I Want to Be Understood By Just One Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 22,543 People

    Well, more than one in an ideal world.

    But I'll settle for just one person who truly understands. Not someone who says they understand when they don't really.

    Finding a true loyal friend is

    What is it about people?

    They rush to pigeonhole you, and they move on. It's like EP people. The majority might just add you, ogle your photos, then ignore you the rest of the time. They don't want to try understand you, of how your life differs from theirs. They don't worry about understanding you...

    Please just once in this world,

    before I die, At this time or ever it doesn't happen for me, I never know a subject very well to know what I am talking about (sarcasm), if you ask anyone who knows me personally. I come across to honest for most people, I am rude, blunt, obnoxious, I try not to be loud but can...

    I have a boyfriend and he is amazing.

    I hate to say this but he was everything Patrick wasn't. Patrick and I are good friends now but I will never be able to feel for him anymore the way I feel for my boyfriend. Abut it seems like they were both missing the factor of me. Understanding

    Am I Being Too Fussy?

    I don't want to believe

    that this will happen to me anymore. I'm tired of looking for someone to understand me. I'm tired of meeting people and think that they think likewise and then be forsaken and backstabbed. I wanted to live my life as a loner and be able to enjoy my moments like I used to do, but...

    Feeling stupid for thinking it was real!

    Hate when my mind lives in a fantasy instead of in reality! Just want to be loved and understood by someone who wants and needs me as much as I want and need them!! Stupid mistake, hate this feeling of dread!!

    I think that's one of the most difficult tasks

    to thrive in, is to fully understand somebody. It simply can't be done. Yes, you can understand their emotion(s), but you'll never fully understand why and what makes them feel that way. I'd prefer somebody I can openly talk to. Somebody who doesn't judge, and would listen to...
