    I found this site because I'm feeling a bit

    lost. I thought that I had gotten better socially, and at making friends, but my new job has shown me otherwise. I am always picked last when we have to pair up and I'm still eating my lunches alone. My boyfriend tells me that I should make more friends, but I don't feel like I...

    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...

    Books, Netflix, Sleep,

    and my phone are my only friends. I am an introvert, because of this I can be perfectly fine with little to no social interaction. Far too often I find people frowning upon thoes who are few of words. I have concluded that this is because people fear what they don't...

    I want this but they don't.

    They have an illusion of who they think I should be and when that is proven to not be me they are then gone. what's the point anymore. ..

    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!

    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...

    With no strings attached.

    We want others to accept

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

    for who i am... But the thing is: I dont know who i am. So how can I expect others to accept me if i dont know who I MYSELF am?

    I'm a straight woman,

    but don't look it. I'm not sexy or beautiful. I'm not a girly girl, quite unfeminine. However, I'm a damn decent person and would make anyone a good friend if they would just give me a chance and see the real me.

    so why judge? As long as nobody is hurting anyone everything should be at peace

    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

    it shouldn't Matter about looks

    but about the quality and personality of the person. But it seems that all people are looking for are good looking people not people with good personalities.

    My mother is embarrassed to go out in public

    with me cause I have "way too many" piercings and don't wear appropriate jewelry. She also has a problem with my tattoos and doesn't like to do anything with me... And that's my own mother. It hurts so bad.

    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.

    fairly impressive ability to not give a duck whether or not I'm accepted but it's a lot easier to enjoy being yourself when others enjoy you being yourself too.

    None of my friends or family know. I don't have a job but have been trying to get one for a while now. My family is completely homophobic and will kick me out without hesitation. As of now I don't have a support system but I've been working on it. I think about this everyday and...

    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...
