Acceptance

written by: Electra

We all want to fit in,to feel wanted and accepted?It is need-that needs to be fulfilled for our own happiness.Acceptance grants us security that we are not some out of this world freak.That we have a chance of belonging,of obtaining things that so many take forgranted.But recently I learned that as I was trying to fit in with the 'cool kids' I was slowly losing myself.And I realized that no matter how hard I tried I would only gain true acceptance as myself because pretending to be somthing I m not just led to more confusion and sorrow as I had no idea who I was anymore.Was I the unhappy cool kid or the formly uncool yet content kid?That was when I realized that all those sappy songs that say 'be yourself' are actually true!Being yourself in the hardest thing in the world because we ourselves are harshest Jugde of our own Characters.Being yorself requires a strenght and courage that taks all our will to muster but trust me when I say- if you are strong enough to be yourself openly then You can look in the mirror and see yourself staring back at you and not the person you wanted to be!

You have a really great message and you write it well. You may want to proof read and edit before posting just because small errors make it more difficult to read. Aside from that I think this is really meaningful!
