    This Happens To Me At Work All The Time

    Someone will ask me what my race is... or what am I mixed with... or a guy will say my eyes are beautiful & ask me what nationality I am and when I tell them that as far as I know I am entirely Caucasian..they always answer the same way no matter how they frame the question: with...

    Not Quite Hating Myself, But...

    It's actually rather simple.I'm a quiet, shy person. I prefer hiding and being where others can't see me, like the internet. I'm shy of people and prefer doing silent things by myself, like reading, writing and drawing.My body and mind disagree with my soul. I am a large-boned...

    I'm... I Don't Know - But I Don't Like It

    It doesn't happen at a particular time or place or in any specific situations... Just sometimes, suddenly, I feel completely uncomfortable with myself, inside myself. I feel gross, ugly, disgusting, and extremely self-conscious of it. I feel like every bad thing about me...

    It Makes Things Awkward

    It is hard to be in skin that doesn't seem to fit.  It makes you move in awkward ways.  If you are comfortable in your skin, you won't understand.  But, if you are, you know...  When the skin doesn't fit, it pulls in weird ways.  It stretches, and...

    I have never been fully undressed in front of a

    lover, in fact, I attempt to leave on as much clothing as possible. As soon as I get out of bed, I'm scrambling for my jeans so I won't be seen. For once in my life, I just want to be free. I want to stand before you, exposed and vulnerable. I want you to see me, in every angle...

    The Blue Pill Or the Red Pill

     I have always felt like I don't belong in it. I spent 16 years trying to make it fit how small I really feel.  I just wish i felt like i was one with myself like so many people i know seem to feel. I guess seem being the key word.

    Polly

    One morning somebody was crying, but mornings were often noisy: fights about getting up on time and complaints about nightmares. Polly was so quiet, so unobtrusive a presence, that we didn't notice she wasn't at breakfast. After breakfast, we could still hear crying. "Who's...

    Weight Room

    As my luck would have it, I'm stuck in a personal fitness class at my school. You might ask why I'm doing this. Maybe I love going to a gym. Maybe I want to get fit. Surprise---I'm in this class because, if I'm not, I'll never graduate. I've always been more...

    I don't have a therapist to talk to,

    so this will do. I absolutely cannot stand myself. The more I age, the less I can stand the physical, though that has always been an issue, lately it seems insurmountable. The internal part of me is ridiculous. I feel so empty, so nothing. I have no talents, no dreams. I have no...

    Yesterday I moved all my jeans into our room.

    I had recently dropped a size, so I was bringing all the smaller sizes in. I must have been wearing yoga pants and leggings for too long, because I went to put some jeans on this morning, and surprisingly, NONE of them fit. Yay, right? But I have no idea how it happened...

    Why can't I find solitude within myself?

    So critical, like a blade against my skin, a bow pulling arrows through my heart strings. I can't ever feel okay in my own skin. Too fat. Too tall. Too pale. Too tan. I can't seem to satisfy myself. I don't want to disappoint. I watch myself eat, I watch myself starve...

    No matter how much weight I lose or how much I exercise my body will still be disgusting. I am very short but not petite, I have gigantic broad shoulders, like no chest, and no neck. I am a girl but I feel and look like a man b/c of my body. I was not blessed with any nice...
