    Do You Understand?

    Even around people I seem to have things in common with, I still feel like the oddball out. I don't ever feel like anyone just "gets" me. It's probably mostly my fault for being shy. Or because I don't truly understand my own self. But it gets lonely when you're the...

    More Often

    More often than not, try explaining to someone that you don't fit it and you get some sort of conciliatory speech that while well meant; borders on condescending. I've rarely been understood by my peers and by society at large. People tell you get a hobby, get an activity etc. If...

    It Pains A Lot

    I have lived a very good life where people love me. But, now most of them hate me with the rumours and lies they heard. Most of them, dont even know me in my school and they hate me without knowing who I really am. I want people to love me by knowing me entirely. If they hate me...

    I am afraid that I do not communicate in a

    manner that I am easily understood by others. I have struggled with this for so many years and it has hurt some of my most important relationships along the way. I have a good vocabulary. Dare I say better than many. I understand nuances and texture of words. I do not write...

    I was talking to a friend about how we see the

    world. She loves pictures of sunsets with encouraging texts overlaid on, and I wish dearly to have never been born. We have different perspectives, which is usually fine and frequent, but for some reason I was getting frustrated as we continued to discuss. I realize hours...

    I've felt at times like this is the anthem to

    my life whenever my depression tries to get the best of me. It's amazing how something so sad and confusing could be expressed with such beautiful and relatable words: Ain't no use in calling up your friends Ain't no use in hiding in your bed And ain't no use in standing on...
