    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...

    For some reasons, I feel ugly about myself.

    Sometimes, I would feel like people on the streets are looking at me, judging my looks. Or they might just have felt my conscious about my appearance. My self esteem are always at the lowest all the time, especially when I'm outside, there's so many good looking girls around...

    I look in the mirror

    and point out everything I hate.. People call me fat and everything.. I starve and I put on make-up, trying to be pretty.. Yet nothing works.. Adam tries helping me.. But I still feel so fat and ugly and insecure... *sighs*

    and this just makes me feel worse about myself. I can't remember the last time we've been intimate and I don't even come on to him anymore, maybe it's because I've gained weight so I already have it in my head that it's the reason he doesn't touch me....I might just gross him...
