see how anyone would really like me. I mean I know i'm not a bad person and I can be kind, but  i'm not that interesting of a person. What you see is what you get. I don't talk that much so I must be boring, I guess I can see why some people decide...

    Ditched.

    I subconsciously think that my friends and family don't really like me. Why would they? The people that I thought liked me ditched me.

    Sometimes...

    Not that I know a lot of people or have any real friends in real life, but those that have been in my past I've always wondered what it was about me that they liked enough to want to be my friend. Yeah, yeah, I know it sounds like I'm getting too down on myself, but I'm not. I...

    I had a relationship with a guy I couldn't see

    because my mother didn't allow it , he didn't give up and wanted to ask her for permission. I knew my mother wouldn't approve no matter how nice he is. Every day I didn't see him, I'd lose feelings for him, now at school a kid told me , I like you, he would take me to all my...

    Scared

    Jehovanah's Witnesses People won't leave me alone. Why do they keep on showing up at my house? Are they trying to convert me into their religion? Why do they like me so much? I can just see me opening my front door to them and they just kidnap me and have a ********* rape me. I'm...

    Which Is Why I

    don't so the self evaluations at work.  What I think of what I do and how good I do it, and what my boss thinks of what I do and how well I do it are two very different things. Cause the customers that I work with will not tell me to my face how good a job that I do but...

    Weird!

    I do wonder this... and my paranoid side says that a person doesn't really like me... they're trying to kiss-up for something. :-o But then reality hits me and most people do like me... Some even treat me like I'm some rock star or some angel or something guru of sorts. WHY...

    frustrating,insecure,ugly,fat,sensitive....really sexy,huh? I guess I am a generally decent person. I don't intentionally hurt anyone and will always be there for you. I guess I think my faults over-power the good...that or I'm crazy,too.

    Quite a Bit

    I am not so bad as I used to be.  I thought that people were only befriending me in order to do their good deed or alternate to that, to gain ammunition and confirm to themselves why I was not likeable. I still have twangs of that every now and then but have become more...
