    My ssibblings do not treat me good

    and I know it all boils down to my mother. I have always been the scape goat in the family. All I want is their acceptance but she treats the others better than me- even my children are not treated as well as their cousins.

    Hi! I have cleaned up a lot of craziness in my

    life - although I still have a healthy dose of it! I'm finally starting to love & care for myself. I am finding myself drawn to the idea of having a special someone which is something I tend to de-value. Of course I am learning that this was purely a coping technique for my...

    I can be bisexual if I want,

    I can be a foster kid who believes in happy endings even when it seems crazy, I can love whoever I want, and be whoever I want. And if you don't like it then that's your loss, I'm an amazing person, and if you can't accept that then too bad.

    Within the past few months,

    I've noticed something different. Maybe because I watched to many movies or have a ridiculously creative imagination, but everyday and everything I do in my life feels very generic. I wake up, shower, eat, drive to work, drive home, sleep, repeat. I don't mind the repetition of...

    Sometimes it's hard for people to accept you.

    Actually all the time. It's a huge problem in our society today. Being a teenager I feel it's harder now. We are trying to figure who we want to be and who we are. Sometimes we can't be ourselves because we don't "fit it." I realized, no matter where you are, who you are, what...
