I'm Me, Just Accept It.

I was a "pleaser" all of my teen aged years and in to my early 20's. I was the peace maker, I wanted everyone to be happy except for myself. I made good grades, didn't date or drink or smoke and eventually married young.
About 22, after being who everyone else wanted me to be, I got over it. Big change for everyone in my life and most of them couldn't accept it. Too bad for them. We only get one shot at life so be yourself and don't worry about what anyone else wants you to be. If they truly love you, they will accept you for who you are, not who they want to make you in to.

Dear Miss Red, the happier you are with yourself, the happier those around you will be. Try it, you'll like it. So will they.

good 4 u! u cant b true 2 any1 else unless u r true 2 urself.

I have alway wanted everyone to be happy but I have never changed myself to ensure that. We have to love ourself first. Life is already so challenging why make it more so by not being yourself. <br />
good for you keep it up.

sounds like the same situation about me only i stopped making everyone else happy when i was 14. i looked in the mirror one day and said "ive been a good daughter. i dont cuss. i dont hang out with the bad group. i dont smoke. idont drink. i dont date. but ive made everyone else happy that i forgot about myself and i started to cry. i think we should just make ourselvs happy not everyone else. this is our life and its too short! we need to do wat we want while we have the chance!
