    My Self-Worth...

    I'm very hard on myself. When I was younger, I wasn't. Didn't care what people thought or said about me. Just lived my life. When I got to high school, I was content until my sister graduated; then I was alone. Didn't have any friends. I mean none. So I began to be content in...

    How To Change Me.

    I hate everything about me and I get so upset about it sometimes. I really want to change the way I think because it is beginning to affect everything. I have no confidence and no self esteem and I really need to build them up again to be me again.
