I Am Who I Am

There are times where we can be hypocritical towards others because we allow our better judgment to get the best of us. I want to clear some things out of the way. First I accept people who are gay. If they want be together then let them be, you know more power to ‘em. Two of my uncles are gay and so is my older brother but that doesn’t bother me because they are my family. We shouldn’t allow ourselves to be people who, “judge a book by its cover”.  It’s how quick we are to judge one another by appearance but not judge the content of their character. Someone who is different generally tends to be looked down on because they don’t fit into a certain mould of people. We should learn to accept people for who they are. I am who I am and that’s it.

People believe I am what they see me as, rather than what they do not see. But I am the Great Unseen, not what I cause myself to be in any particular moment. In a sense, I am what I am not. It is from the Am-notness that I come, and to it I always return.

Neale Donald Walsch

People tend to be hypocrital of me, sometimes. When I act a certain way people assume I’m gay. Just because I like to have fun all the time some people say I’m a little kid. Why are we so quick to say something before getting to know someone? We need to learn to respect one another and except each other’s different characteristics. No one person is the same because God didn’t make them that way. If we were all meant to look the same then I don’t think life would have much purpose because everyone would be the same.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

Someone I admire very much is Lou Reed. As a teen growing up in the 40’s, Reed had a hard childhood because he was bisexual. His family didn’t accept him so they tried to cure him of his gay tendencies by giving him electroconvulsive therapy. This causes electric shocks to the brain, to rid his mind of thoughts of the same sex. Later in 1973 he wrote a song about transgender women and their struggle coming up in the world. He called the song “Walk on the Wild Side” which became a well renowned song today. His empathy towards transgender showed that people shouldn’t be judged by what they look like but what their character is. Though Reed was picked on growing up, he ended up becoming a very renowned musical artist.

These are really terrible times and we should try to be as nice to each other as possible. –Lou Reed

We need to accept people for who they are and love them. We are different, we are all unique individuals. We are all special. You are who you are, nothing more or nothing less.
