    Getting some weird signals from my

    step-daughter she's acting more like my wife than my wife! Even calls me honey baby says I love you !? Gets up in my face smiling as if she's going to kiss me. I gotta figure her out before she freaks me out.

    I'm not here to change your mind.

    Judge me for whatever reason. I'm still gonna be me. I've been called every cliche negative name out there but I still wouldn't wanna be anyone else......except maybe Jesus, but only for a day . I Love Me. What do I need your validation for?

    Absolutely!

    I love that someone created an experience for those of us who are confident and secure with who we are. It never ceases to amaze me that the moment you stop caring what someone thinks about you is the moment that they start seeking your approval. As women, we are always striving...

    I cannot be fixed for I am not broken,

    You can't take words back once they're spoken. So maybe before you say I can be treated by therapy or religion, You should realize your talking about a life you don't live in. You think I chose to be gay? Like I made that choice on a random day? Let me tell you a little about...

    Yep, just me. That's me. I'm not fake. I'm not famous. I'm not out to please everyone. I've learned a long time ago, never ever set yourself or your life up to where you would have to depend on someone to take care of you and provide for you. No me folks. Am as independent as...

    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 .

    If I am going to make changes it will be

    because I want to. People need to find someone that is what they want instead of trying to mold a person into who they want them to be. I will not revise myself for anyone. This is it. Take it or leave it. I really don't give a damn.

    There are times when I feel like I need to
