    Every time I look at myself in the mirror,

    a jarring sense of disassociation and disbelief strikes me: "That's not me. That can't be me..." What follows is a cruel realization that I will always be stuck in my body.

    What I see in the mirror physically sickens me

    sometimes. It makes me want to vomit. I hold an undeniable hatred for my body. I can't even bear to look at myself sometimes.

    now with all of the obsession over curvy women, it has started to make me wish I was curvy. It truly is a beautiful shape to have. I have a body close to what models have, I'm just not as tall and I have a little bit of a stomach, its not super flat. My boobs aren't the smallest...

    Short, curvy, voluptuous,

    hourglass. That's me. Sounds ideal to some, but the stick figure look is all anyone pays attention to around here. I have never been comfortable with my figure. I feel like I want to hide away from the world sometimes because of it.

    I think it's pretty natural to think like this

    with a mother that always mention how big I am. Other people say that I'm not fat at all, but my family (relatives) thinks otherwise. Therefore, I can't help but think so too. Now I'm pretty much fearful of showing my torso to others.

    I don't like it for complicated reasons.

    It feels wrong, like it isn't really mine. Like my own skin is a shirt that's far too small. Idk, that's the only way I can describe it. It's just... wrong.
