Acceptance Is All We Plead For

Throughout the few years of life I've lived, I've seen humans as a combination of many different things. Some of those things being: kind, loving, emotional, caring, cruel, harsh, mean and rude. The list can go on for almost as long as an English dictionary itself. Humans as well, have a tendency of putting things into categories, including people. We as well have habits of keeping everything we dislike away from us, and everything we like, and only like, allowed near us. If that made any sense.

Media, it's everywhere. This is the number one negative influence on our minds. Things can only be a certain way, and if not a certain way, then they are wrong; instantly those things become outsiders. One must be skinny, another must have straight hair, this one must have good taste in clothing, and if this one eats that then this one is a "weirdo". Only certain things are in style, and if you don't have those wonderful in-style things, then out you go. You're not welcome into this great world of acceptance. I sit here and wonder, "where have all the good things gone?". There are still good things out there, I've realized. There are still good people. But is there really still only good itself?

Today, many people suffer of self hate because they are not what others like. I myself am one of those victims. I grew up being constantly teased because of my weight, always put down because I wasn't skinny like the others in my class, used an unbelievable amount of times because of my kindness towards others and my sensitivity. I would cry almost everyday. And me, thinking I couldn't do anything about it I never told my parents until I hit the end of 6th grade. I've learned though, that even running away, and trying to escape such things, was actually impossible. No matter what, we would all hit these obstacles, even if we are experienced drivers in life. There will always be someone around to step on you, to bring you down, to anger you, to agitate you, to laugh at you instead of with you, to make fun of you, to gossip about you, to hurt you, to beat you; there will always be someone like that around.

Those who put others down, and do things like the ones I've just listed, they as well get their share of pain and suffering. There is not one person in this world who has not had something happen to them that has made them angry and or sad. Like they say, What goes around, Comes around.

The scars left on me from the past I've realized will never heal. Even when I don't think about it for long periods of time, it somehow always comes back. The memories, along with the anger held inside. it's something that stays with you forever...

I would like to let those who have been hurt know: You are not alone.

And to those who hurt others: You will all get your turn of pain, and soon feel what you've made others feel.

Because as humans...acceptance is all we plead for.
