    How do you love yourself?

    I have struggled with this for a long time. I'm lost and drowning and sometimes staying a float. Rarely ever do I fly. I know in order to open myself up to fully live my life I have to first love and accept myself. But how? How do I go about doing that when it is so deeply...

    Mirrors are portals of deceit.

    Our originality, obscured, behind the reflection you see in the mirror. That reflection you see, is what you want others to see because of acceptance. That person you see in the mirror wants to be accepted so they mirror those they wish to be accepted by. So exactly who, is that...

    To 'Love' yourself, may sound idiotically stuck

    up and stupid, especially as it reeks with a range of different implications. To love yourself can be ugly when you are treating others as if they are below you, treating others as if they are the ones who should be lucky that you are in their life. This breeds fear, fear of...

    There isn't anyone who knows my true hopes

    and dreams or the way my heart aches or the times I've walked days as a ghost. Pain is a torrential threat bearing down on me like a powerful storm and yet I am steeled against it. My happiness dangles delicately on an almost lost chain of hope protected behind the walls upon...

    Open Your Eyes

    You always joke around how much in love with yourself you are. No you're not, you hate yourself more than anyone else on this planet. You hate to look in to a mirror, because you know that there's somebody there who hates you more than anyone. You were taught from early on that...
