    I'm writing this so I get things off my chest

    and hopefully I'll have the courage to post this on my Facebook wall. You see I'm not who I really am now... And I've come to notice that I'm all alone and nothing's gonna change unless I do something about it. So this is my first step My name is Nic. As a kid, I was that one...

    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?

    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.

    I never worry about finding the perfect words

    I really wish that i knew how to be

    who I am without being so misunderstood!!! Why are we perceived by others one way, and within ourselves another. I try to be a good person in everything, but not sure I really am? On the day of judgement God will look at the heart and he will know if we are good are bad I think...

    for someone that didn't work, I will always be me. At least I don't have the stress of trying to impress!

    I'm in my early 20s and haven't come out yet.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    lost. I thought that I had gotten better socially, and at making friends, but my new job has shown me otherwise. I am always picked last when we have to pair up and I'm still eating my lunches alone. My boyfriend tells me that I should make more friends, but I don't feel like I...

    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

    Two years ago, I weighed 150 pounds.

    I am 5'6" female, and like my body at most weights, as long as I am medically healthy. My family and especially cousins are athletes, either for work, or to bodybuild. I respect this, and enjoy going to the gym once and a while for leisure, but am definitely not as active...was...

    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.

    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...

    Everyone hates me. I always hesitate

    before I get out of bed. I can't even walk out the door without thinking twice if I want to walk into a world full of haters. NO one accepts me and no one will. I have become a different person to be accepted. I'm not completely sure of who I am anymore.

    I don't want to get out of bed,

    I'm tired of feeling inadequate, unwanted, undesired. Once I get up I have to face those feelings, yet staying in bed I feel safe all snuggled up in my cozy blanket fortress. I am a strong, loving, patient, and intelligent person. I shouldn't feel this way.

    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...

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