    No, I don't have to prove anything to anyone. I won't change myself for others to like me, being accepted is not as important as staying true to myself. It sounds easy, but it takes a lot of balls. I'm a girl but sure as hell I have huge balls to do what I do and don't give a tiny rat's ass about what others think about me.

    More important to myself is being made to feel included; not all of who I am will be accepted, I am different and I am glad and celebrate that difference. All of us are different and God made us that way to enjoy those differences. ?

    Up until about ten years ago I would have answered this question with a YES. Now I have to answer it with .... Not everyone is going to accept me for who I am and that's okay with me. Just as there are some people that I don't care to accept due to various reasons. It used to drive me crazy to know someone did not like me. I suppose it's because I was always trying to please everyone and not thinking of myself.

    Acceptance from others matters a little less to me now that I'm older. I guess I could say that I'm content in who I am, but at the same time I like for others to find value in what I say, where as when I was younger, my physical appearance was more important.

    It depends who it is.  In one way, of course I want to be accepted for who I am by those I love and care about.  On the other hand though, as I get older I care less about the passing stranger's thoughts of me.  I could not care less what random people think of me these days!

    It used to be, but not any more. I am who I am. Take it or leave it. Very good question!

    This is a terrific question! I wonder what the answers tell you? I too, do not think acceptance is as important as it once was. That, I believe comes with personal maturity. It really is about the self, how we feel about ourselves. It's about being comfortable and accepting we are. So, I have found that others are more accepting of me as I grow to accept myself more. It's a wonderful benefit of just being who I am!

    Ofcourse, but most important is accept readily just in case they wont accept you.

    i would like to say NO. but all of us know that we give way and yield to what people have to think. we dress up a certain way ( if not then we do dress up), speak a certain way , behave in a certain manner, think in confirmation to societal norms and earn and spend and do stuff , in accordance to what is acceptable. so we do care, normally. but,  there are times when we rebel and walk out of the normal trend, but we still are ARROGANT or ANGRY or OFF about the non acceptance part , because we care, we want to be accepted and when we are not , we get angry, or try to act indifferent.
    a person who actually doesn't care, would be a person , who wouldn't even notice, that he is not accepted. by being unaware of his inacceptance he, prooves that  HE himself has acccepted himself, and can't see what is inacceptable, in him.

    I totally agree with Just Ask Susan! I've learned to accept myself and that is way more important. So, my answer is a resounding NO!

    NO! definitely not. I am me, like me or not. What you see is what you get today and always.
