I Am Who I Am, Your Approval Is Not Needed

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,412 People

    There are times when I feel like I need to

    change who I am. But than the little voice in my head tells me, " No, this is you. You don't need to change anything about yourself. The people that don't accept you don't matter." Stick to who you are because you are perfect!:)

    I recently came across the youtube video

    for the Crimson Blood Wolf Pack who's alpha (last time I checked) was Wolfie Blackheart. I have only one thing to say, I would love to be a member of something like that, to be who I am and not be judged for it, to be a part of a "family" that understands me for who I am...

    Another Quote From Dr Seuss.

    Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    The school I attend, is full of negative

    behavior, thoughts, & actions. People are always putting others down, keep your rude comments to your self. Let someone be who they want to be. Do your own thing & stay out of everyone's business.

    I think homosexuality is a choice

    because u get to choose a men or woman . The obvious law is a man and woman together because this is how we multiply ; but you have choice ...I hate hearing how being gay or lesbian is a way of being its a way you chose to be .

    I have stretched ears.

    I listen to heavy metal, grunge, rock, and much more. I have no religion. I've not been anywhere near a church since I was 8. I'm bi. I don't like people. I'm a loner. I am quick to anger. It's hard to gain my trust, and easy to lose it. And I'm happy with myself, just the way I...

    Well you see.. I am my own person,

    and I choose how I want to be. If you don't like the kind of person I am, or how I carry myself, it means nothing to me. Who are you, to tell me who I am meant to be? I don't need you're approval.

    Oh So True

    Why should I ever seek approval. I am the creation of myself. I have made my decisions in life, I make the decisions on my political incorrectness, my rudeness when I wish, how I live my life and how I react to situations. If you don't like it, then don't bother communicating...
