  1. Hi.
    I can relate to your sentiments as i went to an all girls school from when i was six all the way to high school and i can assure you that competition is what mostly defined us. The girls with long hair and fair skin were always considered the pretty ones and the likes of me, dark, short hair, let’s just say i had my brains working for me. Fast forward to many years later, i am now married to a wonderful guy with three beautiful children. I don’t know if this is sad but my husband has worked so hard to make me feel pretty and feminine and slowly i have learnt to look at myself in the mirror and appreciate that girl staring back. I have vowed to take my daughter to mixed schools throughout as i don’t want her to go through what i had to endure. Hopefully her problems in life will not be what she naturally has or lacks.

    Please continue writing and inspiring us ghost readers 🙂

  2. Thanks Lissa. I think sometimes we need to see ourselves as others see us before we can recognise our own beauty. That’s not sad, it’s human, and I’m glad you found a good man to help you see yourself as you really are 🙂
