    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...

    But I'm Better Then Some!

    Some people just SERIOUSLY hate themselves, and I find that really sad to be honest. Sure, I've got a few negative things to say about myself but any normal human being does because no one is perfect! Including me! I'm far from the poster child of perfection and I don't mind that...

    A Series Of Missed Opportunities

    Ugh. Such a long, involved story to tell. My mother was twenty one years old when she died. I was two months old. I spent my childhood being raised by my mother's mother, who hated me. My grandmother died when I was 15. I was then left to fend for myself. I got an...

    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.

    Warped Perceptions

    But I can't really think of anything else I have going for me. I'm very shy, not particularly skilled at anything other than maybe writing short stories, I'm kinda lazy, and I think I'm really boring. I don't talk much, so I'm generally ignored once people realize there really...
