What I Wish I Knew In High School About My Skin


High School….how I loved you and how I hated you. Everyone was awkwardly growing into their own skin while dealing with school work, friend drama, heightened emotions, and for a lot of us, bad skin.

I sewed my vivid ideas and sweetest of dreams together in it because I knew the lions mouth was closing and I didn't want to believe the lie that we are all alone. I didn't want to believe the lie that we die frightened.
