    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...

    No Apologies!

    I am who I am, if people don't like it then they don't have to talk to me that's the way I look at it. I'm very honest, sometimes blunt, I'm caring, kind, trustworthy, and protective of those I care for. I am a bit quirky, but again I make no apologies for that it makes me a...

    Like It Says!

    I will not ever say sorry for the way I am now, I have been through hell in my life and I will not apologize for my issues or my scars, I will not give into guilt anymore cause someone can't understand or deal with the fact that I am me , Demons and all!

    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...

    While a great many of my traits may come from my formative years, I believe the majority of who I am is "self-made". I am who I am because I choose to be. I say this because I have put effort into being opposite my nature at times. Sometimes for years. Sometimes for as long as...

    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...
