    My sister was telling me yesterday how she gets

    annoyed when boys call her pretty and try to get at her. She says it happens too often, and it's just annoying. I don't understand why tho. I'd love that kind of attention. People always call her pretty. I don't hear it as often as her. I wish i was like that. I wish i was as...

    Everywhere I turn people say I'm ugly.

    People think that they're hurting me when they say that. I've been hearing the same thing for the last 41 years. I'm immune to it. And besides that I'm not trying to mate with any of these ratchet hoes around here anyway. I'm not here to impress anybody. If they don't like the...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Idk when I last felt pretty

    but I know I feel ugly every day. My face is always oily my body has lumps. I'm not to girly but I'm trying to be so maybe I can be prettier. Hate my reflection. I avoid mirrors. I just never feel good about myself. I'm just sick of being ugly.

    I wish I looked like I did in the mirror

    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.

    Why is it I can find something attractive in

    nearly everyone I know, but absolutely nothing in myself? Even if I get asked out, or told I'm pretty, I don't believe it one bit. I am Ugly!

    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...

    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...

    When I was younger, I was body shamed by a girl.

    Ironically a few weeks before she made fun of me I was the only one in class who didn't laugh at her for puking, but she still decided to bully me. It was one of the first times I wore short shorts and she hurt me badly. It has been years and she wears short shorts now but I don...

    Since I remember, I have always felt ugly.

    My family would always say how beautiful my cousins were but would never say this about me. I have cellulite despite of being naturally skinny and I have freckles, so I was made fun of being ugly several times. Now I have a boyfriend, he tells me he loves me and that I'm...
