I'm sure that most, if not all of us have hated our appearance at one point or another. Well, maybe not hate but disliked our appearance. Growing up we're told we need to be skinny, we need to look pretty, we need to be feminine, we need to do this and that, but what about what we wanted?

Let's get one thing straight, college is no joke. I'm only getting to the end of my first semester in college and I've already been feeling the pressure and the stress (most of which I'm putting onto myself). At college I have to figure things out on my own, and it's nerve-wracking.
Ever feel like nobody can relate to you? Like you're alone in this world? Like nothing you do matters? Feel as if the whole world hates you? And makes everything harder specifically for you? If so... you're not alone.
