When I was in 3rd grade, I moved to a new county and was the new kid. I was under the impression that everyone was nice, I was wrong. I remember getting teased about how poofy and curly my hair was. I got insecure about it and began wearing it up all through the rest of elementary school. When I got to middle school, things got pretty bad. I was made fun of for my bad acne, I got called a slut, teased about having small boobs, and many other names. I tried so hard to fit it and make people like me instead of just being myself. All of the things that were said to be really hurt my self esteem. I'm currently in 11th grade and I'm almost 17 and I still am insecure about the things I was when I was in 6th grade. I dislike my hair, I don't like going out without makeup on. But you know what? I have and am currently learning how to love myself and become comfortable with who I am. I know that I am an amazing person and I know that I am beautiful. I am the only ME there is and I will be the best damn ME I can be. You were uniquely and beautifully designed. There is no other you. So be yourself and love yourself for who you are.
