Yeah, looking at it can be an addiction. You could try blocking all those types of sites or just not going on the computer heaps - like limiting your time on the computer so you can;t look it up as much?

Basically I'm never on the computer. Which sounds weird since I'm on TH. But I just use the Internet on my iPhone, which I always have with me. =\ Why I wanna constantly look at girls who are better than me I don't know...but I do

can you not block the sites on your phone?
maybe you should talk to someone and take steps to build up your self-esteem. no one is better than you, believe in yourself!


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Maybe I could but it just freaks me out. I need to see it cause...I dunno why. And you're obviously a really sweet girl but trust me, most people are better than me

Let me tell you, everyone is beautiful in their own way. Other people may be thinner, have better skin, have a talent you do not, but you shine in other ways. You should never compare yourself to other people and feel like they are better than you are, because no-one is.

You're beautiful, and no-one else is like you. Pride yourself on the fact you're you rather than a copy of something you wish you were. Being you is being perfect. Don't let anything make you feel differently to that, because whatever makes you think you're not good enough is wrong.

PM me if you ever want to talk. <3
