    I just don’t understand why my mother does not understand me. I tell her that I am not straight. I am bisexual. I like guys and girls.

    My mom said to me that there so no such thing as people being bisexual. This

    Why???

    • Feel free to contact me.

    • Hi Beatrice. Thank you for sharing this short essay with me! I loved how you opened up about your feelings towards your mom and I get how people might not always understand you as well as you would like them to. Your opening sentence was impactful when you said “I just don’t understand why my mother does not understand me”. Keep up your good writing!

    • Beatrice, don’t let this get to you. It is hard for her understand right ow but at the end of the day she still loves you. Just remember to be happy and to be who you are and that you are accepted. Be confident and don’t let others tell you something that you know that you arent.

    • Hi Beatrice
      I really enjoyed reading you post. I too had a teacher like this my junior year. Everyone would go through the hallways saying how bad of a teacher she was. How she was mean to everyone. So when I heard this I thought I was going to be in for a now so fun year. When to first day of class round around I though this was the end, but I was wrong. It turned out she was not so mean after all she just wanted kids to listen. Overall we had a great year.

    • Hey Beatrice!

      I have had this experience multiple times as well. Over the last few years in high school, I learned that liking a class/teacher depends on a lot of things, not just the teacher, like the students in the class and the time of day.

    • Hi Beatrice. I really enjoyed reading your perspective on teachers. I think this article brings me to the idea that you should not let other people’s perceptions sway your own opinions. I will link an article below that further explains characteristics of a good teacher. What draws you to like this teacher and why do you think others don’t liker her? I have never read a perspective like this before, and I will be back to read more from you because you don’t let other people influence your opinions which is important in keeping a non biased pov.

      • Thanks for the article. I am glad that you found this topic interesting. I hope you like other articles that I have written

    • Yes! I know exactly what you are talking about. At my school this has happened to me multiple times, and now I’m a lot more open to different teaching styles. I think it is really important to meet someone before you judge them. I would love to know more about the teachers at your school?

    • Hi Beatrice,
      I enjoyed reading this post and it is a very good point that you make. You should never make assumptions about people from what you see or hear until you meet that person for yourself. I found this article on judging a book by its cover, a common saying for judging others: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/happiness-in-world/201208/judging-book-its-cover.
      This article uses great wording about painting a picture of someone before we know them and how it can be difficult to move past our original beliefs. I think you should take a look at this if you are interested in the inner workings of judging a person before you meet them. If you decide to continue and write on this, it would be a great read!

    I have loved many people. The only people who have loved me back are the ones that I have known all my life my family. So is it wrong to love people if you know that they would love you back?

    • I think your question is a very good question. Everyone will have different opinions but I personally think the more love the better. I think we should all love as many people as possible. We all need to feel loved.

    • I agree with the comment above, the more love the better! I don’t think there is any right or wrong person to love. If you love someone, you love them. It’s that simple.

    • I think this is a very common question that has been asked. In my opinion, one should be allowed to love whoever they want to without expecting that love in return. Some people are simply capable of loving others more easily. However, I do agree with the fact that we all want to be loved at the ed of the day which makes this topic very complicated.
