Will I ever be good enough.

Postby Paeonia » Wed Jun 05, 2019 8:01 pm

I used to post here quite a lot and then I stopped. I guess I felt like I didn’t need to anymore, like I had got what I needed from it and moved on. It kills me to come back because it means I’m not in a very good place.

I don’t really have anyone to talk to about my issues because I have hid them from everyone. It’s not that I’m ashamed. I’m just too embarrassed to tell people I have BDD because I don’t want to see the look on their faces when I explain what it is. I can’t bare the thought of them laughing inwardly as I tell them because I know what they will be thinking - she’s just ugly!!!!
I used to have a friend who understood, I could tell him anything and he was always there. But things changed and now I’m trying my best to manage on my own. I think that’s what brought me back here, an open space I can just let it all out.

I have had body image issues for as long as I can remember. The first time I posted here I was 19, I was so young and had all my life ahead of me. Now looking back I feel like I have wasted so many years focusing on why I’m not good enough because of my appearance. I will be 28 this year and almost ten years later the same things that bothered me then bother me now. It’s like I know I’m holding myself back but the reflection I see in the mirror tells me I’m not good enough!

Is it possible to convince yourself you are good enough?

I used to have body issues, but I finally got to where I just didn't care anymore. I started to be okay with myself. And then.. I was good enough.

I mean, I'm not fond of how I look, but I don't let it hold me back.

Tell someone you love them today, because Life is short. But scream it at them in Klingon, because Life is also terrifying and confusing.
