    It's hard when the people around you are

    so stunning and you're the one that's left to feel like crap. Nobody likes to pay attention to me because my sister and my best friend are gorgeous. They really make me feel bad about myself. My top lip is my biggest insecurity because I often get the question "what's wrong with...

    I Know I Am Ugly

    I suffer from BDD and Asperger's and hate how I look. I consider myself a freak of nature. I don't think my parents have good genes. I don't even want to leave my home some times I feel so ugly. My husband is very handsome and loves me and tells me I look great but I still feel...

    When Will "they" Call Me Beautiful?. . .

    I have gone throughout my entire life feeling like I don't belong because I was never able to achieve the beauty that everyone taunted me for not having. Sure I wasn't the most beautiful thing walking, but I wasn't ugly. Yeah I believed that back then but if you were to ask me if...

    Far From....

    I am not pretty at all. I am not beautiful, I am not really anything more than an ugly waste of skin, that shouldn't even be around anymore. I hate getting my picture done, I hate going on webcam, because I just feel totally ******* ugly, and fat, and far from pretty....

    Picture This.

    picture a 6 grader getting up the courage to go tell the boy she's been admiring that she's in love with him. Now watch him reply with a non-hesitated "f*** no." now picture this girl, a little bigger, 8th grade going to a party and having 4 girls come up to her as she...

    Never Have Been

    It sucks. I wish I could hide away and never been seen. It was all well and good to be plain when people thought I was 10 years younger, but now I look like I'm in my thirties... I would never have thought myself vain, but i can't help thinking it were pretty, I wouldn't be...

    I hate when people use the excuse

    that I'm too pretty for something... Your too pretty to self harm. Your too pretty to get your heart broken.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Had to get

    that out of my system. I have a big nose. As a teenage girl, this is problematic because what's "pretty" are small little button noses. I literally want to cry when I see people with little doll faces because I just feel like my face is so manly :/ My nose is both big and...

    I have been unattractive all my life

    and not for lack of trying. No hairstyle, makeup, change of clothes, or body shape has ever made a difference. I guess my genetics just didn't set me up to be one of the "beautiful people".

    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...
