I Make No Apologies For Who I Am

The Opinions of Others Don't Define Me. 3,556 People

    I'm Not Afraid

    I was the accidental result of 2 grudge indie Nirvana fans who hated each other as people but loved one another as a spouse (now happily divorced). Niether of them looked what they were like as people but i looked like the combination of the two. I have my mother's nose and eyes...

    It's hard to make connections with people on

    here, as they want to know so much about you so quickly, and when they come across a slight fault or difference of opinions, they switch off. I have lots of faults. I have lots of flaws. Sometimes I can be cranky or grumpy, but that's nothing personal. I am socially...

    Totally true. My beliefs are considered crazy &

    radical. I'm too honest for most. My style of dress is too formal for many. But other than trying to feel people out to see what they're open to hearing, I usually stick my foot in my mouth the first time we meet. :(

    You Can't Please Everyone ;p

     I see no reason to apologize for being me. You either accept me or you don't. For people who dislike me and my ways, oh well! I'm not living for you and I really could care less about validation. Nobody should ever apologize for being themselves. Be who you are at all times...

     But Not Anymore! I Used To Be So Apologetic Whenever I Was Been Myself Because People Around Me Would Criticize Me All The Time. I'm Not Saying They Have Stopped But They'll Get Tired And Stop And Realize That This Is Me "Love It Or Leave It" And I Love Who I Am...

    Protocols Of The Wise Men Of Zion

    The result justifies the means. Let us, however, in our plans, direct our attention not so much to what is good and moral as to what is necessary and useful.

    Being gay is not a sin.

    If you think God made me who I am then God made me gay and that's who I am and I am not changing that because of what a 2000 year old book says. The bible does not dictate our rules for modern society

    I live my life by several cardinal rules. One of them is this: Don't change who you are to appease those around you. In other words, you can't always make everybody happy. Its just not possible.  Not only that, but you'll end up making yourself unhappy because a) You're not...

    Express what's in your heart always.

    Words left unspoken haunt much more than the temporary fear of looking foolish. The regret of internalized unexpressed emotions will remain with you much longer.

    I definitely don't make any apologies

    for anything. The main thing is, I stay focused and very narrow in my views. This way, I can deny anything that comes along.

    Why Should I

    Reality is that there will always be people who agree and disagree with who I am.  I would make myself crazy trying to appease them all.  And who are they.  Maybe they're nuts (for lack of a better word).  And they don't even know the full story anyways...

    Things I Won'T Apologize For

    - I am an introvert. I like my alone time and I like to stay inside more than I like to go out. I don't like it when people just drop in, unannounced. I value my privacy and have no problem spending days by myself. When I'm ready to be around humans again, I will go out. Until...
