Never Enough

I'm constantly comparing my bodies to others, and it kills me inside because it makes me feel to ugly/fat/gross/not normal
I know that i'm not that i'm not completely any of those things... but i can't help but become completley overtaken with depression and hoplesssness every time I look in the mirrior......
The pain hurts so much because I don't think i'll ever be good enough for myself... I will always feel ****** about the way i look, and I can't make myself pretty... I just can't bc i feel like my face is just so ugly and grosss..... the thought of all this makes me hurt so much inside.... I';; look at someone really pretty or skinny calling themselves fat or ugly and i want to shake them and tell them how georgeous they are, and their stupid for thinking their not, i mean look at me.... they have something to live for because of the way they look, i don't......

It should also be noted that every other girl in your school is probably feeling exactly like you.

Sweetness, look at that statement right there for a moment. You made that statement. you can see it for others, but you can't see it for yourself. You may not understand it right now, but someday you will: brains and talent trump looks every time, and so does a good attitude. I see from your byline that you're between 13 and 15 years old, right? I remember being that age, and how much it sucked. But I'm gonna tell you just like the videos on U-tube: it gets better. You aren't going to be an awkward teen-ager forever, hon. These are not going to be your best years, and there are amazing and wonderful things waiting for you. Just get through these years as best you can, and when you leave home and go to school or join the work force or the military or whatever cool thing you decide to do, your life is gonna blossom.

The most important thing you can do at this time is decide that no matter what, you are going to be a friend to yourself. You treat your other friends well... why wouldn't you treat yourself as well as you treat them? If you ever need to talk, leave me a note and I'll listen.



cheers!
