Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 22,495 People

    I've never spilled my heart out to someone.

    I really want to. Just tell them all of my secrets and have them understand what I'm going through. But they have to gain my trust.

    Seek To Understand Yourself Before Being Understood

    It has always been my desire to be understood. However only recently I have learned that for others to understand you, you have to understand yourself first! I spend a lot of time reflecting now, on my thoughts, emotions and actions, trying to understand my motives. I feel that...

    If I were to find a honest women

    that knew what she wanted in life, and was able to accept my uniqueness. I believe it would transform my entire life... I only need her to take the first couple of steps, to know she's coming my way, and I would travel the rest, no matter the distance.

    It'S Just Not Going To Happen

    That's all i want. yes i have a laundry list of

    problems, but they don't define who i am. Yes they can make it hard to see ME, but i wish at least one person would at least try to look past it all and love me for who i am not who i am perceived to be

    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...

    I've felt alone for years. I've lived in that sad pitiful world that I made for myself, consisting of heartache, loneliness, sadness and self pity. Oh, I didn't advertise it. People didn't know I felt that way, but if you looked really closely you could see that tiny squint of...

    He Gets Me.

    I've searched for the person who "gets me" for so long. I always came back with my palms up and cupped, though empty. It's different now. I've been on one hell of an excursion and I've finally found whom I've always been looking for. I am understood. And I...

    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...
