Confessions II

II. Sometimes, it just hurts to be alive.

I read an article the other day, about Highly Sensitive People. It was like reading an article about myself.
I then took a test, to see how I qualified on the Highly Sensitive scale... I got a 22 out of 27... so yea.
It explains a lot, I guess. But it's not really reliving.

On an average day, it hurts to be me.
Idk, I just feel like I'm drowning more often than not.

You know how when you're a kid people are always asking you what you want to be when you grow up?
I only ever gave one answer.
I wanted to be happy.

:new:UPDATE III: EVEN MORE PRIZES!!! Now separated into First, Second, and Third Place. Don't forget to love yourself today. And if you happen to write about it, enter here!

UPDATE II: More Prizes!!!! :boogie:

UPDATE: Prizes and dates have been updated! The Love Letter to Yourself Contest is officially open!!! Ready, Set, Write!


Concept: Self love. Write a love letter to yourself. In poem or prose form.
Further interpretation of theme is up to you.

**If I'm confused about how it is a love letter to yourself, I may ask. Be prepared to explain any work you submit.

Rules:
:bulletred: Prose cannot exceed 2000 words, and can be no less than 200.
:bulletred: Poetry can be no longer than 40 lines of text (blank lines/ spaces between stanzas not included). Nothing shorter than haiku.
:bulletred: You must not include anything hateful towards yourself.
:bulletred: You must include the theme, name of contest, and a direct link to this journal in the author's comments of each piece you submit.
:bulletred: Two submissions per person are allowed, either poetry or prose, two of each or one of both.
:bulletred: Only new pieces, written for this contest, are allowed.

**I reserve the right to disqualify anyone from the contest for breaking any of the above rules,
any of dA's rules, or exhibiting what I deem unsavory conduct.


How To Enter:
Send a note to RiseandbeStronger with the title "Love Letter To Yourself Submission"
("LLTY Submission" will also be accepted).
Include a thumb or link to your piece(s) in the body of the note.
You may send multiple submissions in one note, but you may not submit for anyone other than yourself.
I will review the work, and assuming you have followed the rules, will add it to my "LLTY Contest Entries" collection.
