I Battle With It.

I understand why I have it.

My parents divorced when I was young.

I was picked on in school a lot... I was called skeletal and pale and I had a lisp.

I had a lisp growing up so I coudln't pronounce certain words accurately.

I had braces and freckles.

I vied for my parents attention.

I was bullied.

I had a hard time making friends.

I was shy.

Anyways... all those things made me realize I had extremely low self esteeem.

Over the last few years I've slowly began to pick up the pieces and instead of wishing I was someone else began to accept myself for who I am.

Let me tell you just by doing that, my self esteem has risen.  But also to admit what I like about myself and being able to see how pretty I am for the first time in life too.  I'm glad I learned this before age 30 :) so i could truly appreciate the beauty I have been given.

You are a brave person, and I hope that you continue down your path of personal strength. A quote that often helps me through moments of doubt caused by others was said by Doctor Seuss. "Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

Hmm, I myself had similar experiences as you, nearly identical. There are a few differences but im glad to see atleast one person comming through. I have also overcome the things I had to experience when I was growing up, though loosing my memory in the process (very long story). But it's nice to see that atleast someone healed the growth way though.




Well when I meet that many people, I'll say the same thing ;)
