Always in the Way?

I found the picture below while surfing the web, and I found it very moving.  It is, indeed, a PostSecret.
I don't know how many of you have heard of "PostSecret," so I will just explain it to you now in case you do not know about this amazing project.  According to http://www.postsecret.com/, "PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard."  They then publish books with these anonymous secrets in them.  Actually, I have two of them, and they are very interesting to read.  It personally makes me feel less alone because we all have secrets.  We all have something about us that we have kept hidden from everyone else.

As I mentioned earlier, I found the PostSecret pictured above incredibly moving.  I believe it deserves to be recognized and discussed.  I think it is a secret almost all of us can relate to whether we will admit it or not.  I know I, for one, have felt ugly before.  I have felt like I was in the way.  I have felt that something would have been better of without me.  How about you?  Have you ever felt this way?

Awww, I feel for you Jitsy. I have felt the same way in the past - that everyone being nice to me is a joke. I guess you just have to find those genuine people that you know really care about you, on your good days, and your bad days. I know how hard it is to be confident in yourself. I have some major self esteem issues at times. But I'm sure you are a beautiful person. If others don't see your beauty, it is their loss.
