I watched Oprah today (well, parts) and she had on Jada Pinkett-Smith and the Venus sisters and they were talking about self-image and girls/women. First off, let me say that I would be offended at Jada sitting there telling me crap about how I should feel good about how I look. What does she know about poor self-image? Oh, poor Jada in her size 0 jeans, she's been there you know it! I did feel sad watching these pretty young girls say how gross and ugly they feel. If only someone could pull back the curtain and they could see ten years down the road to what they will be. All the crap you go through when you're a teenager, I just want to shout: "Hang on, just for a little bit, it gets so much better!"
God, what misery I would have been saved if I had a little foresight back when I was a teenager.
