The thing about emotions is that they are very easy to confuse.

What's more, when emotions are strong or jumbled and there are other people involved... One can never be sure if the emotions they see in other people are there own or a projection of the emotions inside of them.

An echo if you will.

This is particularly trying when one starts dealing in text messages and or emails. After all, printed words don't convey tone or sarcasm well. So when in an ambiguous situation with one person that could possibly lead to tenseness with others... The mind gets stuck trying to find the hidden underlying meanings in everything. Even in situations where a sentence could just be a sentence... It's troublesome.

This is why it is better to make friends with people individually rather then in groups.

That or I'm still giving refuge to the insecure little girl from elementary.
