I Am Uncomfortable In My Own Skin

it sometimes doesn't fit 343 People

    I Wish I Could Change It

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
