Can't Please Everybody!

Trying to please everybody and getting no where seems like a lot of effort for no results. So here is my story, when I was younger I would always run around trying to please people hoping that I would get some sort of recognition from them, so when I told my family and friends that I was gay I really didn't know what to expect. Some of my friends and family were really supportive and others were not at all. The two people that I wanted most to be ok with it was my mum and my dad and it didn't turn out that way at all.

The day I told them I was gay my mum told me that she wanted nothing more to do with me and I shouldn't talk to her my dad stood there silently and placed his hand on my shoulder and nodded his head for me this was his way of saying you are still my daughter and I will love you no matter what.

A few months later I started a relationship with a woman who now I am married to and I told them my dad was happy my mum was not. So I had a word with her and said no matter what you say or do I am still your daughter and I still have your blood running through my veins, I am gay and I am in a relationship where the person doesn't beat me and hurt me she doesn't be little me and make me feel like I am insignificant so why can't you be happy for me. Anyway one day she saw me and my gf talking on a bench in the park and she came over and sat with us and I knew that she had accepted me and my now wife.

Just remember you can't please everybody and you will make yourself unhappy if you try, the best way to be happy is by being yourself and accepting the person who you are we all have flaws and the biggest one of all is judging somebody!
