I Feel Ugly

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 239 People

    Thanks to my non-hodgkins lymphoma I have a big

    lump on my neck. And today, not for the first time, a shopkeeper tried to get rid of me as quickly as she could, thinking I might be contagious. That's the good thing about cancer, it's not contagious. I went to church with my boyfriend for the first time last week, and one...

    (This post is going to sound arrogant

    and narcissistic, sorry in advance.) I honestly think I have BDD. People tell me I'm pretty all the time and that I should model (no lie whenever I meet someone new that's usually the first thing they say). I still feel so inadequate regardless of what many people say. I don't...

    All it takes is one person to call you ugly

    and then everyone else who said you're hot and attractive and sexy doesn't feel like they're being honest. For me it's a bit of both. Some call me ugly, some call me good looking. Honestly I don't think I'm good looking. So I tend to believe I'm ugly more than I'm good looking...

    I always have felt hideous!

    I always feel like I am the worst looking person in the planet. I honestly feel that way. Every time I look in the mirror, I fear that it will crack due to my ugly facial features. It saddens me because I feel as though my ugly appearance has made it impossible for me to find a...

    Guys often show interest in me.

    They flirt and eventually tell me I'm pretty or whatever, but it doesn't feel genuine. I feel like most men will flirt with anyone with a vagina. For once, I just want to be told I'm beautiful by someone who actually truly means it. I feel insecure about so many things, and I...

    As the title suggests,

    I feel ugly. I feel like I'm not good enough for my boyfriend because of it.

    Not Always

    Most of the time, I like how I look. I can look in the mirror and think, damn, I look good today. But there are times when I think that I look too much like a certain relative who I really don't like. Facial expressions or certain features that remind me of that person, and I...

    I am dating a guy who is quite handsome

    and who gets a lot of attention from women. I am average looking and I sometimes feel like I am not pretty enough to be with him. I was never that pretty girl that every guy wanted to date or the girl who got attention but my boyfriend is the complete opposite of me. Women have...

    I don't think i look very good,

    i don't think any one else does either, i'm 16 and i still haven't had a relationship, i think my personality is wonderful, but i guess that isn't enough for some people, and i still haven't had my first kiss yet... wondering if i ever will.

    I think I don't fit in.

    I don't party or whatsoever because I feel it's not for me. I even don't attend our senior's night. But now when I'm feeling low I just bear in my mind that someday I'm gonna be a better person than I am now. Like Christina Aguilera's song - I am beautiful no matter what they...

    I Feel Fugly :(

    Usually I have a good amount of confidence with how I look but lately I've been feeling so incredibly ugly. Mostly because I've been gaining weight. Then I see all the other little flaws. My face is too round, my teeth aren't white enough, I have dark circles under my eyes, and I...

    Why.

    No matter what I do, how much makeup or clothes I buy, I always feel repulsive. Especially when I'm out with my best friend. I can forget about it sometimes, but its always lurking in the back of my mind... I probably sound paranoid, but I wouldn't be asking people online...

    I don't like buying clothes

    or putting any effort into my appearance because its such a let down when the end result of it all still makes me look ugly. I don't even have to look in the mirror anymore, its just a feeling of ugliness.

    I Hate The Way I Look And Have For Most Of My Life....

    I think half the problem is that I look so stupidly young for my age. I am 26 but often get mistaken for 17/18. People say I should be thankful for this but what they forget is that I get treated with less respect and 17 is a child and not an adult. I have a big nose, thin lips...

    I took a picture recently

    and I thought I looked really pretty so I showed it too my mom and she immediately said, 'you look like one of those bush baby's' and she began laughing so hard. This is why I feel ugly. She always has something to say about my face or body.

    Just One Little Word

    Hi, I was just turning thirteen last year when this happened. It scarred me for months and months. Stupid really, considering it was just one word. My friends and I had just sat down after a thrilling game of "steal-the-bag-and-hide-it". As you can tell, we were very original...

    wants. I want to finally wear shorts and feel hot; not embarrassed... I need to lose 5 - 10 kg to be at a "normal" weight. I'm 17, 5'6 (short), okayish skin, blue eyes, brown hair (too long, but afraid to have it cut short cause of my big head), sort of hairy... Who else here...
