    I don't understand how I think I look nice in

    pictures. But in the mirror all I see is a fat, dirty looking black girl who won't go anywhere in life or someone who can't get a decent guy. I feel so ugly in and out of clothes. I just want to be different.

    If it ain't one thing it's another.

    Bad things happen when something good comes along. It's like it's life's way of saying "You can have a good thing, but I don't want you to be completely happy". I'll never understand life and why things happen the way they do. It's a battle between pain and pleasure.

    This is the closest topic I could find

    for this post, but I still am finding this hard to grasp after 3 years. I know being only 17 y'all are gonna critique my age, but I was in a relationship for 2 1/2 years that ended 3 years ago. He was my best friend. And I was only 13 or 14 when we started dating. He's two years...

    I really don't understand people. So confusing and comforting and unpredictable and frustrating and emotional and fragile and strong and wonderful and horrible and inspiring and depressing. I don't know what to do with people sometimes. Yes, even you reading this. Even myself...

    Something I don't understand is

    why little children wear make-up, have boyfriends/girlfriends, sleep around, and party. I mean, seriously, don't they have better things to do, like schoolwork, hobbies and learning how to spell...? They're still children. Not adults. What are they doing with their lives...

    I don't understand why people use a specific

    I can't believe social conduct dictates you

    say, "Hi," to almost everyone you see when you walk by. Sometimes (More like most times), I just don't want to make an awkward situation (as I often do).

    I don't understand when someone tells me "I
