    I like who I am but know i can be better.

    I have trouble with people who think they have a right to judge who i am and what i look like. I look like a super model and i guess bc I'm small in size that entitles people to make comments about my weight!! Man oh man, how i wish i can curse people out and tell them how rude...

    I am working so hard to be a better person

    and I am learning that it is more difficult than I thought it would be. I find myself getting closer to breaking down each time I reach for greatness. I feel like I am getting worn down. I just want to be a better someone, even if it can't be a better me.

    I think being a better person begins with

    accepting myself how I am first. How can I put forth the effort necessary to improve something I do not love? I am a human being. I have thoughts, dreams, hopes. I feel. I am flawed and I hurt people. I am kind and I help people. I would like, always, to be the kind me...

    when I can go to the People that said "you'll never be anything." And simply say "but look at me now."

    I have to be honest. I've been starving

    for attention and affection for so long. I have become vulnerable and gullible. I'm setting myself up to get hurt and the sad part about it is that I know it.

    So, this year has been full of disappointments,

    And compared to a couple years ago,

    I am. I just miss my old callous self sometimes. This caring thing confuses me sometimes and the way I was made it easier to be insular. To be safe. Maybe I'll figure it out eventually.

    A letter- I decided

    that it's about time to just focus on me. To love myself unconditionally. I've not only neglected but I have been so abusive to myself. I have put others needs before mine, and not once stopped to think about what I even really wanted. I have never been in a serious committed...

    Do you believe that people can change,

    if so...do you believe that person should stop hanging out with people who either won't change with them or tries to make that person remain the same, or should you try to help them grow with you. yet what if they don't grow as much as you nor do they care to. what then, what if...

    I want to work out and get a great body. Be so ripped and then the shallow girls that would not want to date me because I was small I can just tell them to screw off. I have fantasies of that and that's what motivates me to work out everyday. I'm getting closer and closer to...

    It doesn't help that I surround myself with

    or drinking doesn't solve my problems and I know it's so wrong for me to want to do that just so I won't feel the sadness, loneliness or the pain every day. I want to make it all go away honestly.

    If someone in your life makes you forget your

    past that someone is surely your future. But it doesn't mean that you should forget your past. You should learn from it, build on it, and move forward together.
