Favorite Quote:
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Admit it. There is and always will be girls you compare yourself to. There is always a girl, one girl that makes you see all the flaws in yourself. Every pimple, every piece of flyaway hair, and the way you snort when you laugh. You try and tie yourself down, the real you, to be the clone of this girl. You want her flawless skin, her perfectly straight shiny hair and her amazing laugh that guys swoon at.

Then there’s the other girl. The girl you feel beautiful next to. The girl who probably feels the way you feel about the “perfect” girl. Your imperfections: well there perfect to her. She sees the girl she wants to be, but you’d happily trade yourself for little miss “perfect” any day. She’d take you in a heartbeat. Your flawless skin, your perfectly straight hair and your amazing laugh, that guys swoon at.

Yes, that’s the girl she wants to be. Not herself. Anyone but herself.
