Hi I need a little advice, I struggle to accept myself and I feel like I constantly miss out on all the fun, but I know that its good to stand out, but how can I accept that I am a good girl type and that others might not like me.

I think it’s worth knowing that even if you’re doing everything that people seem to ask for, someone will be unhappy with you. People are too varied to please all of them, and someone will always object. So knowing that, it’s better to be YOU displeasing some people, than to be someone else, just to please others.
I mean, heck, I’m not terribly likeable. i’m shy, I’m way too paranoid about adhering to rules, easily scared, and a bit head-in-the-clouds, so I don’t have many friends. But I do feel authentic, and know my friends like the real me.

That is some real good advice you know, if people don’t want to accept you for you they are not worth it but deep in our hearts we do sometimes want to fit in even if we are Christian, you sound a lot like me I also feel that you should always be who you are.

Of course we want to fit in sometimes. Being completely alone is quite lonely, But I think the most important thing I’ve learned is that it’s better to be authentically me and alone, waiting for someone who loves and respects me, than it is to be someone else for someone who wouldn’t like me as I am, you know? In a way, it’s almost more lonely like that.
A more practical bit of advice? Join a club or activity based on something you’re REALLY INTO. Odds are, people with common interests will be around and you will find more people similar to you. Going to Shakespeare Camp legitmately changed my life and gave me so many better experiences. So if you’re passionate about something, join a group for it. There you’ll find people who probably feel a lot like you do

Thanks for your advice it is real true I don’t really have time for many activities this year, because it is my senior year but I do have nice people I know. I have a best friend who is real great but she lives far away. I feel so too that is what I tell myself when I feel like that.
