    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...

    /:

    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...

    My mum tells me at least

    once a day how over weight I am or if I wore different clothes how much prettier I would look. It drives me crazy! I hate how she always feels like she has to have an opinion on how I look or dress. She makes me feel really insecure even on days when I'm feeling good about...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I look at myself in those big windows on stores and gag. My reflection just looks so displeasing. It's no wonder no guy wants to date me. I'm sick of looking this way! My handicapp just adds to my horrible ugly looking body. It's getting to the point that I don't even want to go...

    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...

    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...

    I see all these beautiful faces with sexy

    bodies on instagram and I cant take it. These girls are filled with compliments everday. They get to live a life I cant. I am the opposite. Flat chest awkard looking. Undesirable. I wanna feel like them and get noticed by men.
