    The Greatest Gift Of All..

    I use my imagination to make up for all the things in life that I don't have or wish I could get rid of. I imagine dialogs, situations, people, friends, families, cities..everything. No, I do not have schizophrenia, I just prefer to be in my own world where I get a say and where...

    Why.

    No matter what I do, how much makeup or clothes I buy, I always feel repulsive. Especially when I'm out with my best friend. I can forget about it sometimes, but its always lurking in the back of my mind... I probably sound paranoid, but I wouldn't be asking people online...

    I  cover up when I go into public

    Guys often show interest in me.

    They flirt and eventually tell me I'm pretty or whatever, but it doesn't feel genuine. I feel like most men will flirt with anyone with a vagina. For once, I just want to be told I'm beautiful by someone who actually truly means it. I feel insecure about so many things, and I...

    All it takes is one person to call you ugly

    and then everyone else who said you're hot and attractive and sexy doesn't feel like they're being honest. For me it's a bit of both. Some call me ugly, some call me good looking. Honestly I don't think I'm good looking. So I tend to believe I'm ugly more than I'm good looking...

    Thanks to my non-hodgkins lymphoma I have a big

    I feel stupid for hating my flaws

    I don't party or whatsoever because I feel it's not for me. I even don't attend our senior's night. But now when I'm feeling low I just bear in my mind that someday I'm gonna be a better person than I am now. Like Christina Aguilera's song - I am beautiful no matter what they...

    Just One Little Word

    Hi, I was just turning thirteen last year when this happened. It scarred me for months and months. Stupid really, considering it was just one word. My friends and I had just sat down after a thrilling game of "steal-the-bag-and-hide-it". As you can tell, we were very original...

    so, I am about 5'2 and I'm 155 pounds.

    I don't feel pretty, ever. I used to be a swimmer, so I was tiny. Now that i'm in college and I don't play sports, I gain weight more than I am used to. I hate my body and the way I look. I want to be skinny again.
