    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...

    Self Doubt.

    I know noone should be insecure about themselves. everyone is to some point though, no matter how much they try. I try so hard not to be, but it doesn't do much good. I still am. I know I'm not the hottest girl on the planet. Wouldn't want to be. but sometime it would be...
