    Actually not really, I couldn't care less about

    what people think or say about me, I live my life for me and I try to not let anything hurt or break me, no matter what happens I'll stay up on my feet, surrounded by my true friends I think I'll do good .

    you should be able to be yourself.

    .. but in this society we live in we can´t... and that is so wrong.

    Being accepted for something you'r not is just

    a big lie to both you and whoever accepted you for said lie. Aside from that, if you have to change yourself to be accepted, whatever your getting out of it won't be worth it in the end anyway.

    I've always thought I'm different,

    cause I don't usually do what other people do or just simply by the way I'm, I have friends but they see me like if i was from another world.

    I want guys to accept me

    for me; for my quirky personality and my annoying laugh. I don't like heels and dresses. I'm a jeans, t shirt and slipper girl. I want guys to accept that I burp out loud sometimes for fun and am far from perfect. I want guys to accept my body. I am not a size 5 and I don't care...

    A Continuation Of My Confession

    I just wrote a confession about my mom trying to proselytize me into being religious like her. I have a long, long back story as to why I am not "a believer". But I am not here to write that all down now. The bottom line is, when someone keeps trying to get me to change my views...

    for a show and was told that my dance was 'amazing' but I couldn't get the lead as I have some acne scarring on my face and still have some spots? :( so I got a part where I am dancing near the back to basically hide myself :( this world is cruel!!

    I feel like nobody likes me.

    . Doesn´t matter how nice I am, people are mean, hateful, jealous and disrespectful to me. Especially women (around my age 23-33). I don´t get it.. I am so nice...I always make compliments to others, I invite them, I offer them a ride, I am always smiling with a very warm heart...

    I can be bisexual if I want,

    I can be a foster kid who believes in happy endings even when it seems crazy, I can love whoever I want, and be whoever I want. And if you don't like it then that's your loss, I'm an amazing person, and if you can't accept that then too bad.
