I've been thinking about what it means to be accepted. I thought about my own experience, about how I was looking for acceptance, when I just found out who I am and why it was so important to me. At the time it seemed to me that it's obviously right decision to tell everything to my parents. I wanted it so badly! Well first of all because in this case I won't have to hide anymore. Secondly, it seemed to me that if my parents will know and be able to accept me, somehow it will help me to accept myself. These considerations led me to a curious example..
You know, when small children do something they never done before, they're watching the parents reaction, 'cause they don't know whether this good or bad. I think we are just like small children, and the other part of society, outsiders, like parents to us, or teachers, or just grown-ups, whose evaluation is important for us. We're just need their evaluation. And when they say "No, it isn't good to wear diapers and to use them on purpose", we act like spoiled kids, running tantrum "I don't want you to say it's bad". But they aren't as big as they think. What acceptance are you looking for? And if you already know that it isn't bad, then why their opinion so important to you?
I'd like to know what you think about it.
