1) Start liking and accepting yourself.
2) Teach the one you currently love how to show he likes and accepts you as well.
3) Don't leave who you love, (if you have to as last resort, then you have to do what you have to do, however, only as a last resort). Teaching should come first.
4) I apologize for calling the kids I live with animals, that wasn't very nice of me. At least I know now, however, after living with them, I definitely decided to not have children my own. I don't think I could handle keeping them. If I ever got the 'urge' to have a baby again, i could always be a temporary foster parent. However, being a permanent full time parent, I don't know, I don't think Iwant to be anymore.
At least as a foster parent, after you start to get worn out by it, you can give it back, to someone else who can take over when you've exhausted yourself.
The biggest problem with having your own kids is, who would take over them after you've exhausted yourself with them when they are all yours? The idea I know that should I grow weary by them, I would be willing to sign off my legal and financial rights, give them either to someone else or the state even, if they ended up like the kids I live with now, yeah, it's better that I don't have them in the first place.
