What is something no one knows about you?

Starrlight profile image

Haha this is a good one but a hard one, eh? Like if no one knows it maybe there’s a good reason for it. But I thought it would be fun.

Hmmmm then again there’s probably a LOT of little things we have not bothered to tell anyone. Now if we can just remember them...

I wish my eyes changed colors with my mood. I used to throw worry dolls out the window in the hopes the worries would go away with them. I love to organize, like, anything. Nothing too exciting i know haha! Maybe someone else will have a juicy one 😂

Hey amazing you ❤️ 🌻 ❤️ ⭐️

I hate messes to the point where I get angry if everything is not cleaned. And I don’t know if I want kids because of that. I like doing the cleaning on my own cause I can’t relax if it gets done by someone else since my minds keep telling me they’re not doing it right(only exception is my mother)

❤️ ❤️ ❤️ I hear ya! It’s hard as a mom to not have things how I want and it messes with me a lot but I’ve learned to compromise my wishes with their messiness and I make my spaces.

When we were little wee ones, I used to get in bed with my brother whenever I had a nightmare. Even though we slept on opposite ends I always made sure that he was ahead and I had my body to the wall. My logic was the big bad monster would eat him up and his screams would give me enough time to run away...lol

I remember similar scary beliefs and it’s interesting how I never asked for help... I just tried to stay as still as possible so the creepers might pass me by.

If I'm being honest, sometimes I'm still afraid of the dark, even as an adult. I literally couldn't sleep by myself until well into adulthood. So I guess that's my thing. I dont know if nobody knows about it, but it's definitely on the more vulnerable side. Do I feel embarrassed? I think I used to, but not anymore.

Starrlight in reply to Jilly87

I’m glad you aren’t embarrassed because we all have our things we are afraid of. ((((((( Jilly))))))) ❤️ ⭐️

🤣😂😂🤣😂😅🤣😂Nice try, Starlight.There's things about me I'm not telling.

That's why no one knows.

Starrlight in reply to Isinatra

That reminds me of how my mom, she used to do similar like wash out plastic sandwich bags and stuff to use again

My grandma used to save paper bags and would iron them so they looked new!

Very clever, your grandma. Truly a family secret. 🤫

I'm cracking up with this thread

Ok thought of one. I cannot pull a loo brush out of its holder. In my flat in London one was left behind and it took me around 3 years to pluck up the courage to remove it once but never did it again.

This comes from as a kid my mother pulled one out and this huge hairy black spider ran out too. She hated spiders and screamed so I did too. :D

Omg 😱 huge hairy black spider! I can just imagine you screaming after her 😆 Loo brushes scare me too!!!

Jilly87 profile image
Jilly87 in reply to Starrlight

Well I wasnt afraid of them - grossed out for sure - but I'll have to reconsider. I'm absolutely TERRIFIED of spiders. I can handle VERY tiny ones, but most are horrible. I go into fight or flight, I get chills, goosebumps, hair stands on end. I wish there was some sort of treatment for the severe fear I feel, because I sware it feels painful...but I'm scared the treatment might involve purposely going near the darn things. Heck, even writing about it now is eeking me out.

Starrlight profile image
Starrlight in reply to Jilly87

There is treatment for it actually for phobias they gradually introduce the thing you are afraid of until you are used to it.

When I was in kindergarten I would open an insect book with spider pics in the book and scream. My teacher got mad and said to stop it. I said ok. I opened the book again and screamed. She would become furious but it was book time abd this was my book I couldn’t help it 😆

Oh, I wear my thick socks inside out. The outside is softer. 🙃

I do the same when I have a pair that's really uncomfortable, because sometimes the seams poke into my feet and I cant handle it. Glad I'm not the only one! 😊

This made me laugh so much. I love laughing. I don't know if this counts. I don't know how to pump gas in my car. I never learned and I don't want to

Ok Dolphin, come clean….how does the gas get from the pump into your gas tank?😎We won’t tell.

Dolphin14 profile image
Dolphin14 in reply to Isinatra

I live in a town that won't let you pump your own. There was an incident many years ago at a gas station where someone got hurt.Guess I can't move too far away from here lol.

Lol Well, blow me over…a town that actually thinks of safety for their residents. I’ve been looking for a new place to live, possible neighbor.

Dolphin14 in reply to Isinatra

I know.... this is not common at all. I grew up in this town and worked here. I did spend time in a couple different places but my job was right up the street from a gas station. I've been able to skate by:)

My Dad was from Connecticut but also lived in Mass as well. He used to say the word orange like it was pronounced are-ange. It was so funny I still giggle when I think about it. I really miss him. He passed away in 2013 from cancer. Maybe if I can get to sleep I can see him in my dreams. It's been a while.

Accents are funny. I know someone that says Ant instead of Aunt. That one makes me laugh.

Oh I'm sorry for your loss. My sister died of cancer in 2016. It's hard

I spent the first five years of my life thinking I was a puppy

Dolphin14 in reply to Plunked

I love puppies :) 🦴🦴

What breed were you?

