    My partner is a bad tempered domineering bully.

    We have just come through Christmas and I was walking on eggshells the whole time so as not to upset him. I'm sick of his bad moods and the way he shouts at me over nothing. His main problem is that he is insecure. He takes offence at the slightest thing and never admits he is...

    When asked if I was into *** worship.

    I love escaping to fantasy,

    but when you come back to reality it slaps you in the face really hard. Anime/Manga and music help me do that, but that only keeps you away from reality for such a short amount of time.

    Dad, I don't understand you.

    Remember when I used to meet that man who were at least 10 years older than me? He had a shaved head and were quite short for his age? I went to his house, and when you found out that I had actually followed a stranger home you were afraid to death, afraid that your little...

    Fantasy is so much more interesting...

    I am often stuck in my own little world of fantasy. Imagination is very important in this world. Because without it, without books, without fantasy, this world would be so dull.It is so normal. So ordinary. What do people see in it, I wonder? I look around at all the ordinary...

    I tend to day dream a lot.

    In fantasy, anything is possible.

    In fantasy, I'm in charge. In fantasy, no one dies or leaves you. In fantasy, everyone's happy.

    I want my reality to be like a fantasy,

    and I fight for my fantasies to come true. I like magic in my life... and I see a whole different world when someone means so much to me. Inevitable to see the poetic expression of that situation and yes... It feels like a fantasy or a movie. I see dreams.

    Honestly, I prefer it

    so much, I sit in class and just daydream the whole time, and make my own story's. I do it so much, I can't even tell what's real half the time. What actualy happened and what was a dream, and they all think I'm crazy. But, whatever.
