Crosses posted a topic in Women's ForumIs it wrong to feel ugly? I'm 13,but i feel ugly and not good enough. I don't care what Hollywood says what beauty is. Is it wrong to ask God to make you pretty or change you? I hate the way i look. I hate having short legs,and being short in general (5'1). While girls my age are gettin taller 5'3-5'10,im barely growing each year. I dont think i've grown at all this year height wise. My mom thinks im overreacting and need to get over myself. I know it sounds stupid,but it bothers me a lot when you come from a family ranging from 5'6-6'4. Everyone keeps saying "Oh you're not that tall" or "You where tall when you where younger.What happend?". My dream height would be 5'10. Being tall is one of my life long dreams. If i have to go as far as surgery (yes they have surgery for that. Its a leg lengthening where they cut the bone and insert rods and as the bone heals,it makes more bone,hence,making you taller and have long legs.) through all the extreme pain and cost a lot of money. I may consider saving up. What should i do to feel happy again. I cant even be around girls my age that are taller,because it makes me feel bad. I cant go to the mall without seeing girls my age who are taller. I cant get over it. I cry myself to sleep over it and im embarrassed to tell my mom again because it hurts to talk to her cause she'll just say get over it. And if this ends up in the wrong catagory or wrong tags,sorry....this is my very first forum post online. So idk what im doing :/
Evening Ladies. So, a hot topic issue around these parts lately has been gender roles. Namely, in a Christian relationship what is the place of the guy and what is the place of the girl? What levels of dominance/submission are acceptable? What is ok and what is too far? All great questions, but being that things have gotten a bit *ahem* heated in other threads I've decided that a ladies only discussion is in order. Now, keep in mind I said discussion, not debate. More than going back and forth about who is right or wrong I'd like this discussion to be about opinions, preferences and personal experiences or observations in life. This is a Christian forum and I do want to tackle the idea of gender roles from a Christian perspective but, for this thread, we're gonna kinda just put down our debate sticks and more just kinda explore different views and such. Where everyone is coming from. This is will be a very loose ambly-rambly type topic methinks, but lets do try to keep on topic. I don't think it'll be too hard. One thing I do ask, from just a formatting standpoint, is that if you have questions you want answered or brought up for discussion be put in bold type. Not that I think things here will be *too* busy, but just so we can see. Right-o lets go! Here's some thoughts to get us started. Don't feel like you have to answer all (or any) of these. In regards to gender-roles, how would you define the word dominant? Submissive? Would you describe yourself as naturally more submissive or more dominant relationship? Explain? Assuming a heterosexual relationship, what is the "man's role"? The woman's? In your own words, define egalitarianism and complimentarianism and explain how they are different. If you believe in traditional gender roles, give me an example of something a woman would do that would, in your view, be inappropriate for a woman in accordance to traditional gender roles? What would be inappropriate for the man? Can you see any potential problems with traditional gender roles? What are your thoughts on working mothers? Stay at home dads? What about a relationship where the woman performed most of the traditionally "male" roles while the male performed most of the traditionally "female" roles? Is it ok for a woman to "make the first move" in a Christian relationship? For her to ask him on a date? Initiate the first kiss? As him to be her boyfriend? Propose? Although dominant/submissive may be the wrong words, how do you think people (in general) view "dominant" woman in todays society? Submissive woman? Is this different from how they're viewed in Christian circles? Is a more dominant/submissive woman viewed negativity? Explain? Use examples if you can think of them. How does it make you feel when a Christian man says "The woman's role is to be submissive to her husband"? I'm more asking for feelings or emotions here. Would it concern you to hear a potential boyfriend/husband/love-intrest say that? What would it make you think about him? There! Cut your teeth on those bad boys (or some of them)
So, lately I've noticed that when I PMS now it gets REALLY bad. Like when i'm sad I'm thinking about suicide and cutting which is hard because I NEVER want to end my life, I have so much to live for, I promise I don't want to kill myself, it's just when I'm PMSing that's how sad I get, then I'm happy and normal but SUPER hungry. Then when I laugh, I laugh to the point where I'm sobbing and I start sobbing and can't stop for a good hour. What is wrong with me?!? Is this normal? These mood swings are affecting me really badly. Normally, I'm a pretty even tempered happy teenager. But when im pmsing it's like every emotion is to its EXTREME. should I see my doctor?
