And so it is...

I know it must frustrate you
to hear me doubt the good things
you see in me, but low self esteem
is like an incurable disease; it’s
yet another sickness I live with
and fight against and there are
bad days and there are better ones,
but never is there a day when
the whispering voice falls silent
and simply lets me be. You look
at me like I’m the most beautiful
thing you can imagine and I have
to fight with myself not to shrink
back and hide because if you’re
looking at me that intently then
you must be seeing the droopy eye
lid leftover from my eye surgeries
or the fat under my chin from the
way my jawbone sits further back
than it used to or how awful I look
with my hair pulled back and nothing
to hide behind. These are just some
of the demons I have fought and
I need you to know that I am still
fighting them so please don’t
think less of me for my weakness
and please don’t think it’s you
I doubt (it’s me - it’s always me).
I want to see myself the way you
see me, and sometimes I really do.
Please don’t ever stop thinking I’m
beautiful, even if I still try to hide
from the weight of the word. I’ll get
stronger, I promise.

WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

This little fish lives deeeeeeeeeep down in the ocean and spits that little glob of bio luminescent liquid to momentarily distract predators and escape being eaten

It’s a wizard
