    Found out a few days ago that my grandma was talking crap about me to my brother's girlfriend when they were visiting with her last month. Not only did I find out that she's been thinking all of these things since I was just a little kid, but I found out from someone my grandma...

    Nope

    i criticize myself. im too fat, even though i dont weigh much. sometimes just because a person looks like they have it good doesnt always mean that they do. I hate hiding, but most of the time you have to since nobody really even cares about you meaning me. Nobody ever really...

    I Am My Own Worst Enemy

    Sure, there's all this pressure from peers, magazines, the media in general. But what are you supposed to do if you're harshest critic is yourself? No, I don't think I will ever be good enough for anyone else, that's been made obvious for the last 18 years. But it's even harder...

    Truth

    The truth always hurts no matter how much you hide it. It always shows in your eyes. All the chill runs through your heart. You complain it's a lie but deep down you know that their right. Deep down your afraid it's the truth. Your afraid that they know something you don't.

    Waiting In The Distance

    I'm still waiting. Waiting for someone to be okay with me just being me. Waiting for someone to not care that I'm not perfect. Whenever someone's feeling down about a lack of friendship, a relationship, or the fact that life isn't going exactly as planned, the response is always...
