Where wild minds come to rest

My main problem is that I am not 100% confident in myself. Some moments I feel okay- but many others I do not feel confident. I pick myself apart and constantly see every flaw. It's getting really old. When I MD, its a way to reassure myself and feel confident. I wish that I could quit looking in the mirror obsessively. I wish I would quit comparing myself to others. It's like I know that I am being too hard on myself and I don't have much room to complain. But I still obsess over beauty.

I wish that I could quit putting so much emphasis on beauty. But it is really hard when so many women are valued by their looks and harshly judged. I don't allow myself to look at magazines anymore unless its SELF magazine or something like that. This obsessiveness is anything but constructive and sometimes time consuming.

My worst problem with myself though is my smile. I had braces so its not like I have crooked teeth, but I still don't like to smile. When I do, I hate how my face looks. I drive people nuts when I don't want to smile in a picture. I just don't know what to do with myself and this ridiculous problem.


Of course though- I also MD just to escape and sometimes even work out my problems. Funny enough, it gives me a calm atmosphere to think in.

hey, you are just worried about your present. Look at you, day by day your teeth will align thyself in proper shape and once that braces will be off, your smile will be good again. i was 5, when in an accident I lost 6 front teeth and a great smile due to my parents ignorance. But I do smile, bcz I believe, when you accept situation and people as they are, they just fed away. :)

I also have a problem with my smile. I had an accident when I was 3 so as I grow older, there was a visible gap between my 2 front teeth. I had to get braces to align my teeth and close the gap. Now, this is not much of a problem anymore, but I still don't like to smile when I take pictures because smiling makes my eyes look smaller and my face look puffier.
