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.
