    I was born with a facial birth defect.

    I've learned that it's more important to love myself than try to disappear or make others like me who never will. I want others to openly accept me without judgement. I'm not ugly, I'm not hideous. And if people try to tell me that well I'm not entitled to listen now am I?

    and irl. Like, I try to be as polite and as nice as I possibly can but that is no reason for you to take advantage of my kindness and or try to make me feel low. I am not a toy to be played with. If you have absolutely no interest in me and are worried about how I look or...

    Sometimes, I get lost,

    In my own mind, In my own head, I get lost in the passion, Consumed by love, Give in to lust, I get lost in God, In heaven, In sin, I get lost In the repetion, And the beauty within.

    I'm selfish, yet very generous.

    My words and actions contradict each other at times. My heart is covered in a huge block of ice. I dont let anyone in, my feelings are my own and i never express them to people i know (other than my therapist and here). I love the darkness/gloominess but also appreciate the...

    you know, I grew up in a very poor family.

    we had to, and still do on occasions, dig through the goodwill dumpster to get by. I don't get why that is so bad. I am sick and tired of getting judged for my family's wealth

    I joined this social networking site

    as a way of expressing and blogging my feelings, experiences and my ongoing journey of learning to love myself just as I am and just as I know God loves me. Yes, that does mean accepting and loving myself as a gay Christian.
