    Even when people compliment me I don't feel

    anything. I've always been shy and quiet just so nobody will look at me. I'm always awkward around the guys I like because I don't want them looking at me cause I'm not good enough for them. It's not anything a compliment from people can change it's something I have to start to...

    Everyone finds someone to be unattractive.

    But other people's opinions should never matter. Do whatever it takes to make yourself feel confident and content with yourself. At the end of the day, being beautiful inside is what really matters.

    don't know how to live a normal life anymore. From the moment I wake up to the moment I go to sleep all I think about is my flaws. It's been like this for 3 years now and it keeps getting worse, some days even leaving my bed is a struggle and leaving the house is just impossible...

    This experience is probably only used by

    teenagers who are going through a tough time. I was one of you guys, I'm still a teenager who goes through a lot of ****, but believe me one thing: No matter how ugly you feel, you are beautiful if you're being yourself. That sounds so overused and stupid, but it's not. Please...

    If you feel ugly or hate the way you look then

    look take a good look in the mirror! Still feel ugly? Then get a better mirror! Still feel ugly? Look closer. Then look into your eyes. You may see depression, pain, fear, anger, stress. Do you see the light? That is your beauty and strength. The light shows you are a beautiful...

    I have always had a lot of insecurities.

    I never felt good/smart/beautiful enough. But I was getting better since the beginning of school year 2014/15. I started feeling more confident and regular-looking. I never felt beautiful, because I don't have the features for that, but I actually started appreciating my eyes...

    Seriously, you guys should be fortunate

    that you're even alive right now. Being insecure sometimes is perfectly okay but if you're allowing yourself to be consumed by insecurity you really need to re evaluate your life. Clearly there's some trauma or event that triggered this kind of belief system. I suggest all of...

    constantly feel ugly out of place fat.

    stop myself from looking in the mirror and wanting to cry cause I'm nothing that anyone would ever want. after awhile it just feels natural from all your hatred and mean words.

    May I Die With Honour...or Live to See Better Days

    To mention an institution as horrific and seditious with regards to the life of a child is a task that goes against my better judgment. Positive efficacious existence is inundated by a tide of anguish, thrust upon those so innocent as to not recognize the in-evident fate about to...
