    No, this doesn't mean I cut myself,

    think about suicide all the time, kick kittens, trip over old ladies, or scare little children.

    I'm emo and I'm proud

    because this who I really am. No fake the real me. I may be shy at first but once you get to know me I'm fun and energetic person. I do battle depression and am suicidal but I'll make you smile if you don't want to. And I'll battle my own problems. So if you need someone to talk...

    Hopefully uh all understand that

    if you say, "I'm emo" you're most likely a scene kid because emo isn't even a type of lifestyle. Emo is a genre of music, as for example, My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boys are emo. Emo isn't short for emotional. Emo isn't anything but a genre of music. So basically...

    I don't really believe in the stereotypical

    terms like emo, goth, jock blah blah blah but I do end up getting classed as 'emo'. When people think of emo they think, a suicidal teen who cuts themselves all the time and think their lives are worse than everyone. I really don't believe that, no I won't deny that I do self...

    Guess that's what my clique is called.

    Me and about 4 other people. My step - sisters also call me emo. I don't care being called emo, just gets annoying when someone uses it as an insult.

    I'm the Real Thing

    I'm getting tired of many people saying "I'm Going To Be Emo!" First of all, you can't just say "I'm going to be emo." And then expect yourself to become emo in the span of one night. Emo isn't just a stlye of dressing, and it's not just a music style. Emo...

    I'm not really one to put labels on myself.

    .. But.. If we're bring honest here.. I do fit the emo stereotype and people don't hesitate to let me know that. But honestly... I don't care what they have to say. I'm me and that's it. ✌️

    I suppose I could identify

    as emo. I mean really it's an umbrella term. I'm not some hardcore person who hates the world and is angry at everyone. And I'm not saying every emo is like that either. However, the stereotype tends to think so. Anyway, yeah, any other emos out there?

    they give us. We are not always depressed and sad. I am a pretty positive guy. We don't condone suicide or cutting. We don't always wear all black clothing. We aren't some dark cult of devil worshipers. Stop with the stereotyping society. God bless guys. I love you all <3...
