21 Dec 2013: Don’t.

Don’t bother, please.

I am not pretty like the other girls. I wish I could say that my intelligence compensates enough for my lack of aesthetic appeal. But I would be lying, and we wouldn’t want that.

Maybe that’s why I’m so drawn towards the beautiful, the pleasurable, the ethereal, the elegant. Maybe it’s because I’m compensating for the things I lack.

Maybe that’s why I submit myself to these physical tortures. Maybe that’s why I starve myself — eating only a small bowl of oatmeal, twice a day. Maybe that’s why I’m so hellbent on proving that though I’m not pretty, though I’m not that smart, hell I’m skinny.

    1. I agree. But we can’t deny that societal pressure eventually takes it toll on people, especially on teenagers and young adults. One’s self-esteem can only take so much and sometimes we can’t help it that our emotions cave in on us. :(
