    I Don't Know Where Else To Put This

    Well, basically, I've been going through my whole life with low self esteem. Ever since I can remember, even when I was 4, I've never really had much to look forward too. My family was broken apart, I was full of anger, and being taken away from my home to live with my mom...

    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...
