I Think No One Will Ever Know You Completely

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 159 People

    Im a Closed Book (with a Few Open Pages)

    no one will ever fully know me, i cant imagine that happening. I would have to put myself in a position of trust and compromise myself to get to that point. I dont think it will ever happen.

    How Could They?

    (if you're experiencing deja vu, it's because it's a slightly changed version of a story i wrote for another group) sometimes i feel so desperately isolated by my experiences and my emotions and my way of understanding things. like i just want to stand in the street and scream...

    Not Really

    Especailly here where all you get are words. You can tell a lot about someone by how they write...that is if they are not making stuff up. But online you will never know the person behind the screen. Never know their little quirks and the little things that make them happy or...

    Bipolar?

    I have been diagnosed as bipolar since I was 15 (I am 23 now). I have never felt that anyone truly understands me, even myself. I never know when I wake up, how I'll feel when I go to sleep that same night. I understand the feeling of not being completely known.

    No Complaints

    When I was a kid I thought that loneliness was a normal condition.  It was a natural state, something that belonged to mankind.  I was just not adapted to it.  I couldn't get used to it.  It caused a lot of pain.   Slowly I started to realize that others...

    I Agree But Is That Really Important?

    I agree, "no one will ever know you completely". But really I think to say it like that just sounds too pessimistic. I mean, I don't think the ability to have absolutely everything about you is really the point to life ever. Besides, we all seem to like our secrets. I...

    It Really Doesn't Matter

    Unless someone followed you around your whole life, they could never come close to knowing you, and even then they wouldn't know what you were thinking. It is a good thing though, because we all constantly re-invent ourselves, you forget the bad things, remember the good things...

    A Virtual Impossibility If You Ask Me

    The human brain is something like a 1000 times more intricate than even the most complex of computer programs; that being said, how can one ever hope to completely know the deepest, darkest recesses of another person's mind?  there are days when i confound and confuse...

    No Way

    you can get very close to a person of course, and know them very well, but I don't belive anyone will ever know you 100% and you will never know anyone else that 100% either. And sometimes you even do things to surprise yourself! Do you think it's possible that you will never...

    We Constantly Reinvent Ourselves...
