this is me...like it or not!

I can not believe that I have to post this. Someone just found out that I use to work as a stripper so now she is acting strange and she feels that I have let her down in some way. I will not bother to say who it is but I want to put some things out in the open here.

First, this is my blog...this is me. If you do not like what you read then don't read it! I am not here to be what you want me to be or think that I should be. I will not post things just to make you happy! I will not change around what has happened to me or who I am just to suit you.

Here is a brief run down of who I am. I am 27 years old and I have a beautiful 8 year old daughter. I live with my boyfriend of almost 6 years and there is a 15 year age difference between me and him. I use to work as a stripper a few years ago. I hate my current job and I do not speak to my family. I have a lot of drama past and present and if you hate the Jerry Springer show than you will hate me.

If any of these things offend you then please move on to the next blog because my past will not change and I will not live my life to make people that I have NEVER met before happy! This is me, love me or leave me alone!

Don't change a hair for me, Dawn.

We are what we are, and no one can make us change unless we want to.
All of us have something to be regretful about - but some of us don't feel regret at all - and that is our privilege. Others shouldn't judge us for it either!

Michele sent me, and you go girl!

i cannot stand judgmental people! Doesn't surprise me one bit, though, because there are many "holier than thou"'s in the blogosphere.

Just be you..

Here via michele today.

kenju~
thanks for your comment. I do not regret anything that has happened to me because it has made me the person I am today and I think I am doing pretty good for myself.

panthergirl~
I know that you have been through some things in your past also so I know that you can understand some of what I have been through.

mommak~

Michele sent me back, Dawn. I hope you didn't think I meant you should be regretful; I didn't mean that at all. I have a lot to regret, but it is a waste of time to regret - so I don't!

I did not take it the wrong way..I understand! I just don't want people to think that I regret what I have done in the past. Dancing helped me get away from Anna's father and also put food on the table and clothes on our back.

Thanks for stopping by again.

Hi Dawn. Michele sent me. Hope you don't mind me saying cause I dont really know you but I have just been scrawling back through your archives and you are awesome! It takes an amazing person to be willing to stand up to the world and shout...If you don't like me go to hell. Don't ever think about changing...you are great just the way you are.

There are a lot of small minded people in this world that look for any reason to act holier than thou. It's your life to live and live the way you want. Don't let those people get you down. Real friends won't judge you, they'll accept you as you are.

I love it that there are bloggers out there who are so brave and upfront about who they are and who they were. I'm glad that I found your blog -- and thank you for commenting on my site. I appreciate it and hope you will stop by again sometime!

thanks for your comment. I try not to let people bother me but....this person was a "friend" until she found out that I use to dance. I guess that you can't please everyone and I don't have the time to try.

johnh~
you got that right! I knew there was a reason I liked you ;-)

laura gf~
thanks for your comment. I will not forget about the things that I have been through....I can't...

Hi Dawn,
Bounced in via Michele today. Funny how some people feel a need to share disapproval "to be honest" when really, it was unneccessary. But as my old bud used to say, shrug, what can you when you live in a shoe, huh?

I can see what you mean. Why not be upfront? Everything that transpires in ones life brings you to where you're at.

A friend who can't stand you because you dance on top of world with highheels was not friend of yours, but rather a friend of what you looked like.

World is a dancefloor with some people sitting on the benches. We can either ask them to join, or leave them pondering till the dance is over.

Why would anyone care if you were or even currently are a stripper? It's not like you were an axe murderer, cripes...

Here via Michele's again :)

Sing it sister ;) Adrian has a nice saying on his blog: the house rules are "fit in or fuck off" which seems appropriate in this situation!

Love you, if you would change yourself it's too awkward. Than it isn't your blog anymore.

What's wrong with being a stripper, as long as you don't rob or kill people for money. I think that stripping is just a normal job. It's better to strip than to be dependent.

You're nice and honest about who you are and have been, that is great. I'm proud that you are so honest.

Good on you, be proud of who you are and what you've done and embrace it. It's our past that makes us who we are going to be and there can't be anything wrong with that!

Thanks for your comment...I just don't understand how someone can feel that I am such a great person until one thing "pops" up that she does not understand or want to....oh well, it's not my loss.

neotheawakening~
that was a goos way of putting it! Thanks :)

jc~
love ya too ;-)

thumper~
I always try to look on the bright side also....

presentstorm~
you are something expensive of course! I only have the best! ;)

curator~
that's what I have been saying all along. Big deal right?

twinklestar~
I love that saying...that's a smart friend of yours....I will have to pay a visit.

yara~
I can't depend on other people...never have and never will. That's just not me.

claire~
You totally understand me. That's what I thought but I guess some people just don't get it.

As a stripper, I can so understand people being judgemental- and it's sad. Having danced in your past does not define who you are as a person. You are a wonderful mom, in a healthy relationship, with a beautiful daughter, working hard to provide for your family. If someone cannot handle the fact that you swung the pole to feed your child, then screw them- they are not worthy of your time.

I know that you are not afraid to put yourself out there on your blog and I really like that. I know that you understand.

brighton~
You have such a good understanding of what I am talking about. Thank you for the nice comment. I really do not need people like that around me. It normally does not bother me but this time it did.

You go girl! You can't change your past and you are right, this is your space to talk about whatever you want to talk about. If people are offended or don't like what you say, they need to just move on.

Are you serious?

Who told that bitch her shit didn't stink?

You don't need people like that in your life, Dawn.

It is pretty simple...if you don't like me move on.....I can't please everyone. Thanks for your comment.

I really don't have time for people like that....I am too good for that BS.

Gee, some poeple.

You could have bee a stripper or anything else and I wouldn't mind. Like you say - we are who we are. Ou rpast makes us who we are today. Live and learn and all that hype.

People shouldn't be quick to judge, hell, they shouldn't judge period. If they don't like you for something you've done in the past (or are doing) they can get over it.

Some people have nothing better to do than to judge others..Who the fuck cares what you do or did..just as long as you are you and not pretend to be who you are not.
I liked your blog from the first time I read it..now that I know you were once a stripper I like it even more!! :D ;-)

Gosh, I wish I could say I use to be a stripper! When you get in your 40's you start thinking about how you should have lived a little more. Who cares what people think? If they don't like it, they can just move on and find something else to read. We like you just the way you are!
