    Whenever I see women in movies,

    TV, magazines, etc. I think they are perfect and gorgeous. But if I see them with my boyfriend I get extremely jealous and mad if he looks because I know I will never look like that. They don't even look like that. My boobs and butt are small and it is hard to gain weight even...

    I have always been that shy girl

    when I was younger I was really outgoing like any normal 1st-5th grader would be, but around 6th-7th grade I got told by some seniors in my school that I walk or talk weird and this girl in my class said the same thing, called me a lesbian and threatened to punch me a couple...

    first is the worst, second has the thirst,

    third is cursed, and i'm here not even in some line that categorizes me. I'm just me, not first, not second, not third. Just me, and i wish others would know that all i want to do be is accepted for who i am.

    It's so hard to have self confidence

    when my self esteem is close to none existence. I need to get a job, but every time I go in for an interview I get so nervous that I stutter and say stupid things like "kind of, sorta, um, uh, and maybe". No matter how much I practice my mind goes absolutely blank. It doesn't...

    Some days, 24 hours is too much to stay put in,

    so I take the day hour by hour, moment by moment. I break the task, the challenge, the fear into small, bite-size pieces. I can handle a piece of fear, depression, anger, pain, sadness, loneliness, illness. I actually put my hands up to my face, one next to each eye, like...

    I am lack of confidence.

    It's weird. I can make eye contact with girls but not boys. Obviously you can conclude that I've never made friends with boys. Plus I was in an all girls highschool. Now I'm in a pre-u program pretty much like college. I'm having a hard time making friends because well I don't...

    This is something I have never had- self

    confidence. I have always measured it by the way people around react to my actions. I have always let people decide my worth and guess what, I have always been proven worthless! And all that I do is sit and cry about why me? why am I always the wrong one? why do I have to get...

    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...

    I think I am pretty,

    but sometimes I get so down and worked up that opinion disappears so quickly. Whether my eyes are too big and dark or my fingers look too scrawny. Little things add up and can really eat someone alive.

    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...

    On the outside, I look really self-confident.

    My friends tell me all the time that if I wanted a girlfriend, I could literally just ask anyone. Problem is, I don't want just anyone. I want someone who I can have an intelligent conversation with. Someone who likes to write poetry, who loves art and music and dancing. I want...

    I really hate myself

    and my personality, I truly suck, I can feel like garbage and immediately pass to feel fine like in a second, and the next second I'm garbage again. I hate this feeling, its like having a crush on yourself and not knowing if you like you back.

    Self-confidence... I had plenty of

    It sucks not to be confident.

    Worrying about how you look and how other people see you is almost crippling to me. I want to be able to walk out of my house and feel comfortable in my own skin. I'm very over weight, decent height, short hair and an odd face (not that ugly not pretty). I pretend to have...
