    The world is thick with little white lies.

    Like a thick fog they surround and isolate us. It makes me feel like just an observer in my life. As if this life is just a play and I'm merely playing a role and the events that take place don't effect me. Of course life isn’t a play and I'm not just playing a role. This...

    Having borderline personality disorder makes it

    difficult for others to actually understand the way I am and act. People tend not to stay long enough to understand why I am the way I am. Always left abandoned, which I fear.

    It's a terrible feeling to feel

    so alone in a crowd of people hiding behind a mask of a smile always afraid someone will notice or see thru the mask and ask why? Not really wanting to know so the dance continues until you find the same mask and discover that your not alone
