    Who Am I??

    Myself! I don't know of any other way to be. I'm not going to change or behave in a way that isn't true to myself just because someone might not like me. Period. End of story.

    I Can't Imagine Pretending to Be Other Than Me.

    I've said it so many times before, to so many people, and even on here, I feel like I'm harping on.... but it really is something I feel incredibly strongly about.  Being honest about who you are, both to yourself and to others, is a necessity in life. I can't imagine how...

    Rebellious Nature

    I am in everything rebellious. When I was living in north London with Rollo Richardson, my doctor boyfriend who is thirty years older than me, we went to some brilliant parties in which I proved myself a crazy French girl among all those Britons. Rollo is very much a fetishiste...

    That's All I Know How to Be.

    I can only be myself, and if anyone has a problem with that then "pooey" on them. I decided years ago that I am tired of trying to please the masses. I prefer to just be me and make sure that I am happy.

    Practical :)

    For years I have searched for who I am and what I want in life - as I string those things together, I do not want to sacrifice what I find by letting it get lost in a procession of masks and deceptions.  My memory sucks, so I would never be able to sustain the charade, my...

    Impossible to Be Anyone Else

    My experiences made me and they are different than anyone elses. My heart, mind, make me unique, unlike anyone else. My soul and spirit lead me to me and no one else. I can only walk my path. If I'm lucky someone else is going along that path to their destination and we can walk...

    for acceptance and struggle with finding your place in the world. Who will be there? How do I find what I need? As time marches on, and I reached the age of 30, I have found that everything I thought I knew at 23 is, for the most part, not even close to the answer to my problems...

    Why Pretend?

    I cant be someone I am not. I hate it when people try to change who you are. Let's say you try. You wont be happy, Alot of people aren't really their selves any way cause they are always trying to please somone else. I can only be me wheter it ****** people off or not.

    No Other Way

    I don't know if I can truly love him,

    but I have feelings for him, just figuring out if it's friendship or more is hard, I don't want to hurt him by not being about to return the feelings but prolonging things will hurt just as much. So I'll try best to figure this out quickly.
