Self-perception

Location

What would I change?

I would change myself.

Oh the things I would change,

My weight, my clothes, my hair.

The list goes on and on.

But why is it the first thing I think of is my appearence?

Why do I look at myself in the mirror and hate what I see?

I could blame it on the media,

On the flawless magazine covers.

But that is not where the true problem lies,

No the problem lies in me.

It is not what I am, but how I see myself.

I must focus on my stregnths, not my weaknesses.

I am intelligent, trustworthy, responsible.

I cannot let these things be hidden by my imperfect body.

What I would change is myself,

Not physically, rather how I look at myself.
