    I've always been shy in got really bad in

    Sometimes all you need is a hug

    and a tap on your shoulder saying... "Come lets drive away far from here so that you will temporarily forget your problems."

    It sucks to be afraid to walk alone at school

    without friends, its awkward to go shopping alone, its embarrassing to eat alone at the cafeteria. My old profile pic was the only pic I was happy with and now I'm changing it to boost up my self esteem in front of people. And when people ask for my photo, that doesn't mean I'm...

    Why can't I just love myself,

    I can never see the good things about myself. I hate it so much.

    I try to pretend like I don't hate myself 90%

    My entire life is spent thinking "how can I

    improve the way I look". "If only I could lose a few pounds". "If only my nose was shorter, my hair longer, my teeth whiter" I feel inadequate. I prefer being alone. Where no one can judge me.
