    The Person Who Did Understand You Has Left You Behind

    I'm a senior in college, and so far the only person to truly understand me is my good friend from high school, but now he goes to another university half way across the US and has a girlfriend, and virtually disappeared in my life. I love my current friends and I know they all...

    The Outcast

    It is so sad for me that I must live like this, in pain, rejection and betrayal. People can't understand my life, my actions or anything. I have experienced extreme depression over something that I couldn't understand and people took it in the wrong way and made me suffer though...

    I understand this is a very arrogant assumption.

    However there are days when I FEEL this is the case. I am very empathic, or I try to be. But when I feel I really need someone to listen to me, my voice has to be louder than another just to get someone to understand I need an ear, or a shoulder. *sigh* But, I understand this is...
