Small town, Illinois
I find myself lately not accepting who I am. Is it unnatural to feel the need to change oneself?
I know I'm insecure and self-conscious but why? People always ask me why when I tell them that. I don't know why I am. I just feel that I can't accept someone like me. People tell me I have a "great personality" and I'm "Very nice", "Caring", "Sweet", and most of all "Cute". I be polite and say "thank you", but deep down their words mean nothing to me. But these are my closet friends saying things like this. Don't you think their opinion count? Most time yes, yes they do.
Am I that vain to think that my appearance is more important then whats on the inside? Am I that conceited and shallow..? Am I teetering on the line of self-conscious and vanity?
Why can't I just get over it and accept myself?
