    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
