    The "i'm Sorry For Being Myself" Self Is So Done!

    I would apologize for just being myself. Like if I was joking around or dancing to music or just doing something random and someone looked at me funny I would say I'm sorry just in case I offend them or because that was not my “normal” demeanor around them. That was so stupid...

    My Internal Scale

    I've always told people that I refuse to censor myself because of their ignorance. This in no way describes me as flippant or mean. I'm very respectful and kind, I'm just not willing to change my thoughts for the convenience of others.
