    To this day, I still feel this way.

    I don't know why I need the validation of being told "you're pretty." Even with being told that, I don't believe it. Maybe it stemmed from never having a boyfriend in school, I don't know. Although I am married, I still feel ugly. When I see myself, I see flaws that needs to be...

    Never Good Enough

     Some people have told me that I'm pretty and it makes me feel special, but I don't believe them. I have always felt like I could be prettier or that I was very ugly. I am African American, however, when I was in school, I was told that I looked like a hispanic girl. People made...

    Ib Or Ob?

    Inner beauty or outer beauty?  Both are what I desire, both are what I'm sorely missing. I'm trying to unlearn how I view myself but after 30+ years it's damn hard to rebuff what I see in the mirror every day and the more I find out about myself, the inner me, the more I...

    I Hide Behind My Smile

    I used to be a very quite person. Not because that was my personality But because I was afraid to be noticed. I'm. Fighting with the inner me. And it won't let me be happy. And I don't think it will ever change

    I never really thought of myself

    as ugly or beautiful until I was about 11. My father, who was always saying funny or witty things my whole life, told me that he thought my nose was too big. I didn't really have any opinion about at the time but felt slightly confused. I gave him a face that conveyed, "Whatever...
