    Respect.

    Everyone in this world, no matter their creed, race, religion, sex, nationality, etc, deserves to be treated with the utmost respect. Even the rapists, murderers, sociopaths, all deserve respect. I dont like it, but by God, we are all entitled to respect. None of use are any...

    The Norm Annoy the Heck Out of Me.

    No one defines who i am but me.  I dont wanna walk around being some follower when i can be a loner or a leader.  Trends mean nothing to me.  I hate fashion.  Fashion never did anything positive other than make stupid people rich.  I hate how wearing...

    The Weird People Are the Interesting Ones.

    I took me a long time to realise that being your own person is a good thing. I was always bullied at school for being the 'new' kid and being different in all senses. When people found things out about me they just added it into the list of insults and made me less proud of who I...

    Be Different ...

    I dont follow any fashion trends .. I dress what I like and do what I want as long as it doesn't trouble others .. Im not a trouble maker but peace maker .. but if Im disrespected .. I will immediately turn to a trouble maker and so talented as well.

    I'm Just a Real Girl,.

    and i am my own person. I was always different; maybe, even weird. but hey, who cares? that's me. And we can only expect other people to love and accept us if we are able to accept ourselves for whoever we are.:)

    I'm Different And I Love It!

    I am different. I have always known this. During my teens I used to wonder how and why I was so different from other young people my age. Why I never go out, why I've never had a boyfriend, why I don't seem to have any kind of social life at all...why I don't seem to have people...

    Most guys, and some women, don't understand the fact that I don't like sports much. I don't care for football, baseball, golf or basketball. Golf is just some guy chasing his ball around and trying to stick it in a hole! A green hole no less! If you've ever watched football...

    Being Different Is Good ... Now.

    Our differences are to be celebrated. They make us unique. Being different is never easy. At one time I was afraid of being different. It meant that people might turn away from me (rejection) or call me all kinds of names or even hurt me (danger). Now, with self acceptance I...
