So in my family I guess I'm considered one of the crazy one's these days. Mainly because I have a pretty big tat on my ribcage and a nose ring now. Well, that's just what I like and I see nothing wrong with liking it. I mean I persocally view tat's as a piece of art. But anyways, I got a new tat yesterday and still haven't showed my parents... I'm scared to. I mean, I'm torn bc I know they won't approve but at the same time I don't care and what to show them my work! I just hate knowing how different we are and how that drives us apart sometimes. I mean, I would love to have been able to come home and show off my wrist and jab on about it, but instead I kept my sleeve pulled down so they wouldn't see. Is there anyway at all to stop caring what they have to think? Any way to just be myself and say "Except me for who I am!" without hurting their feelings? I mean, my family is my world and I love them like nothing else, but I want to be excepted for what I am, not what they think I should conform to bc that's what they want and like. I don't know.... I guess I'm just tired of being callde pincushion and looked at funny bc they don't "understand" why I do what I do... *SIGH* Sorry, just had to let out my frustration!
