THAT ONE GIRL

there's always that one girl
you stare at her from across the room

"she's so perfect"

her hair is always flawlessly curled
her clothes always so cute and stylish

"why can't I be like her"

the way she ruffles her hair and somehow
it never gets tangled or frizzy like yours

"sigh"

she's never awkward
she's never clumsy

"how does she do it"

you see her selfies on instagram
she's model material

"and I can't even take one decent selfie"

you think she is the definition of perfection


let me tell you something though

there's someone you know
believe it or not
that thinks this way
about you

  15. GIRLLLLL, YAS!!! Idk, it always seems like other people have their lives together from their fashion to their schedule, but once you get to know them, you realize that these superhuman beings are just as human and as struggling as you are, and maybe it's just me, but it makes you like them better for it. (-: Gorgeous post, Aaliyah <3

  19. Wow . . . that made me tear up. ;) I go through moods where I feel really ugly and unwanted . . . this is so true though! Don't you wish sometimes people would tell each other how pretty they look? I think our world would be a bit happier . . .
