I Am Who I Am, Take It Or Leave It

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,038 People

    Basically

    There are days that I hate myself and I find nothing but flaw in everything about me, but overall my general attitude is just that: Take it or leave it, cause I will change for no one, and I do/say/wear/love/think what I want without regard to haters.

    Here's Your Hat and Coat, There's the Door!

    I am me! That's all I can say in a nutshell. I am not willing to change myself for others, or to act or pretend to fit in. I just can't care to! Most of my life, until age 21, I tried to be and feel like others wanted me to. Funny, as I was Goth, since teen years. And the...

    I am not here to be another version of you,

    so that you feel less frightened, I'm not here to reflect you, make you feel better, agree with you or fulfil your expectations. I like you, as you are, but I don't want to be you. Be Aware.

    Being "emo" is somewhat hard at times.

    Telling me to kill myself isn't helping.

    mysterious, or interesting. Mind games DO make me believe you are a waste of my energy, and a waste of my time.

    I Cry, So?

    I've always been the way I was as a young person as I am now. Mom had nine of us to deal with, and with teens, she had her hands full. For me being the baby, It was always, "Play in your room!" So I learned with an out of this world imagination and an interest in...

    All throughout my life I've always been average,

    and it's about time I embrace it. All around me I watch my friends receiving National Honors Society invitations, while my hands remain empty and craving the invitation I've worked so hard for. The grade requirement is a 96 average, and here I am, at a 94. 2 measly points...

    Nobody Really Knows It All

    Nobody really knows everything about me, not even my parents or closest friends. I don't know if anyone has ever tried to figure me out. I used to walk with my head down but I have grown stronger. I have told people a lot about myself, but they know that's not everything. People...

    It was in 1978 that i first really hooked into the musical genius of Fleetwood Mac. They so hit a chord with that summer of musical headonism for me and my buddies. I had gotten out of nelson, was 19 and sick of being stuck in a place that offered little excitement for me.Β  I...

    And If You Don't Like It, Then F*** You

    As you can probably tell from my story title, I am quite fed up right now.  Not exactly in my usual mood, but I don't care. Before this upsets anyone, please don't take any of this personally.  Most of this is addressed to my family, especially my mom.  A little...

    Tired Of Being What They Want Me To Be.

    Like I've mentioned before that I would act and say what others wanted to see and hear. I believe that might have contributed to some of my sadness at that time. However now I am just me. If you don't like it I really don't care. I'm not going to live MY life how any one wants me...

    than deposits in your life, you will be out of balance, and in the negative! Know when to close the account.
