I say you should embrace your quirks and idiosyncrasies.

I’ve had my share of people that didn’t like me but in my 30s I have been having the best experience just being able to be myself and treat myself good and knowing for sure that I am just as good as anybody else. I need to know that on the inside and I do know that now. As a little hurt black girl I was victimized regularly and bullied badly as a child. I always indentified with people who told me they had not had the easiest life experience but more and more I’ve grown to like my life and even the volunteer work and part time work I do. I have been working part time as a Mentor for the DREAM program at Mercer County College. I feel like I’m an asset there and I just love working there and being a mentor.
