I 'm Going To Be Me Unapologetically

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 897 People

    There is always someone somewhere

    that is not going to like you. It is hard to not take it personally when you try so hard. I decided I can only control my thoughts, feelings and behavior, not anyone elses. Some people are taken aback at my frankness. I believe if you ask my opinion, I should give it but I try...

    This is also an "I'm afraid to let people get

    close to me" I've spent too much time and effort to get to know myself to let someone **** it up for me. If I let you in my life, I will let you know I will not compromise myself. And if you try that **** anyway, I will drop kick you back out. I will literally pick you up and...

    A Short Intro...more To Follow!

    I want to share one of the most amazing pieces of advice never given directly to me by a fictional character (great way of explaining what's coming up, isn't it???  ;-)  I just think it happens to fit very well in this place! In the old U.S. TV series, Buffy: The...

    This is me. Here I am.

    Broken and imperfect and human. No lies, no secrets, laid out for all to see. I have bruises and scars and I have been bent and torn yet here I am, still standing. I may be imperfect, but I am ME. I fought hard to get where I am, to be who I am, and I will NEVER apologize for...

    Me Is All I Can Be

    I don't want to act like others, dress like others, speak like others do, I just want to be me with my own thoughts, attitudes, insights, sense of fashion (or lack thereof, lol!!) I am going to be me, cause she's all I know how to be. Don't like it? Go somewhere else.

    It Wasn't Always So.

    I've never had a problem with being me. Ever. Unapologetically? While I wish I could say this is true....it isn't.    There was a time that I was sorry that who I am isn't who my loved ones wanted me to be. I felt like a bit of a disappointment. They never said it...

    Truth be told, I'm somewhat eccentric

    and very random. I've spent too much time in my younger years apologizing for who I am and for any quirks or shortcomings that may puzzle or inconvenience others. While I still don't like being at odds with others, I'm coming to realize that life is too short to put so much...

    People call me names

    and tell me that I am too much for them. There is nothing wrong with what I do. I love my life and I love the way I am. Yes, I am a freak in certain ways. But I am very proud of my sexuality and I am not sorry for living my life.

    Who you see, isn't always the real me.

    I'm nice on the outside because I genuinely care for people. But that is only the half of it. On the inside I am abrasive, judgemental, opinionated, and critical. I push the boundaries, followed by a sweet smile and soft giggles. My gifts are sugar-coated in censorship, that is...
