    No one understands things the way I do.

    My mind thinks so differently to others. Everything makes sense to me and only me. I just can't explain it.

    I understand things differently

    than others. I seem to think I get it. How it is and where it's going. I can't seem to express my thoughts out loud though. It just doesn't come out. there is just so much I don't know where to or how to start with. I'm here looking for people who feel the same.
