    Sometimes I look at the men

    who show some interest and the women they usually date and then I laugh. I just laugh at myself in the mirror. These women are so beautiful and me? Just on the inside. It makes me sad to think they would want to be seen with me, show their friends me and be proud of me when they...

    I'm Just The Same Color As The Wall Paper...

    I miss being seen. I miss being smiled at. At home I was something. I didn't just blend into the wall paper. Easy as ignoring sadness. My sadness. If I was beautiful people would see me. I would shine right? My room mates would smile more if I was shone with something. Maybe I...

    and fit the list of what makes girls pretty. But even if I had everything on the list, someone would find a way to make me ugly. Who relates?

    My Mask Is My Identity

    I am not beautiful. I'm not even cute. My boyfriend would disagree and while I'm grateful to him, I still wallow in my little pool of self-pity. Every day, I look in the mirror and think, "If only my breasts were bigger." "If only my eyes were prettier." "If only I didn't have...

    But I just feel ugly from the inside out

    for the first time in my life. I've always been over weight but that never bothered me. I felt beautiful and I was confident, so much so that I was actually intimidating to people. Now I'm just another sad fat girl.

    It’s funny, I do not want to be deemed as shallow but somehow that seems inevitable. It is not other people’s looks I’m obsessed with rather than my own flaws. When it comes to others I inexplicably begin to trace their best features, knowing in my mind that everyone...

    We are all beautifully flawed. Don't society fool you. We are all beautiful human beings. But we are all different as well. Truly look in the mirror and see yourself. You are all beautiful as you are.
