    My Personal Stand Point... All Should Read. (Kind Of Long)

    I strongly believe that everyone has good self-esteem. But trying to become people to fit this ever changing picture of what is hot, or appealing negatively effects us. "if you have large boobs and a curvy body your sexy" or "if you have rock hard abs, and have no hair on your...
