I have always had a problem with jealousy and insecurity. When I was younger, I was made fun of a lot. I was made fun of for my skin color, my height, my hobbies, my clothes, and my personality in general. When I was about six, I wanted to trade my tan skin for light skin, my dark wavy hair for blonde straight hair, and my blue eyes for brown. I was jealous of my friends who didn't have people making fun of them. I was also very jealous of girls who got attention from boys. I'm not sure why, but boys opinions always mattered a lot to me. I was never the girl who had a lot of boys crushing on her. I wish I could say that things got better in middle school but they didn't. If anything I grew more insecure. At camp this year, I finally let go of my insecurities and my jealousy. I finally learned that I had so much worth in God. I do still have moments when I look in the mirror and wish I could change, or wish my personality was different. I have learned that in God, I am beautiful.
