    Everyone has their insecurities,

    so do I, but i spend time trying to hide them. I dont like being perceived as weak, an insecure little girl with issues. I don't want to be seen that way, although sometimes I wish I did. I feel so lonely sometimes and I'm stuck with this voice in my head always judging me...
