    Ugly Reflection....

    Lately, when I look in the mirror I see this horrible deformed looking face staring back at me. I hate how it looks and just want to rip if off. I just stare at it and thinking why couldn't I be blessed with a beautiful face. Most asians are suppose to be pretty, but what the...

    Can't See What Others See...

    I've always struggled with my appearance ever since I was a teenager. I had the typical awkward phase of my teenage years, but magnified. Very bad skin, lanky, gawky and generally very shy. Unfortunately, whereas most people grow out of that phase and become comfortable with...

    to be honest, I'm getting really tired going to

    school being surrounded by my friends who are so pretty and perfect and smart and every positive trait you could think of. Every morning I wake up hoping I'll be better looking than I am now. I want to know what it's like to be called pretty. I want to know what it's like when...

    I just can't learn to love myself.

    .. Having been told that I'm ugly and that I'm worthless every single day for nearly 20 years by my sister, I just can't see anything good about myself :(

    I wish I could move to Oregon,

    because they recently passed a law where, kids who want a sex change can get one payed for by the state, and they don't need their parents permission. I hate being a guy so ******* much.

    "It's okay, you're perfect" says the person

    who had braces, who is already perfect. I'm sick of hearing those words, because I know it's not true. I'm not what people think, tbh. I was thinking last night, and people are literally just animals. And we are the most judgmental, ****** up animals. Like seriously guys...

    I hate my common dark brown eyes

    and dark brown hair. If I could choose I'd get rid of my light brown skin for white skin. I'd choose blue or green eyes and would choose soft hair. For a gender I'd pick male.

    /:

    It's horrible, I feel so ugly all the time and as much as I'm complimented on whatever aspect of myself, I still feel so ugly. You can't exactly tell someone they are ugly so tbh compliments don't really matter. Guess it's low confidence but whenever someone does compliment me, I...

    Mirror Mirror On The Wall.

    Ever since I was around eight, I’ve hated the way I’ve looked. I’ve never been harshly bullied, but if I would have been, I can honestly say I wouldn’t be here. I usually say nothing about my issues with how I look but since it is EP and everything, I thought “Why not...

    my reflection disgusts me.

    i hate it more than anything in the world. i hate mirrors and cameras because they allow me to see myself, and i don't want that, 'cause i think and know for a fact how ugly and fat i am. I'm too big, too big for myself and too big for society. The shape of my body is...

    On And Off

    Some days I wake up and I look in the mirror and I am OK with how I look. My hair is fine, face fine, I look normal... But here and there I have days where my perception of how I look seems to warp each time I stare into a mirror. Most of these days I see myself as ugly...

    Broken

    Every time I pass a mirror I get a feeling like I've just been punched in the gut because I feel very disappointed with what I see. I have been described as pretty and attractive - quite recently too (even though I'm 47 now) I DON'T SEE IT. The comments seem to be made in such a...
