Today our daughter starts her Junior year in high school. I loved school...more for the social aspect, but school days also bring back memories of not feeling pretty or good enough, too. I wish I had the confidence I have now back then...to not let other people's comments affect me...to just shake it off. I had always been overweight, but when I look back at pictures of my high school years, I think...I was not THAT overweight! Certainly there were others who were even more so, so why did I take those comments to heart? It's taken me all these years to put that behind me and feel good about myself now.
