    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...

    everyone has insecurity issues.

    The difference is the way we show our insicurity that become our defects. Someone talks a lot, someone is shy, someone is arrogant but every defect is an espression of our insicurity

    I'm so insecure about everything.
