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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    What you see is what you get. What you read is who I am. I am not going to play the victim. I am thankful to be blessed. I am deeply romantic, yet complex person. I just hope that what I am today is of positive benefit to other people.

    I am skinny and for the most part I don't mind how I look. I am very active with running and ballet/dance. It kind of kills my confidence when someone says something about my weight. :/
