    Yes. ...

    Yes. People tell me all the time that I am pretty. I really dont see it. Somedays I feel like I look damn sexy, but other days I feel as fat as a cow and I only way 114lbs.

    Small Victories

    This is actually a victory story. It is a small victory, but one cannot be choosy. Tonight, I looked in the mirror, and for a brief second, I didn't hate what I saw. It was gone but a moment later, but I am sure it was there. I have no idea what it was even that I saw, and...

    It's Difficult.

    My friends always say that I'm beautiful, that I only notice the undesirable things about myself that nobody else ever would. But I always convince myself somehow that they're only trying to make me feel better about myself. It takes a lot for me to feel pretty, & it doesn't...

    "Looks Like a Man"

    I have what you might call a masculine personality - I'm ambitious, aggressive, loud, brash, confident, adventuresome, sometimes stubborn, always intense, opinionated, ... do you see what I mean? But the fact that I'm a girl always makes this difficult. And it was compounded...

    I Just Don't See It

    I have been told I am beautiful all my life. I have never beleived anyone. I definately do not fit the media's version of beauty. I am overweight now, which really makes me less attractive, but I still get told that I am beautiful. Years ago, my aunt was showing my cousin's...

    What Do You Think?

    I probably think I'm uglier than I really am. Me being realistic rather than pessimistic, ha ha ha ha. In all seriousness, my brother could be my identical twin, except his thinner. He gets girls, he's told he's hott. I figure just my weight adds a bit of unattractiveness to me...

    Insecure Man

    As a boy I grew up a typical life but I always noticed I wasn't completely happy. There was something in my life that I didn't feel was right, my body. Going all the way up to my freshman year in high school I would look in the mirror and be disappointed and thinking to myself...

    Life Is Real And So Am I

    A little story: You see, once upon a time I was a young woman who had a rough childhood, decided to do some about it and heal it. It was work and yet because I took charge of my life and wanted to help myself and the other, all in the universe seemed to help me too. Life was...

    I'm Everything a Man Doesn't Want

    Ugh.

    People always say how beautiful I am and how they wish they had my body, my face, my hair, etc. But I hate myself. I feel ugly even when I'm constantly reassured that I'm not. I am constantly comparing myself to other people and feel like I'm coming up short. Every time I try to...

    Conflicted

    The thing is: my face is almost flawless. Green eyes, a normal nose, red lips, oval face... Yet I'm not pretty. All the parts of my face are okay individually, but together they look silly and messy and my face has zero personality. I feel like a bad painting: the anatomy's okay...

    Never Felt Pretty...

    I have never felt pretty or attractive. Although I have had boyfriends and they have told me I am pretty, I have never felt it. My boyfriend always tells me that I am very beautiful and some days I feel slightly pretty, but on most days I look and the mirror and see the ugliness...

    So... I commented a video on youtube, saying that the song totally told the story of my feelings for my crush. Then some douche bag comes and says "the difference between you and the singer is she's hot and you're not!" Um. Firstly, I didn't compare she and I...

    But How Can It Be True?

    This is probably the one thing I struggle with the most in my life. I always feel absolutely hideous. I feel fat, I feel like my face and my nose are oddly shaped. I just never look in the mirror and say "You look beautiful today." I see pretty people all the time, and...

    Ugly Victories

    One thing that makes me feel uglier than I am is when I experience ugly victory; because such victories generally feel like **** but the right thing was done, ergo a JUST victory is NOT always pretty:
