Self-esteem is a confidence and satisfaction in oneself, which should be present in one’s daily life in order for him/her to believe that he/she have the ability do anything. I have to admit I have a very low self esteem and lack of self confidence due to the people around me and my family being a huge part of it.

The only reason I got back into my school was because he persuaded my parents to let me continue my education and let me be who I want to be because its my life to live and not theirs. Ive tried to commit suicide because of the situations caused by my family, so many times but my boyfriend always gave me reasons and potential to live through everything that chooses to destroy me. He’s always there for me no matter what part of the world I’m in. And I admit that I do fear of losing him or seeing another girl in his arms. I feel like one day my insecurity and jealousy would ruin my entire relationship with him. Ive spent two years with him now and I want it to last forever but it feels so good to be true. Im still trying not to let little things get to
