    My Destiny

    I feel like I'm in a losing battle everyday of my life. It do feels like I'm getting closer to my destiny, some way or the other, no lie. But, at that very same time, I don't think I'll really getting there. Because I'm a failure and I'm a losing battle.

    I Want To Respect Myself

    In the past, I was not taking care of myself. But then when someone told me that I must love myself first before others, I was enlightened that I must then respect myself. That's why, I just want to feel good about myself.

    How Should I Feel?

    I'm messed up. I'm up, I'm down, I'm all over.  Coming from an abusive childhood, I never knew how to feel.  I wanted to feel happy.  I wanted to be positive, and generally today I am, even with all the memories.  However I can be super happy, or super sad- never lasts more...

    Ugly

    I want to look in the mirror and not feel disgusting. I am not happy with my body. I have made peace with my face, for the most part, but my body disgusts me. I feel that my breasts are sagging and not full enough. My areolas are too large, my breasts are too wide-set. I can't...
