I Am Not Sorry For Who I Am

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 790 People

    I will not be ashamed of

    who I was, or who I am. I am me You are not me You are you We all have things that we may not be proud of, but for the most part I am proud of who I am. I hope that doesn't sound conceited, because that isn't my intention.

    I like who I am, and I would never trade my

    crazy random way of thinking for popularity or a group of close friends. I am who I am, and you aren't going to change that. Nobody is. I'm different and proud of it.

    I am me, you are you.

    If you don't like me then too bad for you, because I don't care what you think of me. There are very few people who's opinion I care for, but other than those select few, don't expect me to ask for your permission to be me

    It's not my fault that

    when I was little was I bullied and teased to the point where now I'm an introvert, extremely shy and awkward, have low self esteem, and is now extremely sensitive to some things. So, if you don't like me, well too bad. I actually like who I've become, I grew strong over the...

    I can't handle a military relationship,

    but if I'm deeply in love with that person, I'll try dealing with it. I have high anxiety. I understand other people have it to and they can possibly handle relationships like that, but everyone copes with things differently and I have trust issues. I've always had them and I...

    I'm not sorry for who I am

    because I believe that what the world throws at you shapes you into who you are. I also think that my mum has been the most inspiring person in my life who has pushed me and helped me grow into the person I am today.

    I know you don't like me the way I am.

    I'm just a straight arrow, and you can't tolerate that. I tell you what I feel, and you dislike that. You ask me to be honest, but when I'm honest, you hate me for it. It's not OK, and I'm done with you. All of you. I'm sick of the lies, and trying to please anyone. If you can...

    Introspective. Love to laugh.

    A lover, and a fighter. If you can handle all of these things, you'll find I'm a loyal friend. What you see isn't necessarily all there is.

    I haven't cared since I was 14.

    Not about things people may say, or what they might think. Unless you matter to me, I don't give a damn what you think of me. I like who I am. For those who truly know that feeling, you will also know that this bothers other people, especially kids in high school and college...

    I make mistakes. My way of thinking is

    different. I react to things differently. All these things make me a unique individual...and you have the nerve to criticize & judge me for all these things? Yet claiming that you love me? **** off. As if you're perfect.

    If you apologize for being

    who you are, it's like being sorry for being born in a world where you can't do things the way you want because everyone's going to say something about it and judge you since you're different.

    Not for my appearance, or my actions. Not for my personality, or the way I think. As long as I'm not hurting anyone for doing them, I'm not apologizing.
