    Thoughts that make me feel like a stranger

    I feel like I have two different faces, one I show to the world, and the other haunts me at night when I try to sleep, it get extremly worse when I'm around people or get stressed. These thoughts don't fit my personality in anyway because I know I'm not that kind of person, or even into that kind of thing, (I don't feel like elborating). It's ironic that during the brief moment 'those thoughts'...
