    I've spent most of my life hating myself.

    When I look in the mirror I never think I'm pretty and I find a million flaws, but I've learned that for every flaw I see somebody else sees a million great things about me. And if you spend your life hating yourself life isn't fun. If you accept who you are for your flaws and...

    Be Who You Want To Be. Don't Be Someone Who You're Forced To Be.

    So I know that many teenagers and young people find it hard to live in a society where the pressure to fit in is always increasing. Because of this, young girls and boys seem to think that they need to copy what other's, maybe the people they look up to do in order to be like...

    After hating myself for years you need to stop

    and realize you are who you were meant to be . Stop wishing you were someone else you're perfect just the way you are.

    Self acceptance is one of the most important

    qualities someone as an individual should have in my opinion. Not for anybody else, just for yourself. You are you and there's no way that is going to change in your entire life, so instead of being depressed about who you are not you must be happy with who you are. There's...

    Well Maybe Not Should

    Isn t shoulding yourself a bad thing?? Wouldn t it be nice if we could all accept ourselves, is that a little better? I think it is easier said than done to accept yourself, I am completley a work in progress, and that is something I can accept, embrace and enjoy. I am...

    Learn to love and respect yourself

    for the extraordinary person you are—there is no other person in the world exactly like you—and stop measuring your self-worth by the numbers on your scale or your paycheck. There will always be people who have a better body or a better income than you, and there will always...

    You can't be someone else,

    so why bother. Just accept yourself for who you are.

    The Girl I Am

    Loving myself was something that was drilled into me, but it was something I could never do, growing up. I was as ugly as my thoughts shaped my face, knowing that I could never be beautiful, like the girls in my family. I wanted to be something that I wasn't. I thought my...

    People Used To Call Me Heartless And Monster

    Honest truth is I used to be that dark, I've accepted and came to terms with that part and am trying to do right by my own moral codes and beliefs. I know I can probably never change the past, but I'll do my best to make sure the future is bright and happy so I can maintain the...
