    Confused

    Sometimes i find life exhausting. I often find interacting with people difficult - I try to be open and honest with everyone, even people that i meet casually - what they see is me - it is who i am, not a version of me. I used to change to suit the situation/person but i don't...

    ... Boys. I just don't understand boys!

    So, I met his guy. I'm not after a boyfriend or anything, just ... A bit of 'fun' I suppose. Anyway, he seemed well into me. Wanting to meet me and stuff. And now he's just stopped texting me. Literally the last message he sent was how he wanted to be kissing me. That was...

    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...

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

    I don't understand most of the things I do to myself. I get into a lot of situations and don't know why. I've been treated bad so many times and I don't know why. I'm not a bad person. I mostly don't understand humans. LOL
