    Me

    I am an only child. My life when I was young was pretty lonely, the only people I was exposed to were my parents (whom I love dearly), and a couple of other unpleasant people. As a result my only outlet that showed me what my life could be like was TV. I saw the kids on TV going...

    Who Am I Really?

    I'm not insecure about who I people think I am, I'm insecure about who I really truly am. I have a really hard time at home with abusive parents, but my social life doesn't suffer from it. I have a fairly normal social life, some close friends, a boyfriend, I go to school dances...

    I Want To Be Someone Else.

    She is beautiful. She is confident. She is funny. She is sexy. Everything about her is perfect. Her lips, her hair, her body, her personality. I want to look like her, smell like her, taste like her. I want to have her every thought, express her every emotion, utter her every...

    I don't know where to begin, my life has been anything but fun. When I was born, I had to have the docs revive me cuause I wasn't breathing. For the first decade of my life was spent doing physical therapy. The docs said I'd never ride a bike (guess I showed them). Then of course...

    I Want To Be Someone Else

    My name is Frankie and I'm 15 years old. I have personal talents and friends whom I adore. My life is fine, save for a rocky break-up I had with my boyfriend of one and a half years. Sometimes, I think I'm okay. But most of the time, I just hate myself. I'd love to be someone...

    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...

    I'm Not Me

    Sometimes, I don't think I am 'me'. I know that sounds stupid and weird, but that's the easiest way to describe it. I feel like I should be someone else - I want to be someone else. I hate the person I am, and wish I was someone different, someone better, stronger, etc. etc. I...

    She Stole My Life

    I don't like who I am. In my head I have an image of who I want to be, but for some reason I can't make that happen. I recently reconnected with a girl I knew in elementary and she has stolen my life. Well, my "pretend life." She lives the lifestyle I wish I did, she's good at...

    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.

    I'm in my late 20's and I recently came to the realization that I didn't know myself.  For 27 years I pleased everyone else; I was the perfect daughter and the perfect friend and the perfect person.  When I was doing all those things to be someone else, I never thought about...

    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...
