    Why Is It So Difficult To Be Accepted?

    I have a lot of experience when it comes to not being accepted....every day of my life I get rejected. Some people accept some things and then not the other aspects of my personality. I don't trust, I've found it easier to just try to keep distance between myself and others. v.v...

    Grow Up.

    I'm sick and tired of reading the most heart-breaking stories and some complete arsehole to sit there and comment "life's not that bad.." or "life will get better." or something like this "get a life." or maybe even "dude, this is depressing."Last time I checked this is called...

    You're judging with your eyes,

    with your fake smile and you may say I'm your 'friend', but that means you shouldn't try to make me something I'm not. I'm okay with me. So just accept me as I am or don't accept me at all.

    I have for years wanted people to accept me

    for me, but I have been afraid to show the real me, believing they wouldn't like the real me. It was safer to hide my thoughts and emotions and blend in with the crowd. I'm finally learning to let the real me out. It's hard. It's scary. I often don't even know how I feel or...

    Confused

    Hi Id like to be accepted for myself but having a quick think maybe its not as simple as that. Maybe I dont accept others for who they are? Would total acceptance lead to some kind of social anarchy? You see I lie, I feel I have to lie, that if I told the truth about what I...

    All my life I've been envious of Angels;

    instead of embracing the creature of the darkness within, afraid of what the Angels may think. It's time all that was set aside. Today is the day, I shall rule in an infinite dark beauty as the Devil I am. -St. Wolfwood

    Acceptance

    I truly wish there was a way to come out of my self-imposed shell and be the real me and to be accepted. Why is it that so many people can not accept the person within unless the outside wrapping "fits". Fits that is their preconceived notion of that person. I don't and...

    There is no way for me to not be myself. I tried for years to be who I though society wanted to be. I found that to be miserable; I've since rediscovered myself and it started when I turned 30. I'm much happier now and with a woman who accepts me for me and encourages me to...
