    If Only...

    I've always had friends, but never the ones I could tell everything I really want to say to them.. Having friends is nice I guess, but having someone who actually understands you and not just say yeah I know how you feel, when they don't know how I feel. No one does, not even my...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    For a long time now I've wished I had a small group of good friends I could chat to about anything. It's something I've been missing all my life. I've always felt alone and rarely had people to hang out with. Just having one or two good friends I could meet regularly, go places...

    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...

    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...

    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...
