I have flaws, and a lot of them. But I love myself anyways

I don't like the way I look, But I deal with it and put up with myself.

I'm overweight, I have big boobs and an unattractive face and body, But I'm ok with it.

I'm a lesbian, And I'm proud to be one.

I'm cautious about how I look and what I do, But I don't care what others think of me.

I make a lot of stupid remarks and comments, But sometimes, people laugh at them.

As long as everyone around me is happy, My own problems never matter to myself.

Those people that slit their wrists because of their problems? That was me almost three years ago.

Those patients in a mental hospital, going to psychotherapy ever month? That was me three years ago.

Want to judge me on who I am? Fine. Go ahead. It hurts me, but I'm not going to change just for you.

I get overly excited when the people I like talk to me, Because the last time I was ever with anyone in more than a friendship was seven years ago.

I love romance novels and books, Because it gives me a sliver of hope that maybe someday, on another planet possibly, I'll end up falling in love.

I love my friends and family, But if you hurt them in any way, I'll seriously fuck you up. They're all I have.

I'm always watching my back, Because someday, my regrets will catch up with me.

I love to smile and be happy, Even if I'm really hurting and breaking inside.

I believe laughing is a way of healing the soul, And it's worked, a lot of the time.

I love tea and coffee, And most of the time, they make me feel a lot better.

I have my wants and my needs, But I sometimes don't get them,and I'm ok with that.

I love music, And on many, many occasions, it has saved my sanity.

I'm a violinist, And I'm a freak like the rest of instrumentalists... Completely mad!

I'm obsessed with so many things, And sometimes I never get over those obsessions.

I can't sing to save my life, But I like to sing anyways.

I'm a woman, and a feminist, But that doesn't mean I hate males. It just means I prefer girls over guys.

I have weird friends and an unusual family, But I love them anyways.

I have problems, and a lot of them, But most of the time, I hide them from everyone. I don't want to bother them with my problems.

I'm me, and it's been hard to except myself, But I'm getting there.

Here's my challenge to you... Post about yourself, and be true about it all! Make sure to put in three songs that describe you, and post the URL in my comments, and I'll check yours out! And like Cera Seren said, lets start a revolution and be ourselves!
