    Other People Don't Help

    This happened to me the other day. It was me and my two cousins out for a nice dinner at a decently fancy restaurant. This old woman approached us, looking as if she owned the whole world. She approached my younger cousin, Jena, and agreed to compliment her on her looks. She...

    Naeun goemul... Don't.

    Just don't - I am so many things, but this...? I am curves and swaying, hills and valleys, and jiggling, odd shaped lumps. I am hazels, browns, peaches and pinks - and deep purples and rich reds. I am long days and lonely nights - I am unreachable, unlovable, untouchable...

    I hate it when I read a post on Tumblr

    or Facebook about beauty: Everyone is beautiful", "You are beautiful no matter what people say", "We are all beautiful". People who write these stuff think they'll build the self esteem of an unattractive person, and I think they are wrong, because no matter how you define...

    I Know

    I'm never going to be beautiful. I've accepted it and I'm content with that.

    Do you feel like your life would be

    so much better if you were one of the pretty people. I think I would honestly get more noticed by people and would like me more just because I was beautiful. I sucks I always thought I would just be the ugly duckling and be beautiful at one point. sigh

    However, I have cute features,

    I'm fit and toned and I spend time on good nutrition and grooming. I know I'm not going to turn heads but those who take the time, see the sparkle I my eye, feel the vitality of my spirit and the warmth of my optimism. I love who I am.

    Think about the person you are today,

    flaws and all. Think about the things you wish you could change. Maybe your ears are "too big" or your teeth are crooked. But maybe your big ears make it easier to hear. And maybe your not-so-straight teeth make it easier to eat tough foods. My point is, no matter how many...

    I think that's why I don't have many friends.

    ..this generation is the age of judgemental people. I just wanna meet a real perso, someone who likes me for me and just not my looks. I rarely have any guy friends and no boys really talk to me so it always makes me wonder if there's something wrong with me..

    I Don't Feel It.

    A large part of being beautiful comes from within yourself. That part of me has been bound and gagged. She's still in there, somewhere, I just can't find and free her.

    I'm sick of people saying

    that everyone is beautiful. It's bullshit. I get the sentiment behind it - everyone is valuable, deserves to be loved, etc., but the fact that they choose to express that through a word that means physically attractive really annoys me. Just like not everyone is tall, and not...

    If Only You Could See Inside Of Me....

    The outer shell is just a glimpse of me. I know that I could never be called beautiful in the classical sense. I am not (nor probably ever will be) anything smaller than a 12; for every good hair day, I have a dozen bad ones; I tend to look on in silence while others are...

    A Burden of Life

    I am not beautiful. I will never be beautiful. I've read some of the stories in this group and a lot of the comments add that beauty comes from within. This is true. However, there is also outer beauty. Just as real and just as important. The layer everyone first meets and judges...

    Mediocre At Best.

    my mom tells me i'm beautiful and so does my father, but i always felt that they only said it because that's what they're supposed to say. i just don't see it or believe it. i think i'm decent looking, rather plain looking but beautiful i am not.

    Outer Beauty Is A Business That's All

    Why do we feel inadequate?  Our fears about our appearance are mass marketed and fueled by the media and cosmetics industry.  We measure ourselves against these advertisements and celebrities who are paid by the multibillion dollar cosmetics and fashion industries...

    Nope, I am not beautiful. I feel like I am ugly on the inside and out. I guess being told that I am, didn't help either. I guess some people are not meant to be beautiful I am one of those People

    It's just the truth. And I don't say

    that to depreciate myself, or ask for attention, or be mean to myself. I'm just honest. This fact doesn't take away from who I am, or how I see myself in the mirror. I know who I am, and the people who matter do too and chances are, they don't really care that I don't wear any...
