I do not have to be perfect

by Jess

I like to change my perspective on how I see the world and than myself.

For my physical beauty I would like bigger breasts. I am naturally thin girl (and I am not a black girl) but I have put some weight on and I am at my ideal weight for my height. Recently I cut my hair (well I let my cousin cut my hair) and I am not too happy about the way it looks now so I trying to grow it out. I feel that longer hair will make me happier (I did have long hair before and I also associated that with being pretty).

Although I feel my face looks weird I have been commented on that it is a very pretty face. But most people think hair is the beauty indicator so I would love to have long and thick hair and bigger boobs.

I sometimes let my appearance affect me greatly. I have spent most of my time finding ways to improve my looks. I believe in natural physical beauty (and not so much as applying makeup) and I only realized that I do not show much inner beauty.

I want to be seen as very pretty and attractive person to others that I need to be perfect or else I am not good enough and that bothers me alot. And I do lose sleep over it, worrying that I am not pretty enough or wondering why I do not get compliments often. mind you, when I do get compliments I pretend it was not a big thing.

I do not think people like me much when I am too self involved, it's hard for them to understand. But when I take time to have fun, listen and entertain or tease I notice that people esp boys are happy in my company.

im kinda confused
by: shaniece

what did being black have to do with your story??
just wanted to ask


you shouldn't be so concerned about your outer beauty if you feel that you dont have too much inner beauty

just be happy with what you have
because there are people that are physically deformed but they dont always have self pity

it is not a bad thing to want to look pretty but just know that God isnt looking at how cute you are but he is lookin at ur heart
