    I used to feel this way

    and I used to have very low confidence in myself. I refused to talk to anyone, I refused to include myself in anyone's conversations and anyone's parties. I was the wallflower that stayed silent. my family hardly knew who I was inside because I never spoke. I walked with arms...

    Some days I wish I could see myself the way

    other people do. I lost a lot of my self confidence when I was with my ex. He put me down so many times that he made me believe I wasn't good enough for anyone. Even cheated on me behind my back.

    ****. This theme... So,

    three years ago, I had acne. I had literally my face covered with acne. I went to a dermatologist and I did treatment for a year or two. Now, although I have no more acne, I have the marks on my face. And every time I look at the mirror I remember all the looks I received during...

    When i was a kid i use to be over confident

    and full of energy and never had a problem socializing after years of being picked on and betrayed i isolated my self and contained my emotions. Ive opened up a lot more while growing up but i still hide in the shadows sometimes

    In 2015 I will like myself.

    That's what I'm going to write on my dry erase board for New Years. I'm tired of caring what people think and being so hard on myself. I am not an ugly woman. I just have a lot of flaws. My health caused a lot of what's going on with my appearance and I just need to accept it...

    These last two years have been

    such a growing experience. Like my advice is so good now. I thought I was mature when I was 14 and now I look back and I just think about how immature I was back then. I've grown since then and my way of thinking is completely different. I feel so proud of myself, I set my mind...

    I feel like I'm more myself on ep

    than on Facebook. Being able to express myself on this site feels like I am free. On Facebook its a fear to post because of judgements or not receiving enough likes. Hopefully one day I can post in Facebook without insecurities but right now I need time.

    Just remember this...

    if someone is putting you down, hurting you emotionally, making you feel like crap because of something you say or do, because of how you look, or because of the things you like - just remember that THEY are the ones with the problem. Not you. They hate themselves or something...

    My whole life I've been bullied.

    Since primary school I've been called every name under the sun, and expected to keep quiet. Now everybody thinks they can push me about and that I'm the verbal punchbag of the class. Retaliating doesn't help, I've walked out on numerous occasions, stood up and yelled but it...

    Please ******* support girls

    who find comfort in makeup and always use it because they don't feel good without it, don't tell them they should not use it. We do not use it to attract boys, we use it to feel good about ourselves. The "makeup is why you take a girl swimming in the first date" is a ****** up...

    Self-confidence... I had plenty of

    as of right now, on my 14th birthday after a horrible 13. I've made a new Facebook as I am trying to leave behind my past as well as everything linked to my past now, and I would like to your opinion on which picture will make a better first profile picture.

    It's a fact that there will always be people

    out there who are smarter/more attractive/funnier/whatever than you. Knowing this, I basically can't be confident. No matter how well I do at something, there will always be someone better than me.

    I am working on it. I think I am doing alright.

    The past month or so, I have not gotten upset when people insult me. I do a mental "**** you" and brush it off. I don't go home and cry about it. Just a few minutes ago, a man came and sat next to me at the bar because that was the only space available. It was obvious he didn't...

    I am a mess of tangled dark hair

    and dried chapped lips. Chipped nails on fair skin. Piercings on this delicate face. I swallow bubble gum and bite my nails. I am emotions and long cardigans. I take a different route to the same place everyday. I smile at strangers and keep them company. A stranger drinks me up...
