    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    /:

    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...

    It's hard to feel sexy when you don't like the way you look, haha. I'm slowly working my way into better shape, though. At least until I'm confident that I'm a healthy individual.
