    See The Beauty

    Okay so someone posted a very nasty comment about my face on here, so he inspired me to write this. I am going to explain each part of my face that I think is beautiful. First lets start with my eyes. My eyes come from my mother. My eyes give my face more expression. My...

    Not Gonna Let It Bother Me Anymore!!! This Ends Now!

    I will never let the likes of anyone effect or change the way i feel about myself anymore. I use to care what others thought, but in the end its all up to you. Noone can change how you are and what you look like. In god's eyes you are perfect, for anyone to tell you otherwise...

    Being Me

    Well what can I say, I'm different! I make some people laugh and others I tick off! My friends have a hard time describing me other than just saying I'm just me! Also they say if I were a cupcake I'd be rainbow flavored! XD I'm only 2/3 crazy.

    I believe that's all everybody wants.

    To feel we belong, we strive for perfection or feel insecure because we do not feel accepted for who we are. What we look like, how we feel, our life choices. Allife I've been looking for acceptance and I never found it, I've never felt I belong or fit in anywhere. There was...

    Self-acceptance

    This is wonderful, the emotions I feel, the blood keeping me warm, the immeasurable thirst I embrace and the "now" that unfolds before me each and every moment. I like this. This life, this time, this me. Almost insane, but it feels so liberating to be unbound by fears, by...

    I Don't Know What Changed It For Me, But It's Awesome!

    I used to hate myself and be depressed a lot. I used to sabotage friendships and relationships, thinking deep down that I didn't deserve it. I used to believe that other people were far better than me, and that they could ruin my life and there was nothing I could do about it. I...

    But I can't, I open my mouth and my opinions come out. I have a huge laugh, it sneaks out often.  My face is expressive.  I get hurt and try to hide the pain and anger, but it too gets away.  I think a naughty child is funny and try to hide my giggle.  When I am lonely and...

    Don't Pretend To Be Something You're Not.

    As the late John Lennon once said: "You don't need anybody to tell you who you are or what you are. You are what you are!" That being said, i have learnt in life that you can't change yourself to be liked by someone. Nothing good ever comes out of it. It'll be good for a while...

    I'm a very straight forward person.  There's not much mystery to me.  I say what I feel and mean what I say so I'm one to put myself out there and just be me, knowing it can mean rejection or it can mean making a real friendship connection with another person.  And I wouldn't...

    I Must Care About ME

    I need to be me- do what I want, and not what others think I should do. I'm a horrible people pleaser, I live to please, and when I can't make someone happy, I turn my feelings inwards. I need to be free- I can't live my life pushing myself beyond my means in vain in an effort to...

    I Always Want To Be

    You know what I really want? Never lose my sensitivity, Even when sometimes it „scratches“ my soul, Because without it, I couldn‘t feel myself.I wouldn’t be real...I am myself and I always want to be.

    I am one of the people

    who love the why of things. I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can't be helped.
