Meniria

But her voice echoed in the empty room, and she realized she was not angry at Endlie, Asdom, or even Imandr. She was angry at herself.

Throughout Midnight, my Main Character, Meniria, is discontented with herself. She is an elf on Earth, so she can never be normal. But when she is taken back to her own homeland, and deals with all the tragedies and climaxes that occur there, she does not forget her inner turmoil. She struggles to accept herself for who she is, and even though, through all the wars and strife that occurs, she doesn't forget her hatred of herself. (Until the end, that is)

I based her slightly off myself. Her basic struggles are my basic struggles. I constantly find myself comparing myself to other people, asking myself questions, Am I fat? Am I ugly? Am I weird?

1 Peter 3: 3-4: Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.

What counts is what is inside, not what is outward. Whatever is outward may fade, but the beauty of a "gentle and quiet spirit" is "unfading".

Another verse in 1 Peter (1 Peter 5:7, to be exact):

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

I can be confident in my God, for in him, I am forever secure.
