I Hate Being Ugly

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 821 People

    Hate my face . A lot .

    Not ever being good enough for everyone else . I mean they say it doesn't matter what society has to say but at the end it hurts what they have to say . Being ugly, you're looked at differently like if we're much less of people than everyone else ,

    I look in the mirror

    and I literally hate myself. Nobody sees me because they're too focused on my face. They don't realize how much it hurts to be called ugly and know it's true.

    This Is Truth, Not A Pity Party.

    I'm ugly, I'm fat, I always have been, and I really hope it changes soon. I really, REALLY want to be a part of this fashion forum I found back in May, but I know it will never happen. There's a beauty standard everyone needs to meet in order to be a member, or at least a...

    I used to think people looked

    or stared at me, becuase I'm ugly. I found out it is very common for people with Autism, to get this. I have Autism, high fuctioning.

    Being skinny, you probably think it's a dream,

    but it's a nightmare. It's a nightmare where I can't wake up and live on. No, my name is Rachel and I'm 13-years old, I weigh 30 kg (frightening Ikr), and I'm 5'4. My whole life I've been skinny and thinking that my body is fine, I was wrong. This year I've noticed how skinny I...

    I'm Sorry My Physical Form Makes You Want To Flee.

    I remember vividly one afternoon riding the school bus home. The other kids surrounded me, kneeling in the seats before and behind me, or crowding the space to my side in the aisle. In those days there was an expression for taunting someone so violently the person would cry...

    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...

    that don't understand what it's like to be unattractive saying "be confident and you'll be attractive." NO. Confidence enhances what physical beauty you already have. It doesn't create some if there isn't any. I'm taking a stand for, for lack of a better term, "the uglies". No...

    All my life (even elementary) I've been called ugly. People always tell me my imperfections. Such as "your skin is to dark" "you got such a big nose" "your smile is so weird, wtf lol." I also used to be fat, I was 180. I was about 5'3 at the time so I looked big. So I went...

    Our Society...

    I cannot stand how our society has defined what good looks are, and how it kicks those of us who are by no means "beautiful" to the curb. I have dealt with it my whole life, and can testify that it is not only women who feel this way. Yes we all have those in our lives who will...

    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...
