    If Only.

    I've always found gratification in being anyone other than myself. Ever since elementary school I wanted to act and dress up as anything thats polar opposites of the real me; whatever that is. Physically, mentally, and emotionally, I began to invest myself and my time into...

    Its very hard for me to learn to love myself.

    I don't like the way I look. I don't like my personality. I don't like other things in my life which I can't change. Ever since I was a young teenager I was obsessing with all kinds of different people and wanted to be just like them. Copying them, wanting to be them basically...

    So many times I have opened up Google

    I would love to wake up one day and not feel shame at who I am and what I have become. I would love to wake up one day and feel normal, to know that I am acting and doing everything a normal 25 year old should be doing and feeling. I would love that so much. Now I just wake up...

    Why Can't I Be Proud Of Who I Am?

    I sit in silence asking myself questions like; "how much is enough?", "at what point will I have accomplished enough to be proud of who I am?", or "when can I look in a mirror and realize I'm a good person?" I am 35 years old, overweight, and disappointed in myself. I know...

    I Wish I Was My Best Friend.

    I love her, I do. She doesn't do anything or say anything that makes me feel so down about myself. I've always had low self-esteem. But lately, it gets triggered around her more because I just want all the qualities she has, and find my few own irrelevant. She's very pretty. I...

    Pathetic I Know

    There is a girl who I know of. She is beautiful and perfect. Her talents lie in art and yoga. Everything she does just seems to sparkle and shine. I want to be here sometimes. I want to be able to switch lives with her.  I know this sounds totally pathetic.

    In my life, I have succeeded by trying hard.

    I overcome my problems through hard work, research, and determination. But no matter how hard I try, I cannot change what is essentially myself. The personality I inherited from my genes can only be covered up, and only then to a certain extent. I hate that.

    Almost Lust.

    There is no point wanting to be somebody else. It is never going to happen, not ever. You can change your name, you can change your face these days, but, deep down, you're still the same person you were last time you looked. Yet it still doesn't stop me wanting it. I pine...
