    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.

    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...

    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...

    To some, I'm a kind, thoughtful,

    sweetheart. To others, I'm a delusional ******* with crazy and socially unacceptable ideas. It matters not what's thought about me. I will continue to be simply - what else - me! :)

    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...

    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...
