    Nothing aggravates me more

    than this: If I'm trying to actually reach out to you and become friends with you, pull your tampon out and appreciate it. I get it, some people are shy, but if you are more outgoing than half of our student body, then what's wrong? You shove your nose in the air as if you can...

    Always, I feel like I give too much.

    I'm more invested. I'm more interested. I'm more wanting. But it's ok. I can be a giver, a caretaker. Some of us are just meant to be in that role. I need to learn how to be that person and be happy in that role so I can not expect too much from other people. Some people aren't...

    I'm Done!

    I have tried to make people happy, I've tried to not step on peoples eggs shells, but by doing so I step on their glass stars. I'm tired of being seen as the 'bad guy' just because I am done bending over backwards and jumping through hoops to make people around me not get pissed...

    Love's still insanity waiting

    for medication to heal. Nothing's worth wasting away for, yet we continue struggling through all the hardships for another person. I'm too kind a person to have the battered heart.

    I try hard to say the right things to people.

    Be the nicest I can be and care. But by doing this, you get **** in return. The same Amount of effort is never given back. I try to be outgoing and not insecure. But because I don't have someone trying hard to connect with me as I always do for them, I become insecure. It makes...

    When I was a teenager I was driving with a

    couple of my girlfriends. A truck drove past us, there were 3-4 guys about our age inside. As they went by, they were smiling and giving us a thumbs up. We smiled back, naturally. They slowly turned their thumbs down and laughed, so hilarious. Three teenage girls probably never...

    My friends don't try

    as much as I do. I have come to this conclusion. I'm always the one who says we should do something over the weekend or says we should plan something so we can all get together. I'm the one who gets excited when giving things to them for birthdays or holidays. I'm the one...

    I reach out to people too often to initiate

    conversation. It often fails and I wind up feeling like an idiot or that I'm bothering people.
