    Broken I am broken, flawed,

    or complete acceptance but i don't know if i would change even if it were possible. maybe it was environment or maybe genetics, i don't know what created me, but i can live with who i am. however twisted that may be

    I Have Learned to Finally

    I now love and accept myself for the person I am, most flaws and all.  Without being or sounding arrogant or self-indulged, I am a very dependable, interesting person.  I am what I am, and I'm not what I'm not.  Love me or hate me, take me as I am.

    Smarter Than The Average Bear

    While I accept myself as I am I don'really expect most others to do the same. As a child I felt rejected by most of the world. My father never seemed to see me. I realized one day that I did not have to please either him or the rest of society, just myself. That is when I...

    Accepting myself as being a Transgender

    Trans-woman was one of the hardest things I've done... I became a lot more open-minded. It would be ridiculous and hypocritical for me to be Transgender and go bash gays or be racist or something. So my lesson is this: Learn to accept who your about. I realized there were things...

    21+ Years Later~

    Self-Acceptance didn't come overnight. It was a process. I can't remember anything harder in my life than coming to terms with myself nor do I remember anything more liberating than allowing myself to be that which I am.

    Me, Wordcard
