Definitely not, you are who you are, and your personality is the thing that makes you you! If your personality were different, or even if you didn't have one, you wouldn't be you and that's not good.

The greatest thing about being here is the fact that no one else is like you. No one can tell you that you are wrong for being you and you definitely shouldn't be ashamed of how you are.

In a word: No. Accept yourself for who you are! Life is precious and so are you.

Not at all! No one is ‘wrong’ for being themselves. A lot of people will tell you that you are ‘wrong’ for being LGBT+ (if that is your case) simply because they have seen it and grew up with it being something that isn’t proper. A lot of people who are deep into religion, will tell you that you who you are is “wrong” or a sin. But it isn’t. You should always been yourself because it’s good to be genuine to yourself in anyway of how you are. No matter what people might say is “wrong” with you, isn’t.

No you are not whether you are from a different planet being you is amazing and you are loved so embrace it.

Nope! (Unless the way you are is involves hurting yourself, hurting others, or committing a crime).

No, being who you are, makes you who you are. You have to embrace who you are and don't try and change that because you are unique in your own special way and if you change then you aren't being that special person who is yourself.

Absolutely not you are the same person you were before just because you realized that you are attracted to different people doesn't mean you aren't the same person inside and that's all that matters .Anyone who tells u differently just is kidding the,selves and u shouldn't listen to them.i was in the same situation u are in and it took me years to get over

No!! Feel free to be yourself and express who you are! We are all unique and you are in your own way.

You are who you are, and that's an amazing thing. You should be proud of who you are because you are awesome! Everyone has their sexuality and everyone experiences it differently. Feel Better :)

Depends really. If the "being the way I am" means you destroy people's lives and happiness for the sake of your own, then that would you're wrong.

Where ever you are, however you are, it's never wrong to be whoever you are! You are an individual and never let anyone tell you otherwise.
April 5th, 2016 5:17pm
Not at all. Everyone is unique in their own way and they don't need to change it, no matter what.. As long as we don't mean to hurt or harm someone, it is not wrong to be what you want to be.
May 17th, 2016 4:04pm
No, not at all. You are not wrong for being who you are and staying true to yourself. Continue being you, you're awesome just the way you are
May 17th, 2016 5:53pm
You are never wrong for the being the person you were born to be, and never be ashamed for being yourself.
May 20th, 2016 1:39pm
There is nothing wrong with being yourself. The best you can do is be yourself and not listen to anyone's opinions and just let yourself be free to express your own self.
May 31st, 2016 10:31pm
I don't know how you are, but my answer is probably "No. You are not wrong for being the way you are." .
June 6th, 2016 1:39pm
Absolutely NOT. You are the way you are because this is exactly the way you are meant to be. Accepting that you are perfectly fine just the way you are goes a long way in living life in a relaxed and happy state of mind and being.
June 6th, 2016 3:43pm
Absolutely not. You are beautiful, unique, and amazing just the way you are.
June 6th, 2016 7:18pm
You are born who you are, and being yourself is the best person you can be. Why pretend to be a person that you're not, when you can be happy being your true self?
June 7th, 2016 7:12am
ofcourse not and what you are is what you chose to be and that's the way you chose to act and think.
September 12th, 2016 7:20am
Nope, be yourself and don't feel down or ashamed of who you are. You're perfect just the way you are.
October 17th, 2016 5:26am
You're not wrong for being the person you are or way you are. Everyone has ways of acting or coping with things. It's really how you treat others that reflects you most not how you handle your emotions per day
February 6th, 2017 12:43am
You are never wrong for being the way you are. There are a lot of things we can't change about ourselves and those are the things we should celebrate. Just because other people are different from us does not make them right or wrong. We are all unique!
February 7th, 2017 8:06pm
No - everyone is who they are. The key is acceptance of that. Acceptance is difficult but is always possible. Hope is the key.
April 3rd, 2018 12:50am
No, not at all. It's hard to accept ourselves sometimes but once you do you will feel a lot more happier and confident.
August 7th, 2018 3:00am
Not in any way shape or form. You are you because you were born that way. Later on, you develop your own features and characteristics and therefore, can alter who you are and what you do. You are in control and nobody can take that experience away from you. Be happy with what you've done in life and move on from the negative.

No one is wrong the way they are. We are all human and in my eyes, being human means being unique. Everyone got their own personality and looks, genes and sense of style. Of course, it is hard to accept yourself and easier to accept others. But try seeing it from someone else's perspective. For them, you could be one of the most fun person to be with and they feel comfortable around you. This makes you special and important to them in the long run. So, in conclusion: There is no being wrong in the way you are.

I can say through my experience you are absolutely and unconditionally right for being that way that you are. It’s really hard to be authentic and able to self reflect, acknowledge who we really are deep in our hearts. I commend you for being able to do that, it take great strength. You are a wonderful person, just the way that you are. You will meet people that accept you for that and others that might not. Either way, accepting yourself is what is most important. Be out when and where you are safe to.

Nobody should worrying about what other people say. You are not wrong,there is nothing wrong with you. You have to know that are five fingers at a hand,but none of them looks the same,and this means that you are unique just the way you are. If you feel better being this way,why not?! Just live your own life,and enjoy it without thinking what people might say. Being different is something to be proud with. Have you ever thought that maybe you are right and all the rest of the people who are trying to be all the same is wrong?
