    Not knowing who you are can cause some controversy. Fitting in, sticking out is all it seems to be. Who you are on the inside is personal, so no one seems to care. As long as you have a sense of fashion all that is left is your hair. So there is no one to talk to and consult about your feelings, knowing everybody has them deep in their hearts wishing they could reveal them. Are we afraid to cry when someone breaks our hearts; are we afraid to laugh when someone cracks a fart? Where do we go when we don’t know who we are? There must be some place for there are so many of us out there with our own opinions and no place to express them. Loners, outcasts call us whatever you want, we are still human beings, just like you, who want to live life to the fullest. Fitting in, sticking out is meaningless to me, for I realize that I am my own person; whether you see me or not should not be a diversion. Being an individual proves independence. Who I am is just me expressing my individuality, and I look back on my everyday with pride. People out there who don’t know who they are, remember you are not alone, just stand up for what you believe in, express your opinions freely, and don’t let others bring you down, for you are your own person no matter what other people think. :tweety:

    I love children, when at play they give little or no thought to their own ego, much less what others may think of their behavior. A healthy mind just wants to be stimulated. Thanks for sharing.

    In times of stress, the real "us" comes out anyway, might as well be true to it. It's not always easy to seem different, but sometimes it's that difference that makes us great. I absolutely loved this flow.

    This is great BlatinaPoet4u

    " Fitting in, sticking out is all it seems to be. "

    So it is asked... Why Oh why can't I just be me?

    " So there is no one to talk to and consult about your feelings, knowing everybody has them deep in their hearts wishing they could reveal them. "

    Keeping it bottled up will give you ulcers,
    it becomes frustration of unexpressed love.

    It is a stress.

    Don't be afraid to express your heart.
    Take a chance and and see how far.
    Your dreams take you,
    expressing makes you.

    Whole.

    Come to me, I love expression,
    tell me what is on your mind.
    Oh that may be shocking,
    I will survive, this is your
    desires coming out from inside.

    I'll be OK, need a seat belt to hold on.
    Your real feelings are turning me on!

    Reveal them, never stop the flow.
    I want to share and know what you know.
    This is your opportunity to grow. :jumping:
