    When I was in 8th grade,

    I met this girl and she was like instantly my best friend, we were so close, we told each other everything. We would ignore our other friends and go off by ourselves to hangout and talk about everything. Nothing is awkward with her. We both speak exactly what is on our minds and...

    I Am Me Not Her.

    For years I have been compared to my sister. We are not twins but oh they do think of us as twins. My parents as well as my entire family would make us look, act, and dress like twins. Everywhere we went we were forced to dress the same, have the same hair , eat the same meals...

    My parents always compare me to a stranger

    that they are not fat and that they are skinny, I hate that my parents does that but I love them very much. Sometimes they embarrass me in front of people. But they are my parents, and I know that they love me a lot I am always going to be there when they them.

    I'm tired of being compared with my twin sister.

    We may look like the same but we aren't...it hurts to be the bad twin. Not a lot of people know how it feels like.

    I have always been compared to my sister.

    ... even though we are nothing alike. I prefer the peaceful serenity of the night, whereas she is the pretty pixie loving the daylight. I get things like "Your nothing like her." or "Why aren't you like your sister?". It's annoying. We react differently. I handle pain with a...

    My step dad compared me to my brother (his son)

    today. I looked him in the eye and I could feel the anger and rejection filling mine. Your son is a pedo*****! He molested me! He touched me! He was my first kiss! He took everything from me! How could you compare ME to THAT? How could he compare ME to THAT? My mother says that...

    Kinda Bothers Me

    I look a lot like my boyfriends ex gf. I think he had some sort of separation issue with her when she broke up with him. It took him forever to tell me all the things he did, and I took a chance on him. I'm happy, but I feel like he's afraid to lose me. I tell him I'm nothing...

    So yeah, I'm 15,a guy,

    and I'm around 5'2. I'm tired of just being shorter than my classmates, and being compared to them. I'm thin too, but not too thin. I don't know if I'll grow, maybe I'm a late bloomer. I'm my mother's height and my dad is just a bit taller than me. I feel like I'm being crushed...

    People have these perceptions of others

    as if just by looking you can tell who someone is. How do you know what someone is like if you never get to know them? How can you say "girls they are all the same" if you never take the time to see the qualities that set us apart from one another? You cant judge a book by its...

    I feel like I get compared to my brother a lot,

    especially when we have cousins or friends of my parents come over. They compliment my brother a lot on how GOOD he is at sports, how he did AMAZING in that game, how WONDERFUL his footwork is. And then there's me. They turn to me and I can feel them comparing me to my brother...

    Being a twin, especially a fraternal twin,

    ******* SUCKS sometimes because of this reason. Like... my sister has ALWAYS been the "pretty twin" and I used to laugh it off but recently it makes me want to peel my face inside out and dive into a pool full of acid.

    I'm my own complete person.

    I'm always being compared to my cousin by my family. How I never have my shoes clean (while hers shine) to how we dress. She has her style and I have my own. I think I'm entitled to dress how I want. Some friends (who never kept in touch after high school) would always tell me...
