“BORDERLINE”

**********************************************************************************************

Self image is something I think every young girl faces, especially in this day and age where vanity is put to be this important thing to obtain.   “There comes a time when you look into the mirror and you realize that what you see is all that you will ever be. And then you accept it. Or you kill yourself. Or you stop looking in mirrors.” ― Tennessee Williams.             And this is a quote I live by. For years I’ve struggled with how I looked. I constantly doubted myself. I always found myself miserable and then it hit me “WHY THE FUCK SHOULD I CONSTANTLY BE MISERABLE? WHY DONT I INSTEAD LEARN HOW TO ACCEPT MY FLAWS.” It’s been a struggle and it’s been hard work but each day, each month and each year I find myself being more and more confident of not just my appearance but decisions and desires. I never felt more who I am then right now and I think that’s something about coming into your 20’s. You start to know who you are, you start to know what your into, what your not, the people you wanna be around. You just learn. I’m at a point were I’m so lucky to be able to not have to fit in. I’m just me.
