    Idk What To Put As A Title....

    I guess I obsess about the tiniest things like pimples and boys and hair and clothes. I'm just a normal teenager so I'm not obsessed with my weight or anything... I eat plenty because I'm a soccer player and have a high metabolism. So theres my story :)

    The Mirror Is My Enemy

    I can't use mirrors, because once I get in front of one, I will stay there for awhile. I end up having someone pull me out of the bathroom to get out of the mirror. I always find something wrong or have to fix my hair or something.

    Mirrors Are Evil

    All I see is a body I never wanted and "EATING DISORDER" on my forhead. I have confidence, and don't want to be a twig, but the more I see my body get ruined by my actions I feel disgusting. Mirrors suck.
