Everyone Has Something Beautiful About ThemWhen I was a child and a young teenager, I was always made fun of because of the way I looked. As a child, I had greasy, knotty hair and I developed very young. I had breasts at nine years old that were fully developed by the time I was eleven. I also smelled bad, too because I hit puberty...I didn't know I was supposed to wear deodorant yet---everyday! Students as well as teachers made so much fun of me. Teachers used to gather in a room and take me in there to show me how to put a bra on. Family members used to show me how to wash my hair and I heard people talk about me whenever I left the room.
Then when I turned twelve, I had extremely horrible acne. Red, bulbous and shiny. All over my face. It didn't go away until a few years ago when I turned sixteen. Anyway, had no true friends then because of course they'd make fun of the way I look. People used to take pictures of my face because of my horrible acne. By that time I had tried so many things to be beautiful...I cut my hair, wore tons of makeup and I suffered from anorexia. People always told me I was fat as a whale even though I was 5ft 4" and weighed only 98 pounds.
So I had to switch schools when I was a sophomore.
Then it got better. It's then when I made true friends. My acne started to go away and I started to eat normally.
Now, as a Senior in high school, people often tell me I'm beautiful. I have glowing skin with absolutely no acne, long blonde hair that goes down my back, a tiny, flat belly and a full size C cup. Wherever I look, I turn heads. It's very hard for me to believe it when people tell me I'm pretty. This is all new to me. I am just starting to feel beautiful.....and those first 16 years of my life sucked so hard that it shaped me into the beautiful ON THE INSIDE person I am today. All the pressure turned the coal into a diamond :)
Anyway I just wish this would never happen to anyone else, the verbal abuse I mean, and I wish everyone felt beautiful and remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Everyone has something beautiful about them.
