    I took a really gay picture of myself

    and I made it my profile picture. How is it? Be honest? Should I keep it or change it back to the RHCP picture I had?

    I'm not very confident.

    And I hate my looks. I'm ugly. And fat. And I'm spotty. I don't like my looks one bit. Who else feels like this??

    I don't know how it happened but I finally woke up. I've woken up to see that all women , including myself, posses amazing beauty. I don't want to talk about the cliche of it being internal beauty. We all know that exists. We also tend to say it when we want to comfort one...
