A Little Too Much.

Is it so much to ask? Sometimes I think this is all it would take to make me happy. If one person accepted me, respected me I think that would be enough to make me accept and respect myself. Question is, will it ever actually happen? I think it is a little too much to ask.

Don't sell yourself short! Hang in there don't settle for less! Everyone has a soulmate out there someone! Wait and when you least expect it, it will happen.

stop looking for people to accept you ~ focus on the things you love... and be the best you that you can be... people will flock to your love of what you do and it will create a world of its own. With mutual understanding and acceptance.

You cannot gain respect by waiting for someone to respect you. You have to respect yourself first for others to respect you ...wait for others to respect you and they will wait until you do first...life works that way...

and even then a lot still won`t because you`ll be labelled "different" and rejected for your different beliefs/lifestyle. it takes a lot more than you respecting yourself......

My problem is I grew up hearing that I am not normal and rude and unacceptable from my own family. they couldn't really understand me...and I was sturbbon and argued a lot. they see this as a sign of disrespect. they wanted me to obay and say yes and conform and it wasn't me...that influenced me so much that I was not able to be myself anywhere because I thought that people will never accept who I am. now I realised how bad it is.. because you feel that you are trying to please everyone and at the end you still find those who don't accept the "fake" you. now only, at this age I realised that its better to be true to myself and others and never put on a show or pretend that I am someone else. it is very difficult though!

It is a great big world out there. Somewhere out there are people who will like you for what you are. You just have to keep looking.

Confidence is such a powerful thing and when you do not have that, people can tell and sense it as well.

Start out by trying to respect and accept yourself.

The wonderful and beautiful person you are deserves that,

and nothing less!

Trouble is, people don't do that. They accept that which they are looking for.



It is up to each of us to define ourselves, and to fit in with those people and those situations which are suitable for us. If other people don't like what you are, do not seek their approval. You may have to adapt to situations you want to be in but never, ever seek validation from others. It comes from within.

By seeking out others with whom you would like to know, mingle with, test, and befriend. It works a lot better with people you already know something about and have higher drgree of compatibility with. And, specific to what you asked, don't ignore the red flags.

I understand that feeling...I have to compartmentalize myself for everyone, since nobody cares for the entire me. It's frustrating.
