Loving the Skin You're In

With the academy awards here, no doubt the focus turns to who looks like what, who is wearing what and so on. The question is DO WE REALLY CARE??? Personally, I mean if you are livin' large as a big celeb, you're probably thinking you're really cool - and I am happy for you. But the reality is, you don't have to be famous to love the skin you are in.

Check Yourself

Take a minute. Look up and down and all around. What do you notice the most about your skin? Is it the color, the texture or the clothes covering it? Fact time. Did you know that your skin is your body's biggest organ (and I don't mean the music-making kind.) Okay it is pretty gross, but think about it. Check out all the ways we use our skin. We dress it, put make-up on it, clean it, spray it...you get the picture.

Skin Abuse?

We also bake our skin in the sun, put tobacco and other chemicals into it, pierce it and color it permanently (tattoo me, tattoo you?) Whazzup with that? Your heart is an organ, but would you tattoo Mom on it if you could? No.

What's your Color?

The crazy thing is that sometimes we let the color of someone's skin change how we look at him or her and how we feel about them. Admit it, you've done it before. Fact time, 99 per cent of us humanoids have the same DNA, it is only that 1 per cent that makes us who we are, brown, black, white or yellow. So we are more alike than different. Remember that.

The Catwalk

By now you're thinking, is she postal? What is she talkin' about? Well baby get this: The world is your stage. Celebs may have their fifteen minutes of fame, but you are a star 24/7.

    last friday, i was home alone, my dad went to am AA meting and chiz, so i was alone for a couple og hours, i mean yeah i'm depressed, i cut, i have suicidal thoughts daily.......it's hard hurting inside..and just to see everyone pass you by like you're nothing, people judging you without knowing you. i also have social anxiety, and it really bothers me at school, so i try to walk fast in the halls, and i'm tense a lot. people criticize me once in a while.... ive been through some stuff, i've seen my mom abused infront of me thousand of times..........it's just hard...life. i'm scared to deal with it. so i made a noose, tried to attempt. long story short, my friend called the police, i got sent to the ER......my dad doesn't trust me alone for a mere 3 seconds, cause he thinks as soon as he turns his back i'll cut myself, or hang myself

    So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?  Ello and I thinks he likes you and feels your the close enough friend what he can joke around with. He doesnt want to offend you or upset you and that shows he cares about your feelings. Me advises is take your time and see how your friendship develops.  If it feeels natural to ask him does he like you then ask him and theres no rush :) Good luck :love
