    Trying Not To Fall Into Depression

    I'm 21 but no one has ever shown any interest in dating me or anything else except for two very unattractive girls, which doesn't work because I'm gay. I don't feel like my face or my body matches who I am inside. Attractive or cool people never want to hang out with me at all. I...

    It Won't Let Go, And Neither Can I.

    My story is nothing substantial. I'm ashamed of how I feel, really. It's honestly pathetic, because I really do know how fortunate I actually am. It's just that also know I don't deserve it. One look in the mirror is all it takes to send me spiraling back into secret places of my...

    So Tired Of It

    I always ask myself, "What did I do to deserve this?" Being ugly is probably one of the worst things in today's society. The worst part is it never goes away, it will ALWAYS be with you, and that is an incredibly depressing thought. Now that school is out, I've been down on...

    Unfortunately I inherited the looks of my father

    as opposed to that of my beautiful Mother. Once a boy jeered at me "your Dad must be gay for you to come out looking like that". It's funny because I think my father was probably repressed somehow with his gender identity. As am I. I hope to lose weight so I can perhaps lose...

    I know appearances don't matter

    but I feel like people generally are nicer and are more drawn to you if you have a nice image, at least that's what I see in the real world and online.

    Being ugly just plain sucks

    but what adds to the suckiness of being ugly is the dating game. Just because I'm ugly doesn't mean I don't want to date, but I'm a realist, and I know that I need to go after a certain look, but I can't go up to a girl and say "Wow! You are so ugly just like me! I can't...

    I am fat and ugly and old.

    ..I truly hate who I am and what I look like but I haven't got the willpower to change these things (or the money). The ugly part is what bothers me the most and there is nothing that can be done about that.

    Why is it so hard for me to accept it?

    The earliest memory of being called ugly was in 3rd grade. I did not think it would follow me all the way in my 30s. I use to think I would grow up to be pretty because why wouldn't God make a woman beautiful?
