    When In Rome...

    I will be frank, however much I try to deny it, highschool does have the sterotypical affect on my so called 'fragile' teenage mind. It has been ingrained in me since birth that if I do not acheive total victory in the GPA race then I am worth nothing. Adding on another layer to...

    themselves are the ones who for some reason don't understand. It's not a choice feeling this negativity on ones self, it's something you feel over time over the things that have happened and after the way the mind thinks. Maybe it shows that we aren't very "strong" but there isn...

    but I'll just first say that I can't do anything remarkable. I'm not special. I'm not good at anything. I'm just ordinary. I try so hard to change that, but nothing I do is good enough. I'm slowly starting to rethink all of this. I'm starting lose hope. I'm not seeing a...

    A Piece Of Trash...

    Ugly, disgusting, worthless, untalented...these are the words I use to describe myself. Pretty much between the ages of five and 17 I was described as this by everyone around me so this became my identity. I knew the ugly thing must have been true because it is reinforced by the...

    Very

    I dislike almost everything about my physical appearance. I feel I will never be pretty, or feminine, or worthy. I'm not sure exactly where this view got started, but it has been reinforced by other people for years. When I look in the mirror, I see fat and ugly.

    How do you undo close to 20 years of verbal, emotional, and physical abuse?   I mean, not all of it is my own doing.. you get told that your fat, ugly and worthless and you start to believe it don't you.  What I learnt, was that I was my own worse enemy.  ...
