    I hate it that I am hairy,

    it's the grossest thing ever. I see such pretty people and I hate myself even more. I hate that I don't have a body to boast of. So depressing to be me, why did my parents make me?

    I don't like the way I look,

    all of my friends are stunning and I always feel like the ugly one of the group 😔 if someone pays a bit of attention to me, it's not for me, it's to try and get close to my friends 😔

    Deflation: I was out shopping yesterday

    and while I was paying for an item and talking to the cute salesgirl, I caught a look at myself in profile in the mirror. I could feel my good mood slip away. "Oh no, do I really look like that?" No wonder nobody notices me.
