I can relate to your story in so many ways. Just like you I was teased at school from first grade all the way to a senior in highschool. I am now 38 yrs old and still have NO self confidence. I was married for 14 years to a man that put me down everyday. I was never pretty enough and was called a fat *** everyday. I feel like my dad had always been ashamed of me because of my weight. Ive never been good enough for him. The pain that still lives in my heart will never go away. I am now married to a wonderful man that tells me how beautiful I am everyday and that he loves me just the way I am but sometimes its hard to accept. I don't believe it so why should he. I try to think different about myself and then I see pictures of myself and Im like OMG I am such a fat ugly cow. I have thyroid problems so that doesnt help with the weight loss at all. I hope one day I will feel good about myself.
Thank you guys sooooooo much for reading my story. You guys just don't know (or maybe you do) how good it feels to be able to talk about my innermost hurtful feelings. This site and the people on here have truly opened my eyes and heart to so much. I feel such a connection to you all and I am so thankful for that. I feel like I can go on and on my bad days I know I dont have to keep it bottled up. I have shared things on here that some of my closest family dont know and I want to keep it that way. You guys "get" me and I love that!
Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your lives and if I can help in ANY way..I will be MORE than happy to!
Peace, Love, Healing, & Blessings
Aweeeeee....I'm in tears over here-THE ONES THAT MATTER, AND THE KIND I WANT TO CRY FOR EVER! I can't thank you enough for trusting and believing n me and for ALLOWING ME, yes i SAID allowing, to be a part of the brighter, better picture!
LOL!! I feel so much better knowing I'm not alone. I want to help as many people feel better by encouraging them. I want to be able to give people hope who don't feel like they have any..because I know what that is like. I feel like I'm getting to know "me" through this site (is that sad?) I mean other things outside of this site have contributed too but I really think God lead me here for so many reasons. I'm with you Anna..I feel like crying tears of joy! yyiiipppeee!!!!!
