    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...

    So I watched the final episode of The Office

    (US) and as anyone would - I cried. So I'm 18 and I'm contemplating what I'm doing, I don't have a girlfriend or any love interest and as much as some of you regurgitate "you have your whole life for that" I would rather meet someone I like young and spend time with them than go...

    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...

    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, 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...
