    I spent a couple minutes looking through the categories I still hadn't contributed a story to before beginning this. There were a few options available to what I want to say, but this one may well address a key underlying issue about why I find myself stuck. My last job ended at...

    Be Patient With Me, Please.

    I'm a jealous person, honestly. I keep those at arm's length... I don't ask for much... But give what I can... I'm... in a way, better at making friends than keeping friends. Sobotage before the enemy steals me... I'm just nasty. I throw fits of anger at those I adore and adore...

    But none are really physical .

    I don't need a man( or female) to tell me that I'm beautiful . I know that . I also know that that's not enough so I have to prove that I'm more than that but I might not be .

    On the internet people say things about beauty,

    and I honestly don't believe them. Since I was 13 I had issues with my chest and that's about it. As I grew older I kept hoping, wishing that someday they'd finally grow and I could look the way a woman should in order for guys to TRULY be attracted to them. I sit here now at 23...

    I'm so insecure about everything.

    I hate everything about me. But I play it off like I'm not. If someone looks at me for more than 6 seconds I get Insecure.
