    I have been called ugly

    so many times in my lifetime that I believe it. I always think that if I was pretty people would treat me better.

    Nope...

    ...I am not pretty at all. There is so much wrong with me. It's hard to have any confidence. My face is always dry, no matter how much moisturizer I put on. My hair is thinning on the sides. I have hirsutism, which is the main reason I hate myself. It's when a girl's body is...

    I hate when people tell me

    that I'm too pretty and that I was never once ugly. Are you kidding me??? I suffer from anorexia. I lost more than thirty pounds over the years, and it still continues to happen. So what I'm apparently too pretty to cut? Guess what? Self harm knows no age, no appearance, or...

    I Am the Ugliest Person You Will Ever Meet.

    I can truly say I am the ugliest person in the whole world. I can say that cuz I have no friends, no boy/girlfriends, I am all alone and I believe it is because of the way I look.  I wish it wasn't so but it is. I sometimes feel so ugly I literally stay in my hot apartment...

    Another Sob Story

    I have never been kissed. No boy has ever liked me. I've never been asked out. I don't get a second glance, except when someone wants to comment on my height (near 6'). People always tell me 'oh, when I saw you coming, I thought you were a guy.' Clothes can never fit me right...
