Life must be a big world to conquer... but... where is my teddy bear ?

Wow, that's a can of worms for one growing up in a painfully dysfunciotnal family. How about:

You are not to blame.
You are not the parent.
You deserve love.
You deserve security and safety, food and shelter.
You will find deep love.
You will give deep love.
You will find true happiness.
You will have a home and children and a partner and a garden by the sea.
You will find contentment.

You're too young to be "fat." Because I wasn't. I just wasn't skinny. It's so sad how poor body image can start so early. Luckily I didn't suffer any eating disorders (ate all the chocolate ice cream I wanted and rarely bothered with other flavors). But I hate that I didn't feel comfortable in my own skin when I was just a child.

Okay,I've read all the posts and understood them perfectly,but I have no idea about the answer to this one!

I hope you're being soooooo lucky with your intervention because I need your words to get happier every day,I just love the way you make the country I live in be something fresh and so beautiful.

Kisses:)

Yes...you will have your heart broken and yes you will have some heartache. But that´s okay...it will make you stronger and wiser. And it will pass.
You will find the love of your life! Or to be correct...the love of your life will find you and you will recognize what true love really means. ;)

It's good you are not like everyone else - you will celebrate that someday and be happier for it ...

First, that is a GREAT picture!

At 10 years old I'd have assured myself that eventually my teeth would be straightened and my boobs would eventually grow. Kidding, sort of :-)

Interesting question.

It's okay to be the quiet one, the shy one, the tongue-tied one. It's okay to be different. 40 years from now you will realize this and be grateful.

If it feels wrong, then it probably is.

Things will get better. Much, much better.

Lots of bad karma ahead, then a wonderful rainbow. The bad karma will make you appreciate the rainbow even more. Hold on...

Hang in there.

Don't ever worry what people think of you. Be you.

Please save your diaries and schoolbooks. Even if they seem embarrassing for the moment - don't throw them away. Your 37 year old self would love to read them.
