I Have Been Rejected For Who I Am

The world has decided to criticize my life and being simply for my beliefs, emotions, virtues, ideas, etc. 3,515 People

    Apparently being honest about

    who you are turns people off.

    You hate the fact that I'm brutally honest

    and I actually care enough to be honest to you? Oh well, I'm not gonna apologize for it. You can just walk away like the rest of them

    This is only the most recent in a long line of

    rejections. Being a transgender person in the American South certainly isn't easy, but the most painful moments are those that are born from the people I had once come to trust. I only recently came into contact with someone I once believed to be a friend, and upon seeing me as...

    When I was a freshman in High school,

    some girls from my dance class asked me if I was virgin just because I had a boyfriend. I told them yes, and they started laughing at me. I guess it's a crime to has morals.

    I have just started coming to terms with the

    fact I am a transgenedered woman , and my wife has rejected me for it. My heart is be ripped out of my chest. I feel so empty right now. So I'll need to suppress and deny the woman I am or lose the woman I love.

    OK. So no bitterness here,

    but I was a punk rocker when I was a teen, and actually got kicked out of a church for having blue hair and black clothing. Lol!

    and ostracize me. I haven't done anything to them, but I stick out as different and they dislike me for that. I'm the awkward autistic one who is easier to ignore than engage with. I've put a lot of effort into trying to build a stronger relationship with them, but I've now come...

    Meh... I Have.

    I've been rejected soooo many times. Mainly by strangers but also by my "friends" and "family" as well. It hurt at first but after awhile I got used to it. I get over it fairly quickly now... If people can't accept you for who you are, SCREW THEM.
