I don't understand why people judge me without even getting to know me. People are supportive and kind here, but there are many places where I am rejected. I use some form of the word sarcastic in a lot of my screen names on sites, so people think I never get hurt. I am sensitive but I have dealt with pain by using humor. I have done this for most of my life. But then people assume that nothing should ever get to me, even when people insult me, because I can come back with a snappy comeback. If I wasn't able to laugh and make jokes, I would have been gone a long time ago. Yes, sometimes I can't cope, and I need to let my feelings out. But when I am judged, that makes it even harder for me to open up. Yes, I use humor as a coping mechanism, but that doesn't make me a cold and unfeeling bitch. I'm just tired of having to explain myself just by not being happy all of the time.
