    Learning To Stand Beside Myself

    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.

    Approval, No ... Acceptance, Yes.

    I really don't seek the approval of others for what I do or who I am.I am me and I can not change that.However, it would be nice to have the acceptance of others.Acceptance as a woman, since it is who I am.Not exactly within the definition of many cause I am a little different.I...

    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.

    If you don't love yourself...no one will. I love myself. I didn't always...I spent the better half of my life thinking I wasn't good enough. Now I know better. I love the way I look, I love my body, I love my personality. Sure I've got my quirks who doesn't, but I've come to the...

    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...

    Screw You, Judgmental Freaks.

    So I'm a bit crazy. Maybe I talk to myself,  laugh when I'm alone. Maybe I like being at home better than going out clubbing. Maybe I'm a fan of Edgar Allen Poe instead of Stephanie Myer. Perhaps I'm one that quotes random movies and waves at people I don't know. Maybe I can be...

    There too many judgmental people out there.

    Yes I'm into allot of mature groups and yes I like to have fun. But there is allot more to me than this. People assume if a person is mainly in mature groups they are nothing more than a pervert. They don't make the time to think their more to the person. Honestly if you...

    I really like the name of this group.

    That sums up how I feel. I'm generally accepting of people and most ideas and I think a majority of people don't really care one way or another about mine. I usually don't take extreme compliments or criticisms too seriously although at times both are appreciated. I like forming...

    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 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 .

    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...
