I am very sorry for how over due this post is, I am very busy at the moment.
Today in R.E or Religious Education we had our Philosophy lesson… YAY seriously its sooo fun. Oh god i am such a nerd, what happened?!
And the Philosophical question we were discussing was ‘Why do people feel the need to be accepted?’. My group invented the question I would like to add… We got it from this image:
Anyway, after discussing this topic it really did get me thinking… Why DO people feel the need to be accepted? Of course some people are accepted, some will never be, some try to hard to be and some really couldn’t care less. I would class myself in the ‘couldnt care less’ section. I used to really really try to fit in with the ‘popular’ people, but gave up after a completely different group accepted me (you know who you are <3 ) After being accepted by people I didn’t expect I lost interest in the ‘popular’ people. I think that everyone, even if they don’t show it, have a need, deep down, to be accepted.
If you know you are accepted or if you feel completely alien I want you to know that acceptance may come from unexpected places, but keep looking and it will find you. If you are struggling, I want you to know, whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you are doing I accept you for who you are.
I think that people feel the need to be accepted because it gives them a sense of security and belonging. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be accepted, but trust me, dont force it upon yourself, it will come in time.
Also in order for you to be accepted you must accept others. Everyone is different and that is the best thing in the world (along with llamas and pop tarts). Even if something someone is doing is super weird to you, understand that to them that is normal and to them you might seem like a freak. Think of it like this, if you make it known to them through some act of kindness that you accept them, it will make it much easier for them to accept you. Acceptance is a two-way system. Its also a two way system with yourself. You have to accept who you are, the only thing you could ever be that is better than who you are now is a unicorn, everone wants to be a unicorn! But seriously (SRS BSNS) believe in yourself.
I want to say a huge, massive, really rather gigantic THANK YOU to my bestest friends in the whole world for accepting me when so many others refused to… I love you guys <3 xxx
I also want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you, my readers, you have accepted me as well and for that I am so massively grateful, I love you all very much, I really do <3 xxx
Believe in yourself and good luck, live your life to the full and let the haters hate (i will never say that again I promise)
Good day to you sir or madam I say good day…
