    I Really Am Not…

    I hate the way I look, I hate the way I dress & I hate the way I am! 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...

    Shipwrecked

    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 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...

    I Am Happy

    People go in search of happiness their whole lives. But when do we know when we have found happiness. We simply decide. Therefore. I am happy.

    I Know It's Bad...

    I know it's bad that I hate my body and hate the way that I have to lie to everyone for them to accept me. I've tried to show them myself and instead got shunned, so I know that I can't be that person...not for a while at least.... I know it's bad that I want to be but skin and...

    More and more I find myself wondering

    why I can't stand the thought of ME. It's a very hard thing to come to grips with.

    Lost It!

    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...

    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 Don't Know If I Ever Will Be

    I wish I was happy with myself.  I wish I could be happy.  I wish I could be proud of myself, even though I have nothing to be proud of anyways.  I don't know if I'll ever understand why I'm still here on earth, and why I'm not burning in hell like the rest of...
