    I have spent much of my life

    so far vying for the acceptance of others- needing their validation in order to feel like I belong. When you are a child, peer pressure is the worst kind of devil, and can cause incredible pain and heartache. As you grow up however, that peer pressure lingers, and is added to...

    You Have My Permission To Ridicule

    "I don't care what they think" is not an attitude that I was born with.  For much of my life I suffered from chronic What-If-They-Think disease.  Far too often I worried about being misunderstood, rejected, lied about, or rated a loser or dummy.  As with many...

    And It Feels Great

     For the first time in my life, I am content with who I am and what I do and say and project. It's like a million pounds were lifted off of my shoulders. I will never allow negativity into my spirit again.

    I Just Don't Care Anymore...

    I just really don't care anymore what people think of me. I have learned to stop caring so much, because honestly, it was doing more harm than good. I was not writing certain things because I was afraid of what others may think of me, but after so long, I have just stopped caring...

    I am realising that what people say,

    you shouldn't make true. When it feels right to you then it is right. Other people can't have a say in that. Also i am realising that what people say and what people think are totally two different things. They may not show you what they think, that is why it would be...

    I Cannot Be Bothered

    I really don't care what people think of me.  Comments made about me based on surface observations are baseless.  When I was younger I cared.  Actually I cared a lot and probably way too much.  I've mellowed a lot as I have gotten older and realize that my life is for me to...
