It can be pretty da.mn infuriating, but to change this standard is going to be very hard. What I don't understand is that while men will usually just use their fists or words, women will grab the nearest blunt or sharp object to hurt somebody with - and they're only called mentally unstable!
That helpline that man called needs to be shut down; what would they do if a teenage boy called, being abused by his mother or another female family member? Would they turn him away too?
I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!
You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
