    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?

    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 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?

    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...

    My confidence has been knocked

    so many times. I rarely go out now and when I do I get nervous. I used to be really confident and outgoing but now I'm more closed in and a little too scared to let anyone in.

    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...

    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...

    The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.

    I heard it was about a tree and a boy. The tree was generous. Very generous, in fact, it may have been too generous. Perhaps a better word for the tree would be altruistic? Being altruistic is giving too much of yourself to someone else and not leaving...

    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...
