    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 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 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...

    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 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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
