    I feel like I have nowhere to turn,

    so here I am. I feel spoiled for wanting someone to understand me, because I have two parents who want to help me. But I feel like no matter how hard I try I can't make them understand my feelings. My parents were/are both mental health professionals. And yet I have never felt...

    I don't think people understand how stressful

    it is to explain what's going on in your head when you don't even understand it yourself.

    who understands what it feels like to be living a "good" life so to speak (middle class I guess) despite having lived through poverty, family drug abuse, domestic violence, and the loss of my best friend/role-model/father figure at a young age... It could even just be someone...

    It's sometimes hard not to be understood.

    Some people judge and they will be against you. They make a big deal out of nothing. It's tiring already.

    What Being a Big Sister Really Means.

    It seems to me that no one can understand why I CAN'T ever leave where I live.  At least not for a long time.  I actually love the area I live in, it was voted best place to live in America last year.  But I could give that up, I'm sure there are places that are...

    I don't even understand myself sometimes.

    Wish a lot of things were different but they're not, I suck it up and try to get on with everything but no one seems to see my view on anything. Wish I had that one person to just share things with, keep me company while I'm stuck here feeling like this.

    Artist

    I want to be with a guy who is an artist, who draws all the time, just for fun and see's the world in a completely different way from other people. Because then I know we would see the world in a similar way. And he could truly understand me.

    Maybe it's just me but I feel

    that when it comes to talking about what you're feeling and what you're going through to people is overrated. I think it's overrated because in my circumstances anyway, they don't understand at all. Is it just me?

    Does Anyone Else Do This?

    I often intentionally give people reason to judge or reject me, in order to weed out those who are going to do so in advance. It's a defense mechanism, I guess. But I think the dream scenario is for a person to see through the false impressions I'm giving them and...
