    Beauty As A Commodity

    Because we all are! Capitalist society only creates standards for almost everything. Well, why not? It has to attach a particular value and cost to everything in order to gain profit, and that includes our very notions of what's good, beautiful etc. Ironically, there are lots of...

    I Know I'm Pretty But It's A Pain In The Butt

    I know I have a pretty face and a nice figure but it makes it hard to tell if my boyfriend likes me for me or if he is with me because I'm a 'trophy girlfriend'. I know I'm 10x hotter than his nasty exes and sometimes I think he treats me more like a pet than a person and uses me...

    After many compliments

    and "you should be a model" advices, I think I'm finally convinced that I'm beautiful. Yes, I'm tall and thin. My face looks like Audrey Hepburn. Whatever I wear fits me well. I never follow fashion. I usually put my headphones on my ear, so that I don't hear guys talking. I'm...

    See Yourself Through Gods Eyes

        It is hard for us to tell ourselves we are beautiful. So many times we have hated ourselves, called ourselves ugly and hid behind a mask that everyone thought was reality. We are never good enough in our own eyes because we see ourselves the way no others do. But...

    It's Been a Long Journey.

    It took me years and years. I grew up as the ugly duckling of the family -- constantly criticized for being too tan and too thin (yeah, I know) -- next to a stunning brother.  This bothered me a lot, and led me to believe that I was so unattractive that no one would want...

    I am beautiful and I know it..without a doubt.  As I was growing up, I always had a complex of some sort.  Whether it was about my hair, my weight (I was always too skinny), or even my skin,  I never looked at myself as beautiful.  It actually wasnt until...

    It's true. Of course,

    I think there's beauty in everyone (real beauty comes from the inside, not the out), and if anyone tries to tell you otherwise, don't listen to them.

    Or Just Confused

    I guess I am confused about what "beautiful" means. I think it means something different to men than it does to women, and I don't get where I am by either standard. I settled long ago for "cute" in my own mind, and that's just fine with me. I like this...

    I know I'm gorgeous and i love being that way. I don't need everyone to tell me that for me to know. My fiance's actions towards me and the love he has for me lets me know that i am more than just a pretty face. I'm a Queen and will always be one.
