    In order for others to accept us,

    it is important that we first accept ourselves. After all, how can you expect somebody to love and accept you, if/when you don't love or accept yourself?

    I would love for others to like me

    for me. I'm tired of guys just liking me because they think they can get something sexual out of it. I mean do guys want something real anymore! I'm just tired of people expecting me to be a certain way! I'm so close to the point of saying, "screw your,if you don't like me for...

    There will always be people around you

    Although I know I'm not perfect,

    it's really discouraging to be always pointed out my flaws and never being recognized my good qualities. I can found 300+ words rants about how bad I am, but no one single word saying something good about me... Yes I have a lot to improve, can at least my efforts be taken in...

    I am the person I was destined to become.

    I like myself. I choose to associate with those who not only offer acceptance, but celebrate diversity.

    I am only human. I don't think

    that it is fair to me that some people on this earth.. Don't see me that way. I sometimes feel as if people don't care enough about themselves, so they are very insecure. They walk and talk as if they are perfect. But somewhere I think they're dying inside. To be seen as human...

    I've learned that if you accept yourself

    for who you are and you're confident in yourself then others will also accept you and be confident in you. But, then again they'll always be people out there who wont accept you no matter what, that's when you say '**** you' & you just do you!????

    I am not a flawless person.

    my mind is a dark place with fire, demons, regrets and holes. I am not a part of any charity events, and I don't volunteer to help with things because I am often too busy mixing lava with cotton candy in my hell. I do not have the perfect job, the perfect family, and the...

    I'm shy and feel very uncomfortable in social

    settings. I typically don't talk unless spoken too or if I'm comfortable in the setting/who I'm with. I've been told that my quietness and inability to strike up a conversation is being rude--also something that people judge me negatively for. I can't help the way I am. I'm just...

    I am a girl that is in love with another girl.

    I know I couldn't introduce her as my girlfriend to my parents because my family means the world to me but they would disown me when they found out I am hopelessly Inlove with the same sex.

    I'm lesbian. Proud on the outside

    but sad on the inside. I act as if everything is okay but it's really not. Scared that people are going to beat us to death. Hate having bibles thrown in my face... Not that I'm against my religion. It does not make a difference!! I want to be accepted for who I am!

    We want others to accept

    who we are, but sometimes, we, ourselves, have difficulty accepting the real us.

    If they miss you, they’ll call.

    If they want you, they’ll say it. If they care, they’ll show it. And if not, they aren’t worth your time.

    I'm considered the "too smart one" in my family.

    I'm almost finished with college at my very young age, and overwhelmingly intellectual. Because of this, it's very hard to find someone who understands that it's hard...really hard. (Interacting.) Finding anyone that will not judge you for being a really smart teen. Constantly I...

    I don't act how I think people want me to act.

    I'd rather be alone than be surrounded by people who don't like me for me. I act like myself, and other people don't have to like it. They can leave. Pretending to be different is too tiring ;3

    I spent my entire life trying to please others.

    In doing that I had to be Mrs. Perfect. Well, I am not perfect. I make mistakes and mess up! I try my best to be the best I can be, and that's all I can do.
