    I feel like nice looking people get more out of

    life and have a better life. I've never been a good looking woman and I'm overweight. A woman looking at me dismisses me as no threat. A man looking at me dismisses me as something not worth his time. I always have to work twice as hard as my pretty coworkers to be listened to...

    I'm Not Beautiful

    I've been called beautiful recently. To be honest i really dont see it. I can look through the pictures taken of me by friends and family and point out the flaws i see. I cant stand to look at pictures of me most of the time. I only like keeping the ones i think look okay...

    I dont. Just wanted to say

    that i believe beauty is a state of mind, and people will like you if you like yourself. I say this because for the longest time i thought i was ugly and nobody liked me. That was all my life til i was 17. When i turned 18 i thought i would change things up, not for anyone but...

    for a young women, but every second of the day I feel absolutely repulsive. I'm constantly comparing myself to other girls I see, and always wishing it were different. I feel like guys are automatically turned off by me, and always look at my friends. I know this is pathetic...

    I think everyone finds themselves unattractive

    at some point in their life. Sometimes I feel like many people wait their whole lives just for someone to convince them otherwise.

    I Am Ugly

    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...

    I have spent my entire life feeling ugly. To the point that I don't even question it any more. From my parents telling me I would have to work harder than everyone else because I wasn't pretty like other girls, to my sister going through a ten year long stage where it was her...
