I 'm Going To Be Me Unapologetically

    This Is Me

    This is who I am, the way you found me. All my flaws and scars, what I have to give, what I need. This person was created by my life and the people in it. Not nessasarily for them. As long as I hit all my many marks and give all the folks what they want, people are content with...

    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...

    only way I know to be

    but usually it puts people off. no I'm not pushy & obnoxious, just honest. so you chat online & figure most guys want to hear you say you are a sex goddess and so forth. I have lots of brief exchanges because I tell the truth. I've only had one affair because I'm NOT a sex...

    Don't Know How To Be Anyone Else

    Good or bad, for better or worse I have no idea how to be anyone else but myself. I may not be popular, cool, exciting or whatever but I am just me and don't know how to be anything or anyone else. I know I have flaws and if they cause me to hurt people around me I am sorry for...

    I am a realist. I am a human being.

    I have weaknesses and I have strengths. I am the only person I feel I can be.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.
