Hating Myself and it’s Stupid

Stop hating on yourself! Ugh. So much of my life was about being beautiful, being attractive, being pretty. It is hard to believe that I am not now that…

I was never able to explain to my husband that it was okay to not be “hot”, because God knows I was tired of being hot.

Being Attractive can be it’s Own Hell

I was constantly harassed, called, followed, received lewd comments and always the proposition. Are you kidding me? It was always an issue. I’ve even had my share of stalkers, yes.
