    I Was Once An Ugly Duckling.

    True story. I was fooking ugly. Mainly between the ages of 8-15. I was kind of slow growing into my own body. It wasn't balanced. At one point, my head was too big, then it was too squared, then it was too round, then my teeth were too big, then they were too far apart from each...

    When I was younger people would tell me I was

    pretty and going to grow up and be beautiful. I wish it was true . Back in 4th - 7th grade literally every boy thought I was ugly and I used to get made fun of . They would pretend to go out with me and then break up with me saying "did you really think I would date you, look...

    I had been overweight

    since age 6, with my heaviest being 215lbs around age 13. We never really had any money, so I was never really taught how to manage my naturally curly hair very well. It was always a big frizzy mess. Just to make it even more awkward, I dressed goth for a few years too...

    The Difference Between 'Then' and 'Now'

    Looking back, I remember how painful it was to be left out because I was ugly. I used to bribe them – my gold necklace, ring, so that they would let me in. Even for a day. I used to be laughed at, pushed, called names, I had no female friends. I was hurt. I played with cars...
