I Why Am I So Different From Everyone Else

    Ever since I was little I've been a complete

    perfectionist. I literally over think everything to the point where I can't control myself. I do diving and high jump in track. I have a really hard time with diving because I can't do half my skills because all I do is think about every single thing that could possibly happen...

    I'm different. Very different.

    I may be human, yet I don't understand other humans. I don't understand why they feel love. Why they are scared of death, and other people dying. I don't know how to love. I used to love my family, but now... I just don't any more. I honestly could care less whether they die or...
