    Well who wouldn't? I like to think I have a

    fairly impressive ability to not give a duck whether or not I'm accepted but it's a lot easier to enjoy being yourself when others enjoy you being yourself too.

    I am only human. I don't think

    that it is fair to me that some people on this earth.. Don't see me that way. I sometimes feel as if people don't care enough about themselves, so they are very insecure. They walk and talk as if they are perfect. But somewhere I think they're dying inside. To be seen as human...

    Everyone lives their lives differently

    so why judge? As long as nobody is hurting anyone everything should be at peace

    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 found this site because I'm feeling a bit

    lost. I thought that I had gotten better socially, and at making friends, but my new job has shown me otherwise. I am always picked last when we have to pair up and I'm still eating my lunches alone. My boyfriend tells me that I should make more friends, but I don't feel like I...

    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.

    I can be shy. I snore sometimes

    when I'm really tired. I drive like an old person. I lean more to the Republican side. I don't like to wear heels.I like my drawer clothes organized. I don't drink. I do my own thing. I wear my pajamas to school. I just want you to accept that.

    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...

    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

    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.

    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...

    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!

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