    I Wish I Were Pretty

    Someone told me once I was cute as a child. Then they added, matter-of-factly, 'but you're not pretty now'. Looks have always been an issue for me. Not that I'm hideous, realistically speaking, (though I sometimes think I am!) but it hurts to always be the one ignored when...

    I don't feel fat and ugly,

    I know that I am but what makes it bad is how people treat someone like me. But I am doing my best to be in shape because being fat can cause health problems in the future, but i can never change the fact that I am still ugly lol

    Self Esteem

    Family and strangers tell me I'm pretty. But when people my age make side remarks saying I'm ugly my low confidence in myself just gets lower. It hurts so bad I just feel forced to put a smile on my face everyday but on the inside I'm not myself anymore.

    I've always been so insecure about my looks.

    And I finally fell in love with a man that made me feel beautiful, until he left me and told me that he wasn't happy with me. I now feel that I will not find anybody that thinks I am beautiful enough to love. I think about it everyday and it hurts badly.

    Bad genes you might say. I've never been a pretty girl not because I have a bad hairstyle or makeup. My bone structure is awfully manly and if I had a short hairstyle and I was wearing a suit you would point fingers at me saying 'who's that ugly boy?'. I'm pretty used to my...

    that everyone is beautiful, even if not in the way that the world perceives beauty. But, I guess it comes down to it that I really am just an ugly guy who's not ready to accept his ugliness :(
