    Broken Mirrors

    I've hated my body for a long time. It was never thin enough, or strong enough, or curvy enough. Everyone would tell me "Oh, you're so skinny!" and I know I am, but I don't want to be. I'd want to be curvier, so I'd try and gain weight. Once I did that, I felt disgusting and I...

    Thanks, Max.

    When I'm in a room, I just have this awful, sick feeling in my stomach. I KNOW that nobody is actually looking at me, but I feel like everybody is watching me and judging me. I was finally getting over my issues in sixth grade. I had moved to a whole different city that year...

    I am a 17 year old girl

    who has low self-esteem and confidence. I honestly am shy of my looks. Some of the boys in my class would make fun of me for being ugly. I used to ignore them but one time, they couldn't stop insulting me which caused me to cry and rip their notebooks. I was so shy and furious...

    Okay I am confident with my image

    but I'm using this experience to talk about someone else. My best friend is beautiful. She is honestly beautiful. Everyone tells her so but the problem is she doesn't think so. Is she stick thin? No. Yes, she's a little on the chubby side, which really doesn't bother me. Is her...
