    For Myself

    It's funny how no matter what I do, no matter how much I do, I'm never enough for myself.  How does a person's self esteem get that low?  Growing up, my family wasn't perfect, but they loved me.  There were a few things here and there that I know ate away at my...

    Depending On Who You Talk To.

    The acceptence that I'm never going to be enough in the eyes of my family, is actually freeing, in a way. I am more than enough, in my eyes, and that's what's important to me and my life.