🐬

Plunked profile image
Plunked in reply to Dolphin14

Well, I had to live with relatives when I was about a year old until I was 4, and they had three house dogs, all mixed breeds, and like ten hunting dogs they kept outside/in a garage. (Not condoning how these people took care of their dogs. Even as a small child, I thought it was fucked up to have so many dogs that they really only interacted with to go hunting. But I also saw the contrast in treatment from the inside dogs.)

Anyway, I bonded with the three indoor dogs, because these relatives didn't really watch after me. The dogs did. (My mom was terminally ill so she couldn't take care of me at the time and trusted her Aunt and Uncle.) I'd sleep in their bed, I'd follow them around on all fours, drink their water, but I always fixed myself some cereal because the dog food smelled gross. I would be there when the younger female dog would have pups. When I eventually moved back with my mom, (she was able to beat her colon cancer), I actually got to take one of the puppies years later.

I pictured myself to look like Gypsie, who was the size of a mini doberman, but had the typical pattern of a dalmatian. So slightly floppy ears, kinda like a pound puppy, I guess.

Thank you for sharing that story. I would have been just as upset with the dogs getting different treatment. The poor working dogs needed the love too.

You were a cute one, a pound puppy :)

I'm glad to hear your mom got better. You were so young you needed her

School. 😅 Kindergarten. I actually use to hiss at people, which, yes, dogs don't hiss, but I think I thought the hissing was scarier than my bark. Never bit a kid though. 😁

Isinatra profile image
Isinatra in reply to Plunked

I’m glad you can look back and see some humor in being a puppy that hissed.😁I liked to ride imaginary horses. Got quite good at replicating a whinny.🤫

When I have too many strawberry daiquiris, I get on all fours and bark like a dog.🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫

Hi everyone, I've been quiet for a while but am progressing and do read your comments, for those that wish and if I am suitable I would gladly write and chat/support if it helps. Re something no one else knows? apart from close family- during the fireman strikes in 70's/80's as a policeman I rescued five adults and children from a flat fire in London. Glad they do not know really but these are about the only things about me. Oh, and I like climbing trees (even now at 67). Take care all.

Jilly87 in reply to lewis1

So, what you're saying is, your answer could have been three words... I'm a hero. Well, three words plus however many it takes to say you love climbing trees. I could count, but it's 4:30 am. 😁

Dolphin14 in reply to lewis1

Excellent work. 👮🏻‍♀️

I love to watch the treeclimbers that take down trees. It fascinates me. What type of trees do you climb?

🐬

Hi lewis1. I am retired from a police department in the U.S. for 26 years….I live in another state and I don’t mention this….they’d never guess by looking at this 63 yr old grandma!

when im eating something really tasty like cheese cake or baked stuff shrimp (2 of my fav foods) i keep it in my mouth as long as i can without swallowing just to keep the good taste in my mouth.

I grew up in Virginia. Some family said “ant” and others say “aunt”. “Ant” has always made me smile!

Sadly nothing juicy here. Just that I do sleep with my 61 year old Teddy Bear. Well, he doesn't Snore, Fidget, or get up um-teen times for the Toilet! 🐻

Starrlight in reply to Dubba61

Love it!!!!! 🥰

I can’t say it

I have to constantly work on being happy for someone rather than jealous & wanting to see them fail if they have something I wish I had. My natural reaction is the immediate tinge of jealousy & I have to consciously change it.

I understand that. ❤️ Best to you.

Thank you for saying that.

You’re welcome. I wish I could help more.

Often if I rub my foot because it itches or something I have to balance it out by rubbing the other foot the same way. The same goes if I scratch my knee or hand, rub my forehead, something of that nature.

I’ve done the same kind of things symmetrical ocd type habit yeah.

Can't say, because it is a bad thing... And also I a bit of an untidy collector of items 😂😂

the I have a bad thing and I’ll say it...someone does know it but hardly anyone... when I was a teen growing up I hung out with a group of friends and somehow we got into stealing cars... yeah... crazy right... do you believe it? I am a good person I swear I just had a get into trouble phase!... um a lot of them ... 😞

I wish I could float in the clouds. My mind assumes that it would be calming relieve stress 🙂

Sounds perfect to me yeah I can picture it being calming free having the suffering stop

I get clumsy when I'm anxious. I literally walked with a cup of coffee but instead of holding it upright I had it tilted so that coffee was dripping down my shirt. Real class. How do you explain yourself? It feels good to have hot liquid go down your shirt. Mm mm good

Ouch that’s rough... sorry that you go through it...there are many things that I just can’t explain to others like when I’m anxious and I meet someone it doesn’t click in I’m off somewhere else so I could meet you like five times and still not know who you are if you happen to keep catching me at very anxious moments ugh 🤦‍♀️

Such an interesting question. There are so many things about me no one knows. I don’t tell much because generally people don’t care. I lived in Italy for many years, and dated my boss… no one knew

Starrlight profile image
Starrlight in reply to Iammesues

Woah how interesting. I’ve got Italian in me. Wow no one knew you were dating your boss!? That’s sounds like fun.

When I was a kid I used to dream of having a big sister who cared me. I wanted my teddy to come to life so I could have a friend and someone to hug me. I want to learn to play and sing guitar better so I can go perform because its a way I feel I can connect with people.
