    What I Need Most

    I wish all the time I had just one real friend who could understand me. One real friend who I could talk with and really open up to. Therapy is not the same thing. It's nice having someone to talk to, but I would much rather have a real friend, someone who could talk to me for...

    Nobody Seems to Understand

    I don't feel as though anyone truly understands me. I am very different from my family so we don't communicate much. My Mom and me talk the most out of the family, but she doesn't understand. Also, i have like 2-3 friends that live in the same area and i wouldn't consider them...

    It's Hard...

    ...but just to have someone in your life that you can express what you need to to them without judgement or ridicule is such a rare commodity these days. I am a very closed book type of a person, but that doesn't mean that I don't need at least one friend that I can be myself...

    My "friends"

    I have two friends that always seem to get rid of people whenever they get tired of them. I did that with them once but I realized how hurtful it was when it happened to me. I wouldn't necessarily call myself nice however. Any way we were friends again until about Halloween when...

    Thankfully

    I have a very close circle of friends who understand me sometimes better than I do myself. I love them and wouldn't trade them for anything. Though, I would like for that group to grow.

    Aloneness

    When I was growing up, I was the type of kid who'd have a best friend and then perhaps a small group of friends. Guess we have less expectations of friends when we're kids, it's more about doing stuff together, playing games, sleeping over, etc. But as my life progressed...

    I Want to Spread Joy

    I want someone, anyone to understand exactly how trippy-ditzy-crazy I actually am. My life goal is to cash in $100 at the bank for pennies and other small coins, keep them in a pretty little velvet bag and walk around my city handing people coins, hugging them, and wishing them...

    Am I Allone In This World ?

    Hi there I don't know were to start, I have been described by others as a deep thinker, a talented man with a heart bigger than my brain, I find it very hard to find people who treat me right or that I can relate to, sometimes I think I am the only one anything like me...

    I Think I Found Some

    They don't laugh at me for who I am. They don't ridicule or chastise me for who I am. They talk to me like I was any other person in the world. They don't laugh or snicker sat me when I tell some of deepest thought. Even the ones they probably don't want to hear when I can't...

    Wish You Could Understand

    In 2009, I decided to take more risks, take chances, and live my life to the fullest. I decided to let go of fear and release the person I desired to be, not who everyone else told me to be. The process has been quite interesting. I regret no experience since they have made me a...
