I Wish People Saw Things Through My Eyes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,654 People

    I feel like I look at life differently

    than almost everyone I know. I am an emotional person, and i overthink so many things... i think people think im crazy because i think differently than a lot of other people. but honestly it doesnt bother me because i try not to care about what others think.

    See the beauty in things

    as well as people. I try to look for positive things and try to focus less on the negative things. It's been a hard transition when you're born and raised with a certain mindset. But as we get older and more mature, we start to understand more, and appreciate more.

    Of course there are times

    when it would be the last thing id want someone to do! But most of the time i have a way of seeing things that seem to be different than people in general. We all have a different view of the world and im definitely not saying the way i see it is the best but it would be nice to...

    Through The Seeing Glass

    Sometimes I wonder if people really see how it is around them. Sitting book in hand glasses in the tip of my nose. Silence. Nothing slipping pass my lips. Laughter fake smiles or real ones. When I'm in my world I looks over my glasses to only see my fake reality. But if I really...

    life. I'm ready to start making that change that will get me what I have been waiting for all this time! Like this miniature horse has stolen my huge heart. And he's only an hour away from me. I'd go in a heartbeat to pick him up and bring him home. It's disturbing that I don't...

    Sometimes when I explain things to people,

    they can't understand why I feel the way I do. It's extremely bothersome but unfortunately it's an unsolvable problem. I wish everybody understood one another. There would be so much less discord.

    I hurt. I hurt even when I'm happy.

    All the other girls lie. They hurt each other. It hurts everyone in the process. They call their BFFs ******* and *****. If they could see it through my eyes everyone would stop, they would not have all the girl drama.

    Why is it that no matter what I do,

    say, or think someone has to comment that it's weird or stupid? Like can't you just accept it and leave it alone. I'm not you, I do things different, things that you don't do. Shouldn't that be ok? I just want people to accept me and everything that comes with being me.

    We get tied up in our lives. We see things as they are to US. And that is the problem. Things are not based on a set of hard and fast rules. They are based on emotions. So it is not so much how you see, but how you FEEL. We both can see the same sunset, but depending on our mood...

    your viewpoint unless they could actually go through it themselves, or they actually look through your eyes. But most people don't try to do that, and won't consider what you feel is serious to them, but to you it's very serious. It just depends if the person can be very open...
