    You know, I don't think I've ever been at a place of truly being happy with who I am. There are times where I'm hilarious and easy to get along with. I make tons of friends and am almost never shy. But after the social interactions fade and I find myself at my apartment alone I...

    I Really Am Not…

    I have low self esteem, lack of confident and get the stares every single day. I always focus on the negative things about me and never think of the positive. People who know me will find it hard to believe I'm very negative about myself as I spread positive energy and happiness...

    Overall It's Not Bad, But Every Day It's Unbearable!

    I know that most of what I am saying and feeling can be blamed on my age and the fact that I am "hormonal". I know what everyone would tell me (if I said anything) that I have so much going for me and I am so beautiful...etc. I know that I am fortunate and privileged, but I am...

    I'm Just Not...

    I'm not really sure why. I know there's a lot of things about me that are really awesome, but I just don't feel like thats good enough. Not good enough for other people or myself. Most of the time I'm really hard on myself if I did something wrong, or made a mistake. I just am...

    I was committing my life to education and research to assist individuals with learning disabilities or inadequate primary educations. I had a manic episode, had all my best friends at the time turn their backs on me, got kicked out of my place, and due to living circumstances had...

    I Am Glad That The One Thing I Am Most Unhappy With

    is something I can definitely change, if I'll just stick with it.I am talking about the fact that I am unhappy with my lack of enough muscularity (not enough muscles). I AM fairly strong, already, and have been working out (discontinuously) for about 3 years, now, but am still...
