Everyone is insecure over something. I’ve yet to find one person who loves everything about them self.
Unfortunately, my insecurities led me to develop anxiety and depression. Being a teenager makes your self appearance stand out more and more. In 8th grade, I noticed how all of my friends had boyfriends and nice clothes and nice houses. And then I began to feel I wasn’t good enough because no guys “liked” me and they liked my friends.
I didn’t have brand name clothes because my parents just couldn’t afford it. And my house is small and not the nicest. So I decided since I wasn’t perfect like my friends seemed to be. I tried everything to be perfect. I began to plan out a diet which soon turned into a dangerous eating disorder. I had cuts all over my arms, stomach, and legs.
I felt hopeless.
My parents seemed as if nothing was wrong…like they were ashamed of me. That really sucked. I would come home and cry every single day and lock myself into my room and beg God to let me die.
But then I found this website. I talked to a HopeCoach and they said the right things. They made me feel like I wasn’t a mistake. They said I was perfect… just for being me. I cried tears of joy and thanked them. God answered my prayers.
If I hadn’t found this website…I would probably have tried to commit suicide.
