    Pretzeled Out

    Once upon a time, in a little city not too far away, I pretzeled myself day in and day out trying like hell to please him. I played Betty Crocker, and rewrote my character over and over, I even had a couple terrific children just to try to make him happy. Guess what? It did not...

    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 Man Who Marches To His Own Drummer

    For years ,because i didn't really know exactly who and what i really wanted to be , i did what other people around me did. For example ,many guys at my school were jocks who were totally into sports,which meant that it was the thing to do ,even if i was not truly into it. I...

    Take it or leave it. Far from perfect,

    but always trying to improve myself. Love to help others but I realize this is a culture where your help is denied even if it's needed. But I still offer help. I can be stubborn but not too much for my own good. I struggle to be content sometimes but getting better at that. I'm...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
