All of my life I have been told to act, dress and speak a certain way and that if I didn't act that way I was dirty or nasty. I'm sick of always being criticised if I am not "perfect". I wish I could find a way to be myself because on the outside I am sweet but on the inside I feel weak and depressed.
I recently started cutting myself to cope with these emotions. I just wish I had a friend who understood but I feel like I am surrounded by selfish and ignorant people. It has been especially hard because I just started going to a new school. Maybe it will get better if I talk to a therapist or something.
