    If only I could be okay with my looks.

    And my body... But I hate both and I'm not okay with people seeing me in a tank too or shorts. I don't wear skirts or shorts.

    I am really doubting myself these days.

    I don't know if it's the holidays, or my professional learning curve or what. It's hard to be me right now. Anyone else feel that way?

    I want to know what you think of me!

    I recently lost some of my self-esteem when a couple of guys pointed out the "prettiest asian they've ever seen" when they knew I was clearly near them and then said to me "you should take offense to that"

    The fact the society has made every single

    person wish they were someone that they're not, ******* kills me. I hate that I walk through school worried about what other people think of me. Because of society, I hate everything about myself

    I'm so tired of looking in the mirror

    and hating my reflection. I'm tired of people getting frustrated with me because I can't accept their compliments. It's been getting so bad I have to cover my face when I walk by a mirror or else I break down. I'm just sick of hating myself. I want to be okay with my stretch...

    Self-confidence... I had plenty of

    that when I was young. But I lost it due to some horrible life experiences. When I was young my daddy was always dtunk and hit my brother in front of my eyes... which made me a bit scared of drunk people. I got traumatized and nowadays I would never ever touch alcoholic drinks...

    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...

    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...

    ive had no feeling of selfworth

    since 1992 when i lost all my hair through alopecia and i think i hit a few ugly branches on the way down the tree. Thing is i can never imagine being close to anyone else ever.

    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...

    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...

    I'm that girl that likes to take pictures just

    to get the compliments. It boots my self esteem! And gives me more confidence in my every day life. There are those that give me a lot of crap for it but if it makes me happier, then whats the big deal?

    I just found my school photos from 3

    and 4 years ago. I hated myself back then, due to my 'terrible' skin, caused by my dermatillomania. Looking at it now, I don't see why I hated myself. I don't see an ugly girl. I still often feel like I felt back then. I am quite sure that in a few years I'll look at pictures...

    The Sad Story Of Me.

    I used to think I was pretty. Maybe in 1st grade, then I didn't care about looks, I was fine. A kid. In second grade that is when it began, my sister would always call me ugly, fat, dumb. I was a kid. I believed her. I wasn't fat. But it made me so sad. When I developed my...

    Over the years I gained some weight.

    I lost some of it but I just can't seem to lose the last bit. It's driving me insane. I hate it and it holds me back from a lot like going out in public. People say I'm not fat at all but I don't believe them. I'm so embarrassed by it. I dislike other things about myself but my...
