    I changed myself into someone I

    neither loved not respected when I was in a relationship once, but I'll never do that again. I'm extremely outgoing. I love meeting new people. I could probably make friends with a rock if it would talk back to me. However, I'm insecure at times. When I love, I love with my...

    You Are Not What Others Think About You!!!!!

    Passing by some posts here on EP I saw that many people struggle because of what others believe to be true about them. Thus I wanted to tell you it's a lie. You are not what others think about you! That simple. You are a divine gift. You are perfect just the way you are. No trait...

    I will stay true to myself,

    even if that mean losing to the masses. I will speak from my heart, I will see through everyone else's eyes including my own, but I will never go against myself just because society deems me as 'wrong'.

    For all 18 years of my life,

    I've catered to others just to please or impress. Never have I done something that I've wanted to do. From this point on I will be myself. I will discover who I truly am and not what I've become.

    It's not complicated okay.

    I won't change who I am for others. You can call me a *****, ****, whatever the **** you want to call me. But being me is the real deal. I'm official and will not be copied, nor copy others. Done, deal, settled.

    You can't impress everyone at the same time

    and in the end you'll be the one that has to live with yourself. Plus, if people don't want to be around you for who you are, then they'll be the one missing out on an awesome unique individual :P
