Forever Your Own Essay

1049 words - 5 pages

Before falling asleep, my mother used to tell me that I was the most beautiful girl in the world. For years, I thought that that was true and I would look in the mirror and smile the biggest smile ever. Growing up, I started doubting that because of what others thought about me.

The fire will then cease.

When this happens, you are falling in a black hole, never to return again. Unless you gain the key that can unlock all the doors in your path. When people are insecure, they can no longer continue their normal life without being afraid of attracting...
