    Trying To Feel Worth It

    For my whole childhood, I have grown up with the idea that I had to prove my worth. I had to impress people- that was my job.  I worked so hard at that my whole life, that I have forgotten (or never learned) how to be me.  Now that I'm discovering for the first time how to be...

    "i Try To Be The Best Person I'm Capable Of Being"

    since i was a child, it's my nature to easily give something to people who don't even ask. perhaps, it's because of my naivete, the desire to help and trying to make a difference in a person's life. my seatmates in class would copy my answers to the usual tests or exams. there...
