    Insecurity

    I don't share this to tell a story, but rather ask a question that I hope will help me and everyone else here too. How do you learn to accept yourself unconditionally? How can it be easier for me to do this to others, but not myself?

    Whenever I'm on Instagram

    or tumblr I somehow come across supermodels or just extremely attractive people and I know it's easy to just say "avoid social networking sites" but it's not that simple. it's almost like an addiction to remind yourself that you'll never look like them. Torturing yourself...

    Feeling Ugly

    I've always had issues, from anxiety to family to trust but I feel my worst issue is my insecurity. "You're pretty", "Why are you even worrying about that?" "Get over it" and more things similar to the previously listed. I don't know what exactly started the insecurity. I mean I...

    The Green Eyes

    I, like many of us, have moments of insecurity. However, my moments are not few and far between, no no. The feelings come when I wake up, through the day, in the evening, when I go to bed, and in my dreams. I have always been shy at first, until I get comfortable, but even then...
