I feel like a child trapped into a slightly older child's body.

Huh? You don't like what I said I guess? I've no idea what try harder means. Can you tell me how life is going for you?

This is so true. I just made a thread and this is basically what I was trying to say but got it all jumled up.

I feel like a teenager trapped in a teenagers body.

Lucy's bitten
Neck is bleeding bad
The teeth have long departed
Yet the desire burns strong
On in desire for destruction
One on which she'll depend
One that ceases to deepen
Too near bitter end


Black through the mountains
She turns her loosening ring
Guardian angel sings
"I think you've lost your wings, but you're still yours
You're still yours, you're still yours"

I still watch Thundercats. Or, I would except my ex took the DVDs when they left.

I love Society. It is entirely composed now of beautiful idiots and brilliant lunatics. Just what Society should be.

...I used to love thundercats as a child, looking back now though some of those outfits looked like some sort of weird bondage gimp sort of stuff XD






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

I've always felt like this. My school days seem like yesterday. I want to track down and talk to my old schoolmates, but I think they probably don't remember me and have done so many important things since then. I, on the other hand, haven't managed to accomplish much and would seem sad and pitiful. I think I feel like a child because I've never really been able to present myself from anything but a position of subservience. I've found so little respect or admiration in my life, I can't believe I'm grown up. In my marriage I'm definitely beneath my wife. She knows how to get her way and I have not response but to get mad. When I try to be assertive, it most often backfires and I give up. I've never 'won' a haggle over price, so I just give up and pay whatever a seller asks. When I try to sell something, I've never been able to stick to my price... Jeez. I'm just rambling now.

The other day the local radio guy was asking people (to generate content) what they wanted on their tombstone. I couldn't think of anything at the time, and now this morning it came to me. I think I'd put, "I'm glad that's over with".

Im sure there are thousands of people in this world similar to you if not millions. So your not alone.

Keeping a youthful outlook is healthy in a lot of ways. However playing with kids toys in your 20's probaly is not. But you are able to get serious when you need to I assume? You made it through college. Do you have a job as well? If so that shows maturity.

Have you been able to date and carry on adult relationships? If so thats a good sign as well and shows you just dont relate to kids.

I was bullied as well very badly and in screws up your confidence and social skills. So its a good explantation of why you are the way your are right now.

Talk therapy (CBT) may help you or the rights meds. They can have side effects so watch out for them
