    Are They Thinking What I'm Thinking?

    My life is basically the same as it was ten years ago. I haven't advanced at all, haven't matured at all really. I'm not saying I'm immature, I'm just not living the life one would expect of a 33 year old. A few years ago, while I worried about what people would think of me...

    I'm Not Good Enough

    Trying

    I want to do it and I am getting better. I grew up mostly being the person who was always away from others (it lead to problems at school, but that's another story) and I am sick of being alone. I have been getting out, but still find myself worrying what is thought of me.
