    Poem From The Heart

    Beauty is what's inside Not the skin I tell myself that all the time but yet I don't feel a thing I look in the mirror when I'm alone and my eyes start to cry I see my ugly face and say your ugly i tell myself it's better to admit it then go on and lie. She's so beautiful why I...

    Is It My Looks? Or Is It My Personality?...

    I am a teenage girl and I feel very insecure. I feel that I am not attractive enough and I am always trying so hard to make myself look good. I hate to say this, but I even get jealous of better looking girls. I feel like this because I think that no guys are interested in me...

    Doesn't Matter What They Say

    I don't care how many men tell me I'm attractive, how much weight I gain or lose, how much plastic surgery I have . . . I don't think I will ever be at peace with my appearance. I scrutinize every feature, every extra pound.  Think about how I look in clothes, and how...

    I have been called many things in my life

    but seldom have I heard the word "beautiful" directed at me by anyone that didn't feel obligated to or by people just interested in taking advantage of me. As a teenager, I felt myself to be the walking definition of ugly and awkward; I had a bad case of acne, was rather...

    Not Beautiful

    Most of the time I don't feel beautiful. I think people would refer to me as "cute" instead and to me, that's the kind of word you would use for a baby or a child, not a fully grown adult. My mum always says that people she knows think I'm beautiful but I'm sure she's...

    I've heard too many stories of girls feeling

    depressed because they weren't beautiful. They feel ugly because they keep comparing themselves to photoshopped models in magazines or they keep comparing themselves to thinner girls in there entourage. They dislike themselves because they're worried that they aren't as...

    Naaaah. I know that feeling attractive all

    starts with the self, but certain things people have said & done has lead me to believe otherwise. The reactions I've gotten recently aren't exactly doing it for me. That's cool though. Hopefully there is someone that will.

    I hate the way i look.  i hate that as i get older, i just gain weight.  i hate that my face decides to break out at the worst time.  I hate my nose, and the fact that my lower lip sticks out just a bit more than my top lip.  (from years of pouting i'm sure...
