    I am in noways perfect,

    as some of you on here can attest. I often make mistakes, drop my guard, do something stupid and bitterly end up regretting it. But i sure as heck do try and do the right thing

    I feel that my first impression on people is

    always someone who's generally nice, pretty cool and easy to talk to.. which all in all, it's pretty dead on. However, I have to say, I'm not always like that. I have my issues, my emotional moments, my rants and vents and even days where I just don't feel like bothering with...

    I'M Sorry I'M Not Perfect

    People complain to me about their problems without any consideration for me and my feelings. When I try to help, they yell at me and say I'm useless. Well, fine. I just won't help them when they complain to me anymore. I know there's **** in their lives, but I HAVE **** GOING ON...

    I'm far from it. I have autism

    and asbergers syndrome. I'm too quiet, shy, sensitive, etcetera. But for some reason, I'm proud of myself. I've made it to junior year and I'll be a senior next year. I've overcome countless problems just like everyone else. Despite my social problems, I feel nothing can hold me...

    I understand that in all of my experience I

    talk about my past and how well I am doing. I just thought I'd let everyone know that I am not perfect. I still deal with daily trials and I still need help from my counselor. I am still scared at certain times and I occasionally have nightmares about me being raped, but I try...

    So as long as I'm a human being

    and I'm not perfect, I'm able to say I'm having some growing pains. Because in order to sustain where you are once you made such a breakthrough that everyone is looking at you, now everyone is like, 'Ooh, is she gonna make a mistake?' Yes, I'm going to make a mistake. Yes, I'm...

    My vision of perfect was a different kind,

    mostly with enduring a stare at the mirror in front me, or handling to unzip my dress & show what I am to the world. Everyone tells me my idea of perfection is purely physical & that I shouldn't be whining about myself because I was a decent pretty while other girls my age aren...

    Far From It

    But that's ok you don't have to be. It only took me until my 40s to learn this but I guess it better late than never! It's a gruelling treadmill, the strive for perfection, it truly is.
