She can be your best friend or your worst enemy. She can highlight your beauty and help build up your self confidence, or she can tear you down and make you hate who you are and what you see. She is a bomb set to self-destruct deep within your soul and your inner strength is the bomb squad. Everyday is a new struggle for you. She whispers in your ear, “You aren’t good enough…” She tells you everything that people hate about you, why you should hate yourself too. Today she maliciously tells you, “You aren’t perfect. You are worthless.” You can’t help but think of yesterday, when she told you how beautiful you were, she told you how incredible you were. You were kind and caring, everything that a good person should be. This battle has become an eternal bipolar struggle.
