What is something that you wish you could change about yourself? My smile. My eyes. My acne. My face. The way I see myself. If there is anything I wish I could change about myself, it would be my social anxiety. I have lost so many friends and so many opportunities of making friends, due to the fact that I have always been too afraid to speak. I wish I could find a way to get the words out. I wish I could change how I see my body I know I’m not overweight but since gaining back 40 pounds from anorexia. I can’t help but feel disgusting. I wish I could change my sexuality so my dad would accept me again. I’m never happy with who I am unless I prove it to myself. I’d like to be okay with who I am even when I’m not doing anything. I’m extremely sexual but as a girl, it makes me feel like a whore. Hate that girls feel that way. Like if they have a sexual side to them that they have to hide it and suppress it, but it’s okay for a man to sleep with multiple women because that makes him a stud. But for a female, if she expresses any sexual desires and all of the sudden, “Yeah, she is a whore” but she’s not. It’s just normal human nature. I often see myself as an alien compared to other girls my age. I feel like no one else struggles and everyone lives a perfect life. I wish other people would open up more. What is something that you wish you could change about yourself? It says “my smile, my eyes, my acne, my face, the way I see myself” That’s a lot of stuff. There’s a smile that you make for photographs like a fake smile like You know and then there’s like the real smile that comes from real joy and real accomplishment and real interpersonal relationships with people That is like impossible to capture in a selfie. You know, that’s like your real smile, like look for your real smile Look for- look for like the real light behind your eyes and learn to look at that person, learn to love that person You know get that stuff that you can buy online that you put on your face for your acne. It works. I guess that’s what they say on the commercials. Sometimes I wish I could change my ethnicity. I feel like no matter how far I get, it’ll always be easier to be white. It’s gonna be hard for you no matter what complexion you are, but I get this. When I was younger, I- I can definitely side with that. But as I’ve grown up and I’ve started to love myself, and value all the things that I bring to the table as well as my nationality or background or ethnicity has to offer. I am so proud to be who I am.
