    I've spent my own life trying to make others

    happy, mostly in the hope of gaining acceptance. My reward for being honest, nice, authentic etc? social rejection. I won't change my core values, if I continue to be rejected, so be it. I'm done trying to please people.

    I'm a 'nice' and 'sensitive' guy.

    I've always put others feelings above mine. Chicks don't dig it. Maybe if I had just stepped on people throughout life things would be different.........

    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...

    I told my "best friend" more like a "sister"

    what I truly am and she straight up called me crazy, that I was being stupid and dangerous and she did not support me at all and told me I needed to go and get some help. I've learned my lesson about telling people what I am.

    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.

    I am a woman who, even trying different things,

    has been rejected over and over for my looks, or lack thereof. Beauty may be only skin deep, but if you don't have it, no one cares to try to see beyond it and get to know the person on the inside.

    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.

    that it's a million times better than being rejected or accepted for someone you're not. When you are being authentic and get rejected, even if the other person says explicitly they don't like you, it's really not personal. I think it's either a sign that they have something...

    why I'm so mentally ****** up is because my whole life people would point out my flaws, and tell me what I needed to change about myself. So I always overthink things because I'm afraid I'll be judged for the slightest things. I used to be extremely extroverted, and people would...
