    It is something you must find on your own, if not you cannot truly accept yourself with all the advice given to you, words of encouragement, etc.

    Training – training is everything; training is all there is to a person. We speak of nature, it is folly, there is no such thing as nature What we call by that misleading name is merely heredity and training, We have no thoughts of our own, no opinions of our own. They are transmitted to us, trained into us. All that is original in us, and therefore fairly creditable or discreditable to us, can be covered up and hidden by the point of a cambric needle, all the rest being atoms contributed by and inherited from, a procession of ancestors that stretches back a billion years to the Adam-clam or grasshopper or monkey from whom our race has been so tediously and ostentatiously and unprofitably developed. And as for me, all that I think about in this plodding sad pilgrimage, this pathetic drift between the eternities, is to look out and humbly live a pure and high and blameless life, and save that one microscopic atom in me that is truly ME: the rest may land in Sheol and welcome, for all I care.

    In other words

    What others think, because the meaning you place on your own life and how you live it is all that matters. That made it a lot easier.

    It doesn’t matter how you feel inside, you know. It’s what shows up on the surface that counts. Take all your bad feelings and push them down, all the way down, past your knees, until you’re almost walking on them. And then you’ll fit in, and you’ll be invited to parties, and boys will like you… and happiness will follow.

    If you don't accept yourself, nobody else will.

    Advice - along the lines of what someone else said: You have to stop caring about what other people think of you. The hard part, not caring about the opinions of the people you care about.

    When I realized I was gay and how much of a no-no it is to be gay in a society that looks down on it I made myself a plan. I would wait til I was out of school/on my own to come out. If the worst case scenario was to happen family catastrophe etc... then what did it matter, I was out on my own anyway and could take care of myself. It wouldn't be the first time I lost a family (I am adopted). If there was no backlash then it still didn't matter because nothing changed.

    The thing was that I accepted myself on my terms and not someone else. It wasn't "I can only accept myself if __________ accepts me."

    I was born and raised in a very heterosexist environment. I accepted myself by becoming friends with new people, by constantly changing environments and by asserting myself wherever I was.

    --A droplet of oil is a droplet. A droplet of oil in a glass of water is outstanding.--

    Discover, roam the world, discover yourself, assert yourself, accept yourself.
    That was my way of doing things
