People confuse me

I guess my expectations are just too high-but somehow I always feel 'let down' by most people.

People just don't seem to be able or willing to accept me for who I am, and, at this point in my life, I really can't worry about it.

Well, just felt like making this lame post to get this off my chest!

Gina darlin... youre startin to sound like me... all with the whole worrying 500% too much... Im in a good mood today though (begining to wonder if im manic depressive lol) but really. If those pics you post are honestly you, then the whole world has gone insane. If not, then you better darn well send me good ones via email LOL. But I mean, whats not to like? Bide your time. People cant remain ignorant to the fact youre absolutely wonderful for entirely too long. If ya relax and let them come to you, Im sure thingsll work out fine... and if not, then you can go and hunt down anyone without a ring on his finger and make him love you! lol (that was no help...)

I dont know what exactly to say, but im trying. I wouldnt try if I didnt think you were worth the effort. Try not to be so down on yourself.

Always look on the bright side of life *wistles*

If ya need anything, just gimmie a shout.

...

I wonder what my sig is? LOL i forget... hahaha

Call on the fire, and you're bound to get burned...

Thanks-it was nice to meet you too Christine.

I try to have that attitude, but it's tough for me to do-I'm just too sensitive for my own good, I guess

Ok... so just "who" are you that people can't accept you?

AND who are these people you are hanging around with that cannot accept you????
True friends are supposed to accept you, warts and all.
Oh! but remember: To have a good friend, you must be a good friend... Something like that.


Lastly, there will ALWAYS be jerks out there in the world. There will always be people that do not accept you for one reason or another... The key is... Do YOU accept yourself??... warts and all??? And does the opinion of these people REALLY matter to you? Should it?? Or do you take into consideration WHO is the one criticizing?

Know yourself, Gina...Accept yourself. Love yourself.. And if there are a few rough spots you think you should smooth out, well then work on it (but go easy on yourself!)

Anyway, hang in there!

..Oh, and... "How YOU doin'????"




Peace

My love for you
It's in the things I do and say
If I wanna live I gotta
Die to myself someday.
Surrender.

Gee, thanks Joey

Well, I think I'm a good friend-I know myself-too well for my own good sometimes, I think , but don't love or accept myself-that is a constant struggle,due to reasons I would never talk about here.

Oh-and people STILL confuse me Heck-I confuse me!

Im sick of being a good friend, as ive said before, nice guys finish last. Therefore, I am taking it upon myself to become arrogant, cocky, crass, and to be an asshole since it seems that every person who is hooked up in this town treats girls like shit. People other than my friends dont tlak to me while im at school anyway, so what the fuck is it going to matter. GRRRRR

*is very VERY bitter*

OH MY GOD!! Its ME during my 20's!!!!!!

Youre headed for your own lil Hell on Earth... Are you prepared??

Are you sure you want to do this???


Oh, well... I guess we all have to learn the hard way!

Hope you survive this, Uforgettable. Hope to see you on the "other side".

God bless you

I can understand why it is difficult to be, honestly, good people, especially when one is young.

Perhaps this is funny--and maybe this is just me--but I often feel left out by not being an asshole. I mean, perhaps I am overly sensitive to what evangelical Christians say, but I often hear them say how we are all evil and that we must convert....but what about those who have been good their whole lives? I almost think I should, perhaps, reject God, become a whore for about 10 years, and then reconvert just so I can fit in. Then I'd have all these good stories to tell potential converts.

Seriously, though, I'd never do it, but I almost think that people born with good integrity often feel isolated and/or defective, because they aren't "bad" like everyone else.

Anyway, maybe I'm making no sense here. Does anyone know what I'm talking about here???

Regardless, I know exactly what you are talking about, Gina and FOXfire, because I was/am in your boat. Perhaps it's little consolation right now, but when you're older, people will catch up to you. At least, that is what I keep on telling myself...

But if either one of you wish to talk outside the forum, just say the word...

Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time
