    Why Do They Lie?

    Everyone says my perception of myself is totally skewed. But I'm tired of the lies. I;m tired of the compliments that I know are said out of pity. I'm tired of people saying i'm beautiful. I know what I am. And that's not me. It just makes me feel more sorry for myself when they...

    Enough

    Why can I not be enough for anyone? I just want to be myself, dress the way I want and look the way I want without constantly getting ridiculed about it. I like tattoos, I like piercings, I like black and skinny jeans. Why is this so bad? Even my boyfriend has to okay my tattoos...

    I Do Believe I've Done It Again

    Well, it's been a good bit of time since my last visit to this site. I am proud to say that I am finally over that chick, and that I don't regret moving on. It was one of the best things I ever did. I saw her in person over the summer, and I felt not one twitch. Nothing. It was...

    I Want To Be Perfect

    I am told I don't give myself enough credit, but I really feel like I am not good enough at anything I do. I want perfection in every single action. Everything I can do can always be better.

    Enough

    We've probably all heard some version of the adage, "when you appreciate what you have, it becomes enough." Part of me wonders if it's a lack of appreciation of self, or just a near blood-thirsty need for perfection. Whether its educational achievements or physical looks, what I...

    I have this one friend... they manage to make me feel "not good enough" any time I am anything but totally positive.  Now, I know the easy answer would be to just walk away and don't look back...but we've been very close for almost 4 years now and since I don't...

    What's Wrong With Me?

    About 2 years ago, I really liked this guy. He then went out with my best friend and kissed her right in front of me. After that whole experience, I stopped looking for guys, and I let myself go. Whenever an attractive guy would cross my vision, I would tell myself not to bother...

    Good Enough?

    I don't understand why I can't feel good enough. . . for myself. . . for anyone. . . for anything really. I feel as if I'm constantly letting people down. They expect so much >.< and I try, I push myself. It gets to the point where I just feel numb. . . nothing.

    Ever.

    Because I have days where I genuinely believe that. I believe that no matter what I do, or how far I go, Or how hard I try. Nothing I ever do will be good enough. I will never be good enough. There are days other than these, where I mistakenly believe I'm confident enough to...

    The pressure on women today to be "perfect"
