"Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." ~Forest Gump


A gnawing hunger bites by stomach, but if I eat I’ll get fat

There is a zit on my face; I guess I have to wear a paper bag over my face.

My hair has a little frizz in it; I guess it’s time to wear a wig.

My eyes aren’t big; I guess I have to get plastic surgery.

I’m not tall, so I guess I have to wear heels the rest of my life.

I’m not flexible; I guess it’s time to take ballet lessons

I’m not a s***; I guess I better count on not being accepted by society.

Why does society expect women to be perfect?

It just makes it harder to be a girl.

Join me if you are against the media making girls everywhere lose their self-esteem.

Together, we can make a difference.
