    Before there was the song,

    there was the quote, "You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything." I can't remember who said it, but I've always thought it was true. Some of my beliefs are part of who I am- not all of them, because there are things like politics and various causes that are...

    I grew up being rejected,

    I had to get used to it when I was little. For years I was the only kid in the entire grade who was an only child and I was the only kid for years who had divorced parents. I still remember people telling me I wasn't a real kid because they thought I didn't have a dad even...

    I get rejected by my family

    for being who I am. They believe that I have a **** personality but, that's because they can't stand to see me or other family members be theirselves. Weird, right? I get threatened if I don't change who I am but, I don't change who I am because I am me.

    Some may say the significant of my.

    On Request I Will Share, I Try Not To Think About These Things Too Much, It Will Only Get Me Down

    I was rejected for who I was starting early in life. At age 6 I was taken to a psychiatrist because I apparently was considered by my family and/or teachers to be abnormal in some way, and according to them I had ADD and needed meds. Interestingly, and I wonder if it was related...

    Black and White is painful in this country. That's simply a fact...I can't see us (the USA) ever standing as nationalists under one flag, since we can't agree on two color let alone three that actaully matter. But I digress. I've grown up as worst case scenario. I don't...

    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.

    It happened so much. Being multi racial an

    I have never felt like I have a place.

    All I heard growing up was how I looked like a white boy, at times was a disgrace, and just never seemed to be me. It's killed me inside.

    This is only the most recent in a long line of

    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.
