    I'm overweight and a reject in the gay

    community, the only guy that is interested in me is a "feeder" and wants me to gain 200 pounds so he can rub on my belly and I feel disgusted with myself. Wish I could make all my problems go away but until them I'm ok, don't worry about me

    This is something I have worked very hard on

    and greatly improved. With people I trust, in general, I can be very honest with my feelings. Still, every now and then I feel that wall closing in that says, block everyone out. It can be a struggle sometimes to keep it down. Then again, talking about it with a good friend...

    Most of the time people only ask how you are to

    be polite, and if they don't get a fine or a good, they suddenly get quiet. 'How are you?' 'Not very good.' 'Why?' '*insert reason*' 'Oh.' How do you have a conversation with someone who just discovered you're in a bad mood and showed you they're uninterested in your feelings...

    I always say I'm okay

    'Ok' Is Just A Word

    Life is hard and letting people in to see the negative aspects of my life really makes me feel vulnerable. Plus, when it rains, it often pours and when you don't have the confidence in the connection between a person, its hard to trust that hearing all my baggage, won't make them...

    Saying I'm okay when I'm not has became a habit

    for me. I refuse to show people my weak side. I have become a pro at hiding how I really feel and it's to the point that I don't know how to express my feelings..

    Does Anyone Care

    Does anyone care? Does anyone honestly care? Judging by every move someone makes when they just want a friend. A sin made from the devil when they would like to produce a smile apon their face. To know you give a damn. Does anyone give a damn.. Anyone :/

    I always say I'm ok when I'm not.

    I do this to avoid discussing how I really feel with others. I don't trust a lot of people and I feel that they wouldn't care anyway. I feel I'm correct.

    Sometimes, You Have To

    When I am working, I can't be telling all my clients all my woes. That's not what I'm there for. There have been times, when I couldn't hide my distress, and they have offered a sympathetic ear. I appreciated it, but can't be doing that on a weekly basis. I wouldn't stay employed...

    I really hate having to fake being happy.

    Like my parents will ask if I'm okay because i just lay in my bed for hours in the dark and in the silence looking at the wall and i'll just say I'm fine because I don't want them to worry. Or i'll be with my friends and everyone's talking and laughing all the way and me...

    When ever someone ask me

    if I'm ok I say yeah. But I'm really not and make sure I keep my mask on. Sometimes it slips but I makes sure it stays on.

    Sometimes Is Today

    It's funny isn't it when you just know. I knew immediately I woke this morning I wasn't going to shine today. That I wasn't going to be okay. The cloud was hovering. Waiting. Damn that cloud. So you force the pleasantries, and chat away. You nod and smile and if asked say "I'm...

    Oh yes,what else can we say?

    I don't wanna gain sympathy by saying 'I am not okay',and to be honest it's just a question that no one actually cares for an answer,who cares whether you are okay or not! So we must keep repeating "I am fine,thank you",that's what we were taught to say in our childhood! :) We...

    I'm sure a lot of people did this.

    Maybe because they don't wanna make their loved ones worried, maybe because they can't just say the truth, maybe because they're not ready to tell the truth yet.

    Negative attitudes drain the whole crowd and hiding that we are sad can be a very good thing, but it's not easy. Questions are depressing when you don't learn how to answer them. You never know when someone will ask something new. That is why I try to look happy even if I feel...
