    Why I Am "precious"

    I feel ugly. I'm very insecure. I'm not as big as her but I've always been on the curvy side. I dont have many friends. I keep to myself and dont have many people to talk to.

    I am precious! Because God has created me that way. I know it took for me some time to know that I am. However, God has always has its own ways of telling us or reminding how precious we are no matter how much we denied it. We often denied it because we are blinded by bad...
