    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...

    I have many sides, I am sarcastic,

    sometimes I'm funny, other times I'm protective, or on the mood for a fight, sometimes I just want to curl up with a book, some days I want to wear all black, others I want to wear bright pink, Just about everyone I know likes me, but they don't really know me, they see the...

    I would like to know others like me.

    If a person can't accept my faults with the nice then leave me be. We all have our faults.

    For a long enough time,

    I was so ashamed that I liked Men too, I'd feel very guilty of fantasizing about them, it would throw me in a depressive mood afterwards, which lead to bad choices, but since I've accepted this, I feel at ease, and a bit more confident, though my sexuality is still a very...

    I want people to accept me

    for who I am. I have flaws but that doesn't make me a bad person and when people point them out it makes me miserable cause all I wanna do is live my life and make those around me happy.

    I really just wanna fall in love with someone

    who isn't exactly like me, but gets and loves exactly who I'm made to be. Why is that so hard?

    Do not let that someone treats you like ****

    just because you cannot cope in his world. Most people do not know how they must treat others. Because they themselves do not know how they want to be treated. Be a role model, treat them fine and show them how they should treat you right. Maybe they can learn something about...

    I was trying to change

    for someone that didn't work, I will always be me. At least I don't have the stress of trying to impress!

    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 am someone who doesn't seek any attention

    from others, not even to my own family. I want to accept myself for who I am but how can I do such thing if my own family and friends can't? it's not about my sexuality but rather it is about who I really am as a person. I am not a robot to be dictated on what should I do. study...

    I have been through a lot of these

    and some of these have even come from close family members. But that's how people are these days. They want you to become who they want you to be, what THEY expect you to be. It's what they want but truth is, that's not you. You are you and the only person who you'll ever only...

    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.

    If you don't, then keep walking please.

    I am just who I am. And I'll change when I'm ready. If you try to force it on me, then you don't accept me...then I no longer feel comfortable with you.

    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.

    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!

    Since third grade, I was neglected

    for not being like everyone else. I liked video games and drawing, and since I didn't know anything outside my own world, that was all I could talk about. My friends started slowly drifting away. I got quieter. I became the girl who never talks in class. My teachers knew I was...

    I have reached a point in life

    where I feel it is no longer necessary to try and impress anyone. If they like me the way I am, good. I they don't, it's their loss. This is my life, if you can't accept me for who I am then you're not worth my time.
