    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    Which Is Why I
