    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...

    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'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...

    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 Wanna Be Me

    I often find myself living in a dream world, imagining I'm someone else. Being anyone is better than being me. I my dream world, I can be loved, and successful - it's not that easy in real life

    I sometimes really just…hate myself. My flaws. My anger. My attitude. Myself. Me. I hate how emotional I am. How shallow I am. How I crave to be loved. I hate that I care. That I get so caught up in stuff that doesn’t matter. I have that I cant understand people...

    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...

    That's Not Who I Am

    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...

    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 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...
