    Accepting Myself

    I'm starting to accept myself for who I am. Not who I could be. Not what others want me to be. ..Me! I know I'm far from perfect, but that's the true beauty of it. Our imperfections are what make us perfect. Our hopes, our dreams, our goals, our thoughts... our everything -- is...

    I love to listen to: Metal,

    Hard Rock,Soft Rock,etc. But when I tell church members, they show me how they can't cope with what means so much to me. I grew up with Rock but for someone to take it and throw it away: hurts me.

    I was bullied in High School

    and humiliated by the two women I dated because of my small size. After some experimentation I have come to realize I like androgyny and I am bisexual. I met a guy named Pete and we have spent some time together as friends. He called me up today and asked if I wanted to hang out...

    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.

    People often don't reply to me.

    Sometimes I don't know why. Other times I think it's just that maybe cuz I'm "different". A freak. I don't know. All I know is that the harder I try to reach out, the further they push me away. Isolate me.

    When I was younger all I wanted to do was be

    popular. But no one would let me be in there group. I decided to switch schools. It was the best thing I ever did. I now give many friends and and awesome bf. the only reason I'm so happy is because I was myself from the start.

    I've noticed something different. Maybe because I watched to many movies or have a ridiculously creative imagination, but everyday and everything I do in my life feels very generic. I wake up, shower, eat, drive to work, drive home, sleep, repeat. I don't mind the repetition of...

    Sometimes it's hard for people to accept you.

    Actually all the time. It's a huge problem in our society today. Being a teenager I feel it's harder now. We are trying to figure who we want to be and who we are. Sometimes we can't be ourselves because we don't "fit it." I realized, no matter where you are, who you are, what...
