    Not Perfect

    I need everyone to realize I am not the prize they seem to believe I am. It's hard to believe anyone could look at me/get to know me and believe I am a prize,  but believe me, it has happened so many times! It's stressful... feeling the pressure to "live up" to the ideal they...

    I want others to accept me

    for who I am. The only issue is I am afraid to show who I really am for fear of being judged negatively. I keep my personal hobbies, music and interests all to myself not only out of fear but because I am already the black sheep of the (extended)family. I grew up under the...

    Everyone Should Be

    Everyone should be accepted for who they are because that's what breeds fear, the thought of not being accepted. And even though everyone has flaws, we should accept those flaws because they make us who we are. I think that no one should have a problem with me, as long as I try...

    One of the biggest issues we have in life is

    that people tend to care a lot more than they should about others opinion. Like just because someone thinks different than you doesn't give you the right to judge them and turn others against them.Nobody is born a hateful person you have to be molded into one just like nobody is...

    Should I tell my husband I'm attracted to women?

    I've been bi my whole life but he's never known. He's not the type to be "interested" in that just be hurt. Should I tell him or keep it to myself? It doesn't really affect me too much if I keep it inside cause I have my whole life. Would be the same. Opinions??

    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...

    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.

    My friends act like they understand

    and accept that in poly. But yet they go bashing my back and bash my other woman when I'm not around. All this because my wife decided after 5mths that she is no longer ok with my girlfriend and just because I don't want to break anyone's heart I'm an *******..

    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.

    The only way others can accept you

    for who or what you are, is if you first accept yourself for it. Believe and be yourself, and those who will accept it are the ones who were meant to be in your life.
