people say to accept yourself for who you are.

they say to embrace it and just brush off all the judgments people make about you.

just don't care. be who you are no matter what they think. you are you and that is something nobody else can accomplish.

i just don't know how to stop caring.

can you tell me? because i hate the shameful, embarrassing, feeling that crawls into my stomach when people stare at me or whisper my name.

i want so desperately to not care. to accept myself for who i am. i want to get over the fact that no one understands me.

but what do i do if i don't know who i am?

how can i not care if people don't accept me if im not sure if i can accept myself?

sometimes i just feel so lost. and i don't think im strong enough to do all these things on my own- to face the judgments.

i need someone.
