    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 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...

    I need a flat stomach.

    Nice cheek bones, a thigh gap, prettier eyes, and no glasses. I need to be pretty.

    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...

    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...

    Working On It Slowly But Surely!

    I'm overweight and think that I'm hideous with the extra baggage. I'm getting rid of it though. It's a working progress. My eyes are this terrible color of green which i cannot stand. One day almost three weeks ago a woman said i had beautiful eyes and i practically laughed...

    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...

    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...

    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...
