Whether it is at home, school, or any other social gathering, I have always been pointed out for a certain body part ever since i was 9-10 years old

Overtime, without realizing it started affecting my relationship with myself and others. I felt disconnected, insecure, underconfident and lonely. It kept increasing and affecting my mental health more and more with time
