    I am currently battling social anxiety.

    I absolutely hate being put under pressure in public situations; I instantly get very shaky and my words don't seem to come out! :( This has been due to my cp which means I have a slight speech impediment and my movements become really difficult to control especially when put...

    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.

    sometimes we have to give up wonderful things

    just to make everything alright. we have to bleed alone for somebody to smile. we need those tears flow just to save the tears of others. we have to break our own heart to fill somebody else's emptiness. and there are times were we have to give up our own happiness just to...

    Yeah, I make mistakes.

    But who doesn't? First impressions don't change everything.

    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.

    We want others to accept

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

    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?

    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 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 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...

    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.

    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 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
