    To Be Accepted By My Family

    I've never been fully accepted by my family. I would like them to accept who I am and not judge me by my mental health condition. I don't think it's fair for anyone in my family to judge me for it. My mental health is a medical condition and I cannot help it. Many are...

    I Can Feel It. Somewhere Under There...

    And I hate it. Maybe because it feels like a weakness. Why should I need anyone to tell me that I am good enough? Or that I fit in somewhere? Or that I am good. Why do I have this obscure awareness of this thing that lurks beyond, making me feel unworthy? (Wait, the why is...

    Won't Happen Anytime Soon

    I would love to truly be accepted. But I don't think I will be, and that's ok. I know I'm werid, and different. Maybe it's better NOT to be accepted by the rest anyway. but who really knows. I'm me and if you don't like it, then don't accept me. :P
