    Re: What people think

    All the advice here is good. I'm largely with Redglitter: I doubt you ever really get over the truly bad stuff from your childhood. All you can do is learn to live with it - and some people will love, admire and respect you for that.

    My reason for adding to this thread though is to point out that the tensions this creates in your life can be used to produce art. Spot mentioned the stage. I'd suggest painting and writing as other alternatives, a "cry created as the bow of sin/ Is drawn across our trembling violin." as WH Auden said (if I've remembered it right).

    And what better response to abuse than to create beauty from it?

    Don't be worried about what people think ..its their loss . People often make assumptions ..thats their mistake . Be honest ..don't hurt people and love yourself.

I don't " follow" fashion but most people do. ), and I don't act like other people ( I don't go with the flow. I go on my " own flow". )

    Everytime someone tells me I'm wierd because I'm not like everyone else, I always think, " Why should I be like everyone else ? What is the purpose of that (really ?) I can't be like everyone else because I'm not them. I'm me ! I can only be me, not someone else. "

    As for what people think of you ( especially when it's negative), I guess the only advice that I can give you is to love yourself. Just tell yourself that these negative people have a problem and you're not ( NOT !) going to let their problem be your problem because they're just not worth it.
    well i always heard if you have$$$ then you are ECCENTRIC. If you are POOR, your just PLUM CRAZY like me

    Re: What people think

    i havent been out of my flat in 9 days,1st time was today i waited till dark ran to the nearest shop, for some bread and Milk .
    3 people saw me that was enough, i looked at no one.

    my fear is im getting worse by the day, and can also feel my phyisical health getting worse, some of you no my problems and may understand a little.

    other who have never experienced this recognised illness can never understand
    it becomes to be on your mind 24hrs aday..the fear of what people may think

    i dont think ill be going back out for a while.
