A Month of Truths

I have made my decision. I will be attempting NaBloPoMo again this year. In order to give myself something to look forward/plan to write about I am also going to to attempt 30 Days of Truth, which was suggested to me by the lovely Heather. This may get a little awkward, difficult, funny, sad, fun, etc, so whether you are just passing through or a returning reader, welcome to a glimpse into my life.


Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.


My brain. It is the reason for a lot of my unhappiness in life. I think too much. I over analyze far too much, which often leads to me thinking that everything is about me, and not in a good way. This happened once where my roommate wrote a song and I totally thought it was about me trying to steal a guy from another girl, when really it was based on her watching too much tv.
I can walk into a conversation and immediately think people are talking badly about me. It's what makes it very difficult for me to make friends sometimes.
My brain also is at fault for my self-image problems. I don't want to go too much into it right now, but let's just say I am not a fan of the standards the fashion industry has placed upon women. The world has told us for far too long how we should look, act, feel, etc. And unfortunately, my brain succumbed to it all, but that's changing.....

Tomorrow's truth: Something you love about yourself.

  3. Ah, but it's easier to believe when someone takes the time to say so, so thank you. <3

  4. I think even worse than the standards the media has us believe about ourselves, is the standard of beauty that the media has us believe about others. Too many people dating horrible people, because the media has told them that a certain physical form is more important.
