"She seems like a whore"
But I--
"You're kind of bitchy"
People say I'm--
"He's cheating with you, isn't he?"
What are you--
"You act like such a slut"
I haven't even--
"You sure you're not a lesbian"
Yes!  I--
"God, you're so lazy"
I am not! I--
"You never take anything seriously!"
Maybe, but I--



"You're, like, a 9 on the scale"
What? I--
"You're so nice all the time"
I try--
"I never knew you were so deep"
There's a lot of--
"You're what this place is missing"
You really think--
"You're always so optimistic"
Well, yeah, I--
"Everyone loves you"
Are you--
"I think you'll go far"
I dont know--


You ask me what I'm talking about
When I seem so so confused
Why won't you just make up your mind, everybody
It's not like I've got something left to lose
I'm beaten down and brought back up
Now, every single day
Is this some sick trick
People like to play
I used to understand so much
Until everyone became so blunt
What's happening to the world
How could honesty hurt that much?
Why is the truth so confusing?
Can't anyone agree on something?
I don't understand whats happening
Things used to be under control
Now the world is shaking
The ceiling and floor
They constantly switch places
What's happening
What's happening
Please someone, please
Tell me what's happening
IS this the answer to my wish
To understand, to know
What people think of me
I've become more of just one person
So why so many mixed responses
They all tend to meet the same girl
What's happening
What's happening
Please someone, please
Tell me what's happening
Explain this thing to me
I need to figure out
What it is I'm doing wrong
I'm beautiful, and full of light
I'm horrible, brimming with spite
Are these the two things people
Actually choose to see
When they take a look inside of me
I dont understand
I just dont understand
I need to figure this thing out
But I don't think I can
BEcause none of it makes any sense
So I'm caught within the crossfire
Trapped within the battlefield
Bullet slamming into me
At machine gun speed
But all at the same time
There's gifts raining onto me
Declarations of love
Declarations of hate
THey're the only things
That fill my days
What's happening
What's happening
Please someone please
Tell me what's happening
What flipped this switch?
This has never happened before
What is it about the middle of march
That drags me into the fray
I was finally reaching peace
But now all I have is madness
What's happening
What's happening
Please, someone, please
Tell me what's happening

hmmm...that was somehow touching me ....., too

i have to find out why i can relate to that so much .....?

But in general if you are troubled you just have to listen to your feelings and follow them i guess ......
but sometimes alone things in life are hard to manage ....

Your lucky people bother to talk to you at all... Me, people don't even think me important enough to start a conversation with.

The fact that people will come up to you to praise you or spite at you, means the in some way, Respect you

People lie awake at night, crying, wishing to be noticed enough to be hated... be happy that you to the world, exist

i dont know you or how is your life,but im going to give you a tip.assuming from your comment that nobody gives you attention,heres what you do:
they dont give you attention because youre asking for it.youre coming from a needy place of social status and you seek their approval, and nothing kills social status faster than neediness,hence nobody wants to give you attention.
stop asking for approval.human beings are really good at perceiving whether youre needy or not without saying a word due to thousands of years of evolution.
again i dont know nothing about your life but the way you feel is probably an issue youve struggling with.maybe low self esteem,a bad breakup,betrayal,etc.which reflect on your behavior in a social environment.
if you feel like your social skills are bad and that is one of the reasons,read a book on that,a good book that ive read is "How to Talk to Anyone 92 Little Tricks for Big Success in Relationships"(you can get a copy without trading money for it,not saying you should)
see why you feel that way,work on getting self esteem ,dont seek other approval and read the book.it will do wonders

Well, I don't know if this is what is going on inside your mind, but assuming it is, there is only really one thing to say - STOP! 

Stop letting other people define who you are.  Shut it out.  Look within, listen to yourself, be guided by your own intuition. 

There are so many people in this world projecting their shit onto others in this world.  A lot of their shit is very ill developed, based on stereotypes, assumptions without the background knowledge to base them on, little boxes they want to put the world into because they are lazy thinkers.  No way do you want to be forced into one of those boxes!  You'd never fit, never be happy there.

People like to direct the energy of other people in order to facilitate their own power.  Don't let them!

The best companions in life are the ones who simply walk beside you on their own journey, allowing you to simply unfold yours as you see fit.  It's your right, it's everyone's right.

Glad you found it useful.  I can really relate to how you were feeling and it took me a long time to figure out to just let that stuff go.  Even now, occasionally, it builds up on me, because that is the nature of the world we live in.  The world is always challenging us to stand strong within ourselves :heart:
