    To everyone who feels not accepted,

    don't feel so down. Because usually, the ones who care more and living with a broken heart, you are the ones who will be rejected and hatred the most, that most people will look down upon as bad people. Most people really don't have true love in their hearts, even when it seems...

    Why is it that people often want to change

    others or want to be something they are not for who knows what reason? I started thinking about how nice it is when people take you the way you are...it's nice to know you are liked or loved for being who you are, no more, no less. It's rare, but there is nothing by comparison...

    I accept people as they are.

    ..doesn't mean I have to like their actions. I'm currently staying with family who I see about 2 times a year. I love them. I truly do. But more and more I feel myself drifting further from the pack, which is a little alarming for me as I already feel separated from the rest...

    I have a lot to say in relation to this matter.

    In the beginning, you and your friend have parallel likes and dislikes. Sure, there's a small overlap between the two circles. You understand that everyone has a cross to bear; meanwhile, you also believe the parallels seem to come together in the distance. Even now you still...

    My Job is not to Judge.

    My Job is not to figure out if someone deserves something. My Job is to lift the fallen, To restore the broken, And to heal the hurting.

    Why do people judge others

    because they are black or white or maybe they love to listen to hip hopr or metal. Maybe they are religious or atheist. WHo cares? People are people so be kind and respectful to them.

    It's crazy how many people I'm okay with.

    The crazy sexual ones, the creepy ones, the awkward ones even the hopelessly lost ones... I feel like all of them are a little part of me in a way. And I wanna keep them all around just to get to know myself better.

    A reason why many people don't get along,

    it's because they won't accept each other for who they are. It's why people don't become and stay as true friends, it's why couples get divorced, it's why people can't make friends with anyone, etc. I'm a very unique type, so different, I literally haven't met anyone like me in...

    If anyone would like to talk then

    that would be cool. I don't care your weight, sexuality or religion. I just want to talk to you and make some connections. I'll accept you as you are just as I hope you'll accept me as I am.

    I was always bullied

    for weight and looks growing up, ( even teachers ) and it kills me knowing that people are judged daily by what they look like. I'm not JUST a fat kid. I'm so much more.

    She is a transsexual. A lot of people were making fun of her and bullying. But I love her, she is an amazing person and she doesn't deserve to be treated this way. People should respect people who they are.
