    I can't understand why

    but I can't accept myself. I try and try but I feel like the more I try is the more I feel unsatisfied. friends I got, close ones no. do I have someone to hang out with, no. does anyone truly know me in this world not most likely. I know I'm not the only one here who thinks this...

    I love how my friends can accept me

    for who I am when honestly, I really don't know who I am. I love how my friends can accept me for who they think I am.

    If they miss you, they’ll call.

    If they want you, they’ll say it. If they care, they’ll show it. And if not, they aren’t worth your time.

    I never worry about finding the perfect words

    I get mad. I get sad.

    I have all those emotions. But I just like to keep them to myself. I don't think my friends need to be bothered with if I'm mad or sad about something

    There are a lot of things out there

    that none of us understand. If we can believe in God and satan, ghosts and demons, Sasquatch, why not believe in the supernatural beings that you walk by everyday like vampires and werewolves. I am a psychic vampire. I don't have fangs or thirst for human blood but I do feed off...

    I am not a flawless person.

    my mind is a dark place with fire, demons, regrets and holes. I am not a part of any charity events, and I don't volunteer to help with things because I am often too busy mixing lava with cotton candy in my hell. I do not have the perfect job, the perfect family, and the...

    I am an introvert, I find it hard to talk to

    new people, I just don't know what to say. But I want people to be interested in me. I wasn't someone to be fascinated about me and want to know everything about me. Does this make me selfish?

    We want others to accept

    who we are, but sometimes, we, ourselves, have difficulty accepting the real us.

    for me; for my quirky personality and my annoying laugh. I don't like heels and dresses. I'm a jeans, t shirt and slipper girl. I want guys to accept that I burp out loud sometimes for fun and am far from perfect. I want guys to accept my body. I am not a size 5 and I don't care...

    Truth is, no one will.

    Yes I think negatively, but I'm an adult who has been through enough so far that has proven this. It's not "ok" for me and I admit that. But there is no point thinking about how lonely and sad I feel. If it's meant to be, it will be. I'll just keep praying and see what happens...

    None of my friends or family know. I don't have a job but have been trying to get one for a while now. My family is completely homophobic and will kick me out without hesitation. As of now I don't have a support system but I've been working on it. I think about this everyday and...

    I don't act how I think people want me to act.

    I'd rather be alone than be surrounded by people who don't like me for me. I act like myself, and other people don't have to like it. They can leave. Pretending to be different is too tiring ;3

    Since third grade, I was neglected

    for not being like everyone else. I liked video games and drawing, and since I didn't know anything outside my own world, that was all I could talk about. My friends started slowly drifting away. I got quieter. I became the girl who never talks in class. My teachers knew I was...
