I love philosophy. Every and all types of philosophy. I love to learn. I love Novelty and hate anything that is repetitive. I love being stumped and I love clever jokes. I love to genuinely discuss things with people, I hate pleasantries. I love to hear people gloat about their accomplishments, I hate to hear them brag about their lots in life.

I love to be critical about everything that can be controlled.

To most people I think I come off as either extremely boring or overwhelmingly astringent.

I see you as being very intense, i don't see boring tho. I second the part about pleasantries. Absolutely hate them, i mean don't open the door for me and get pissed if i don't feel like saying thank you.

Well that type of pleasantry is fine, and I appreciate it. I mean more in the case of : "Wow! you look awesome! Did you lose weight!? I love your hair cut!" I find them pointless and they kind of fall into my hating repetitive things category. They are basically stock phrases people say to break the ice, I prefer it when people just get to the point.

I hate those too, but in my case my anger relates to people who do things solely to hear appreciation for it. I say it sometimes but at times i don't feel like talking,

Sure. I talk to a guy online because I secretly hate my life and want to die. I'm so lonely and I feel like I'm a failure. That guy online who talked to me for almost 4 years now hates me because I care about him too much (to be expected when I'm so lonely) and it's possible he feels the same since there's been times where he's done things that totally didn't make sense to me at the time but turned out to be his way of looking after me from way over in the country he's in. Despite that maybe being true, it bloody hurts. My Dad's an asshole to my mum, always has been; hitting her and verbally abusing her. And when it gets too much, I drink. I used to cry every night when I was younger. Going to fail my exams and struggling alone is really feeding my ongoing loneliness. Don't even know if I want to try anymore because all my past efforts have been in vain. I'm ok on the outside and wear a mask to college everyday but inside I'm really sad. I'm not the saddest person on the planet but I am painfully sad.

Unlike other people, I don't think I have a particular difficulty in expressing my emotions to people but I refrain from doing so because I know they can't handle it.

Thanks for this post, I've been looking for a forum to write this on, it's just nice to share problems with people you'll never have to meet.


I'm no expert at life, but I have a few things to say. The person you talk to online is obviously not worthy of being your friend, there is no reason for someone like that to hate you. The loneliness I can understand because I have been there, and still sometimes am there. One tip of advice I can give you is to stay strong when life knocks you down, get back up and hit it 10x harder.

If you ever need a friend I'm here, and so are many others.

Often times, a lot of people will keep a part of them away from everyone else. They will hide it and keep it inside, it is best just to let it out.

Whether it is pain, sadness, happiness, regret, anger or even hatred.

Let it all out here.

Please be respectful to others. ^^

If you're looking for what I hold back, it is often anger. Not anger at one individual thing but everything I see that is wrong, but it is impossible to hold everything back.


By the way, you can't just create this topic, read about everyone's life and not say anything about yourself :).


I'm not the greatest at speaking, especially about myself, that's my greatest weakness.
Part of the reason why I created this thread.

I don't really hide much of anything. I don't wear my emotions on my shoulder, but that is because I am not the type to let emotions control me. If anyone were to ask I would tell them exactly what I feel/think. If it becomes enough of a problem I will let people know how I feel without forcing upon them my intensity.

There are 2 things I generally hide, based on the situation to certain people.

1: Pain, I will not show or admit to pain if it means less work for me or more pain on someone else. My grandfather who I work doing plumbing for is the type of person who if he found out I was working through a painful injury would give me way too much time off.

2: I am far more perverted than anyone ever gives me credit for. I suppose that's a by-product of my composure. I don't have much of a reason to hide it... but it is sometimes convenient to play dumb.

I like helping others but the more I reach out to others the more I feel like I'm the one who needs help. Strange how that works.

I tend to hide my depression and anxiety, my fears, and my lack of hope that things will get better, opting instead for something of a facade of confidence and optimism. When I'm not in the throes depression, I can actually be optimistic and hopeful, but those times seem very strange and foreign to me when I am.

There are things that I won't open up about here, no matter how much I want to.

I enjoy having the characters I play in Video Games resemble me. Not really because I like the way I look, but more because it becomes easier for me to immerse myself in the world then. I guess you can say that I enjoy being myself, and don't really want to be anyone else.

My Asura (Guild Wars 2) on the left there has the same hair style/color, eye/color, and approximately the same nose shape as I do.

I'm not bad with expressing myself. I'm quiet and often alone, but mostly because I'm withdrawn. I'm actually very blunt and have a bunch of friends, but don't feel the need to always be with them. I often go out of my way to be there for my friends and listen to their troubles, but I'm a bit of a hypocrite. Because the second something serious goes wrong in my life, I hide it. I try to deal with it on my own for the most part, and the problems I do end up telling the majority of my friends are just day to day stresses. I know I should open my heart to them more. I should trust them the way they've trusted me.

I don't really know how people perceive me...they always say I'm quiet but nice (as if being quiet is bad) and weird XD I don't know what they mean by "weird"

How do I see myself? I'm too negative and hateful towards myself so I better not go there.

Right now I'm in college and I am one of those people who procrastinates a lot, by a lot I mean A LOT. Im Majoring in arts and its working very well for me I've won a few competitions and I've lost a few but I did get to see many styles and talent from other artists out there.During my free time I take naps/sleep and watch/read anime but mostly Dream about my life. When I hangout with my friends I start out quiet but end up being very lively when it starts going. Im planning on getting my act together to set an example for those younger than me ( especially in this day and age where there aren't many good role models ) So I'm starting with my procrastination habits and so forth. P.S a word of advice always live each day without any regrets because anything can happen and you might not get that second chance to make a difference.
