I WILL NOT KILL MYELF

Hey, hey, heyyyy! I’m back at it again, and you are probably tired of me posting and disappearing for a while and coming back and disappearing again, but if I’m completely honest with you, this is how it is going to be until next year May.

I WISH I LOOKED LIKE HER

  IF ONLY I LOOKED LIKE HER….I WOULD LOVE MYSELF BETTER. It is without a doubt that the manifestation and expression of body shame within print media and television has made it increasingly difficult for women to accept themselves. Women are perpetually put under pressure to fit into post feminist body image that is reinforced…

ARE YOU REALLY FINE?

I’m fine, thanks.  But what I really want to say but I am not really saying is that no, I am not fine. I feel :  Like my heart is torn to pieces and I feel defeated I feel rejected  and on the verge of tears I feel worthless and unable At times we put so much…
