Yeah, that's how I feel. Actually, I feel like nobody really knows me and everyone knows each other plenty of places in real life, including with my best freinds. I'm not on YWP but I've wanted to join. The compliment thing makes me feel a bit sad because it's just the same people who have gotten complimented but yah, for me I really mean when I make a thread, it dies pretty quickly. I once made a thread that has, like, 50 comments but it died after, like, a week, maybe a but more. *sigh*

I totally get that. Honestly, in real life I'm pretty different from on here. I moved to a new country a few years ago, and I feel like I don't have any good friend here and all my old friends are drifting away. Sometimes I only feel known and understood when I'm here, on the CB. But it took a really long time to feel that way, so don't worry if you don't feel like that yet. <3 

I have so many threads that are absolute DUDS. My first thread was a super cringy poem that did NOT need its own thread. But I don't think anyone on the CB remembers that or judges me for it. The CB is a place to express yourself, and I'm sorry you feel like you can't do that. Whoever you are, I'm thankful you're on the CB! <3

I want to clarify: I'm not the anpnymous who made this thread. Just realized that that person is called anonymous too. Actually, I'm very similar on here then I am in real life. I've never moved. Also, my social skills are pretty awful. It's like. there are "rules" but there also really aren't any so I don't think there is and if I followed them would that make me like everyone else? sorry about that, it's just annoying. I think the slight sadness I feel when all my threads are forgotten is a CB thing but the left out thing goes beyond that. I'm fine though, don't worry. :)

I moved to a different town the summer between my 4th and 5th grade year. I stopped having a crush on my 4th grade crush like over a year after I last saw him. It was partly because whenever anyone asked me wo my crush was I could just say "you don't know him, he's from my old school."

Um i have ocd. and it's really weird because sometimes i have really weird thoughts that i can't control, and it made me feel really bad and I actually cried about it in public and my mom didn't even care to explain anything about it to me until after that episode, and even though I know i have it, i still feel really guilty about it when I have that kind of stuff happen to me. so that's my life's curse.

Listen. I really don't know a lot about ocd, but I do have a friend who has it, and I love her just the same. You shouldn't feel guilty about things that happen to you that are beyond your control. And I understand that you may think of it as a curse, but don't. It's part of who you are. You were made that way for a reason, and you are beautiful and spectacular just the way you are. Keep on keeping on, and give yourself a break every once in a while. You deserve it. <3

Don't feel guilty at all! I was diagnosed with OCD a while ago, and I definitely agree that it feels like a curse. But it's not! It's just a quirk that makes you unique! A lot of people say things like "I'm so OCD" and that made me feel bad a lot of times because they can't begin to know what's happening in your head. If you have close freinds, though, and you feel comfortable talking to them, they might be able to help. My OCD was really, really bad for a few months, but therapy helped, and now I hardly have and compulsive thoughts at all! Talk to your mom about seeing a therapist and stay calm! Nothing is forever.

I might actually have ocd, because whenever i see something awesome and i make up my mind that its awesome, my brain is just like 'no its not awesome its horrible' and it legit feels like a curse :(

I am about 6 feet tall, and people are like "Wow, is she 19?' and one time, I was just walking around at the pet store and a few times in the last two years people actually thought I WORKED there!

And another one: I am OBSESSED with anything that has to do with cute boys, AND I want to be famous, because, he-LLO!! If I DIE when I'm older, people that's not part of my family won't even notice and/or care!!! Unless I get murdered or something, BUT I WANT TO BE KNOWN TO THE WORLD AS EITHER AN ACTRESS OR A WRITER OR BOTH, IT DOSEN'T REALLY MATTER TO ME!!!! Welll, actually it kinda does.
