    When people see me, they probably just

    immediately think "oh he lives in this town so he must have a great life" but of course they're wrong. At one point I finally had a person... But now I can't talk to them ever again. She was selfish, I was stupid, and now it honestly just isn't worth my time. There's just...

    Someone is getting to know me a lot and when no one understands, this person does. People call me weird, and crazy, and random, but this person always takes my side. Wish all my friends were like that. I am spilling my guts every chance I get. I hope complete understanding is in...

    Life's been difficult

    and stressful. But I am blessed in many ways. I want to find that point in life were I can just sit back and laugh, cry, and teach the wrongs I have done from the past and make a difference. :)

    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.

    so much, is a crazy junkie and my family is kicking her out and it hurts when I see her doing drugs (crystal meth, crack, cocain, crack-cocaine, and extacsy) and she has had a suicidal past so I don't know if it's because she it depressed or something

    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...

    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?
