    Who Is She?

    When I look in the mirror, I see this chubby faced, red skinned, crappy haired girl. I look down and I see awkward legs, weird feet and a big gut. But when I sit down and look at myself, I really just think I'm hideous. Overall. I thank those who say other wise, but what happens...

    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

    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 .

    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.
