I hate being compared to other people.
I hate not being good enough.
and most of all, pretty enough.
And no, don't tell me things like "what matters is what's on the inside, not on the outside." , because that's not how society thinks.
Society says that you're only considered pretty when you're tall, sexy, fair-skinned, and basically.... flawless.
And to tell you the truth, I'm not any of those.
And because of the kind of mindset that society introduced to us, I get teased, bullied and looked down upon.
Ever since I was a kid, I've been brought down by a lot of people.
I've been called a horse.
Worse, a rat.
Some people even told me that I looked like a a guy trying to be a girl.
I've been teased because of my lips, prominent front teeth, dark skin and thick brows.
I've been asked why my sisters are both pretty, while I'm not.
All of those left a wound in my heart.
I try to not listen to them.
But honestly, it's really hard not to care, especially if you've been battling with the same old shit for years now.
And because I keep hearing the same stuff all over again, I start to think that everything they say about me is true.
I hate everyone who brings me down.
They all just make me hate myself.
