    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 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 constantly feel like No one knows me.

    I feel like The whole world is speaking in morse code and I somehow got handed a different booklet. Some people, like my partner, know how to deal with me and help to make things better. But I know that no one seems to understand the way I think, or how I do things, or try to...

    It cuts me down, sometimes.

    The misconceptions, the failed communication. Drags me further into isolation. And I 'just' KNOW everyone else in that ****** classroom feels the same way. Under everyone of those anxious teens is a person hoping to be understood.

    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...

    Miss Understood

    Hi. I am Steph and I am new to this website. I am not sure what kind of story I should share that won't bore everyone to death. Well, I do feel misunderstood by almost everyone around me--- my family and friends, my lover, my co-workers, and even just random people I don't even...

    I feel like I don't belong here.

    Not just that I don't fit in to any social clique or anything like that. I don't really mind being unique in that nature. But, I have this strange sensation that I am on the wrong plane of existence, like I should be on another planet or in another dimension. No one, not even I...

    I hate when I open up to someone,

    and they turn their back on you. It's like, YOU asked ME why I was sad and felt lonely...and then you run away as fast as you can..I'm sorry that I'm a freak and that you don't like me. I can't change my past! So seriously...I don't wanna be judged.. I want to be understood, and...

    Everytime I try, I always end up being the

    'problem.' I just wish you guys would care. Whenever I try to explain, it blows up in my face and then you wonder why I get so emotional. You could try harder. I am. I'm maturing slowly everyday but you don't see it. I need help being fixed and you just think I should be okay...

    I don't know if you can ever be fully

    understood--but I would like to think it a possibility. I would settle for a good 50% of understanding at this point.

    I am afraid that I do not communicate in a

    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...
