    I Get Jealous Of Other Women....

    Because I work with children, I never look my best, I wear no make up and my hair is always tied up in a high ponytail. I feel jealous when I see other women at my work who are older then me. Their hair always looks lovely and they have pretty faces, wear lovely clothes and look...

    I Really Wish I Was

    I wish i could feel what its like to be pretty or beautiful.   Everyday I feel like i am less, like i am separated off onto the side. I look at those around me and wonder why I can't just be more like them.  I feel like a bad person when i say i would like to be...

    I have a lot of insecurities.

    I hide them from my boyfriend. I hide them from my family. I hide them from the world. There's something so scary about admitting that you don't think you're good enough. That you think the world did this to you, that it MADE you ugly. I look at myself and wonder how...

    It's not that I think

    that I'm really ugly or anything, but I think I'm pretty average like a scale from 1 to 10 I would be a 5. There's nothing that really makes me stand out for anyone to notice me.

    My Mentality

    It's one thing to think you're not pretty enough just randomly out of the blue, but it's a totally different thing to think it because that's what you've felt most of your life. My parents weren't  ones to compliment me, let's just say that. As a kid, I felt there was constantly...

    Daisies

    Ever since I was younger, I've known that I didn't look as good as the people around me. There is always someone prettier with a whiter smile or a more photo-genic face and I just never measured up with my thick nose 5-head. In other words, in a sea of roses, I was a dandelion...

    My Prettifulness

    I have an odd relationship with my appearance. It's not horrifying to look at in a mirror, and I had always tended to be relaxed about not wearing makeup, and not minding too much about clothes. Every door and window is open and I could fly through life unburdened by it if it...

    Thanks, Media-brainwashing

    I'm not shallow. I don't buy into the notion that you have to look a certain way to be attractive. I know that beauty is subjective, relative, and all in the eye of the beholder. But I am only human, and I still get trapped beneath the "pretty" bus once in a while. I was watching...

    I hate myself most of the time because I don't feel pretty. I don't love myself because of it. When other people tell me i'm beautiful, it makes me feel good, but I don't believe them. I wish I thought I was pretty.

    I keep quiet about it because might seem like I'm fishing for compliments. Maybe a little insecurity keeps me from being conceited. What do you do to feel pretty?

    I'm Not

    This is what I look like on a daily basis- no makeup, hair pulled back in pigtails, old t-shirt on, geek glasses. I wish I was one of those girls who can wake up and look like they could do a Victoria's Secret photo shoot.

    Every time I look in the mirror, rather than focusing on my good features, my eyes slide over to the cluster of zits by my chin or to the freckles sprinkled on my nose. I can never stop and think, "Oh, my eyes are actually quite nice." or "My skin looks really good today!" or...
