    Why People Are the Way They Are

    I have met so many people in my life that over use the phrase "OH I UNDERSTAND COMPLETELY!".  It drives me nuts when someone says that.  I have had people tell me that they understand me completely when all they are doing is projecting their own thoughts and...

    Why do people always say

    when the LGBT community wants to be treated equally and not be discriminated against that they're somehow pushing their beliefs on everyone? I don't understand that. We just want to be treated like you, fairly. Its not like we are holding a gun to your head and using scare...

    One Need Not to Understand Everyone Or Everything

         One need not to understand everyone else or everything. But, one should understand themselves. Yes, even when you change you should understand & know why you have evolved into a new path or decision. I was raised in the country & I do not...

    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 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.

    Sometimes I don't understand anything.

    Like how can a person think it is ok to kill another person for nothing. Or sometimes I don't get school. Or just people in general like the world can just be so messed up sometimes it isn't even funny.
