    Ugliness Equals Loneliness

    I've always hated my face... A chubby/fat face that has been embraced by acne since I was 13. And I'm not even fat. I've already tried to change a few things about myself, so I could accept me and feel a little better. I've tried make up: soft colors, strong colors, weird colors...

    I Feel Like In America, If You Are Black Then You Are Automatically Ugly To Most.
