    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...

    it's so hard waking up every day and go out there, pretending...Should I go and see someone about it?! Unless there is an 50% off offer on personality transplant, then there isn't a point. I'm weak and I hate it! I think people around me can feel it. They know I'm weak, no one...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.
