    A Sad and Lonely Place

    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?

    I hate to see the other girls at school.

    I'm flabby and chubby. while other are flat and thin. They have nothing to worry about but their hair. And how I worry about my weight and hair and my appearance too. How I tried to look pretty and dress better, no matter what I do. They're always better looking. I wish they had...
