    Shyness Confused For Conceit

    I've always been very shy. Painfully shy actually. I mostly want to go unnoticed and I even walk with my head down, but it doesn't stop people from staring or doing double takes. It's hard for people to not notice me in the first place since I'm tall and very thin. I have a few...

    I Want Respect

    I don't consider myself beautiful nor ugly, i don't for anyone on this earth. Its society which chooses, which is sad. Apparently I'm considered beautiful, which everyone thinks is amazing, its not for everyone. In Middle school i was what society considered ugly, but then i...

    How Beauty Is A Lie

    I feel like my opinion on beauty is one not shared by many others. Everyone I know seems to be after this idea that being beautiful means you're life becomes better, that you're more successful and happier. It took me a long time to finally accept that the way I look is...

    I Don't Hate Being Beautiful, I Hate Being Alone.

    I am told repeatedly that I am very beautiful by various people. It's just something that simply "is" for me. However, it has come at a price. I am so very lonely. I am recently divorced and have found myself thrust into the world of singlehood for the first time in 14 years. Men...

    Beauty Is Not 100% Positive

    I was researching the downside of being beautiful and stumbled across this website. I would like to congratulate this initiative! It’s a kind of a taboo subject, as beauty is perceived as something 100% positive. Well... it’s not. I have to say that I was shocked with some...

    Not Always All It'S Cracked Up To Be

    When I was growing up girls constantly spoke

    badly of me even when they didn't know me, I would hear them say "she's not even pretty, she has _______" and pick out some flaw like a pimple or chipped nail polish or food in my teeth and broadcast it to everyone in hearing distance. I grew up feeling like I was under a...

    Ambiguous About My Beauty

    I feel so much ambiguity. When I dress nice and put light makeup on, I get stared at and hit on to the point of discomfort. So 85% of the time I dress down, wear no makeup and mix in with the crowd. But feeling such a split is so strange to me. On one hand I love...

    It's A Golden Cage That You Can't Get Out Of

    I never considered myself particularly attractive, and somehow I still don't. However, people always thought I was beautiful. It wasn't really a problem in school. I was shy and a smart kid who got good grades, kept to her circle of friends, and for the most part had a normal...
