I don't know if I want to marry or have kids. It seems so dull and normal. Plus I'm afraid to get HIV from a cheater. Also you have to talk to tons of people, like teachers, soccer coaches, other parents for playdates, etc. It's too social for my liking. I don't know if I'll live to regret that though.
Well about this, i guess there are usually 2 parents per child, your potential partner could always take care of that if you would feel uncomfortable.

That is always a possibility, but chances of getting STD are much higher when you are , pardon my words, screwing around.

Accept your good sides and bad sides, it is in fact very hard thing to do, but can be accomplished. I honestly dont have any advice about how to make this happen to be honest, accepting your flaws is the main thing, or fixing them that is.

I just had a negative daydream that is still going on and on. I imagined I lost all the weight. Now Malcolm X is calling me a conformist. He says I conform to the beauty standards of society. He keeps saying you're a conformist, you're a conformist, you're not your own person, you're a follower, etc. He's right here. He said he has all day and this can go on for hours.

I think he's mad because he feels like he's a conformist as a member of a certain group where everyone dresses the same, follows the same rules, has the same last name, worship the same, and live the same lifestyles. He might be jealous or threatened.

I'm very sensitive to being a conformist. But if I don't lose the weight I'll be seen as fat, lazy, and a loser. I could get diabetes or heart disease. But if I lose the weight then I'm conforming.

Before I comment, I want to assure you that I am not mocking you but am offering a suggestion:

Have you tried telling Malcolm X FIRMLY to mind his own business and to stop putting you down? Try picturing yourself grabbing him by the scruff of the neck and the seat of his pants and tossing him out the door like a sack of trash. A symbolic eviction.

I`ve had my days when negative emotions are really dragging me down to the point where I don`t even want to get out of bed. I would sometimes picture them as people and then picture myself as telling them to get lost and tossing them out of the house (my head) on their ear and slamming the door.

This strategy has helped me before and maybe it would help you.

And screw the feeling of conforming. Taking care of your health (weight control for starters), is common sense.

You wont be a conformist as long as you have your own personality, which you already have, and like i said before you are very unique person, like most of people here. If you want to lose weight, do it, if you dont want to lose weight dont worry, nothing wrong with it, because it is YOUR opinion.

That Malcolm X character is a bitch isnt he? Fight him. :)
