    You were born to be real,

    not to be perfect. You're here to be you, not to be what someone else wants you to be.

    I could not agree more.

    I am a wife in an open marriage, a mother to an almost 3 year old, I work 70 or so hours per week and do my best to find time to for my friends, family and myself. All I can do is give all of the aspects of my life my very best effort. If my best isn't good enough for you then I...

    and standards also by accepting the real you. Things will change, right?

    I'm an idiot with a smartguy

    heart:D "Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii:D" "Hi" "Sooooooooooooooooooooooo blaaaaaaaaaa" "Ok" "Stuff!" "Uh huh..." "La la la la laaaaa!" "Ok" Being like that is so mean, you don't want me to be me, you want me to talk normally and say interesting things, screw that.

    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...

    who I am without being so misunderstood!!! Why are we perceived by others one way, and within ourselves another. I try to be a good person in everything, but not sure I really am? On the day of judgement God will look at the heart and he will know if we are good are bad I think...

    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 am. Yes, I definitely "AM"

    and I definitely would love for others to accept who I AM... at least in a meaningful way. I have one best friend and at this age, that is plenty and I am so very grateful for her. She loves me and most importantly she respects me. She does not judge me. She does not question...

    So in all honesty, I joined EP from a

    combination of factors; I was looking at some "interesting" material on the 'net about a new discovery of mine, i.e. a bit of an adult "interest" but you'd have to dig my experiences to find that one out. Anyway a comment suggested this EP thing, so I clicked through and found...

    I'm in my early 20s and haven't come out yet.

    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...

    and then my grandmother says "you have to go to the gym". I got a lump in my throat and started crying. A lot. My mom comforted me, but my grandma said it a few more times and before we had to leave, she said it again and then talked about Zakiyyah's figure and how it was kinda...

    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.

    Have you always felt all your life the stares

    of disdain around yoi from your colleagues and classmates? or is that just my brain twisting reality ? Maybe it's just me and my negative paradigmatic view.

    I believed that if I couldn't except myself then no one could I always wondered why I was the way I was I could never understand I sometimes even felt I was never good enough. I could fall into a depression fast if I felt to lonely. I crave love. Today I found out I'm dyslexic...

    Most importantly, I want to accept myself.

    I know I have flaws, secrets, skeletons in the closet.. but that's the point in being human, right? Not one of us are perfect and yet perfection is what we strive for, dream for, lust for. If only... I were skinnier, prettier, wilder, smarter, faster, stronger --- but I am ONLY...
