I Think I Am Ugly

    I have an incredibly low self esteem.

    . none, really. Zero confidence.. I truly believe I am the rot of the earth. I am ugly, I am stupid, I am a pathetic excuse for a human. I am deeply depressed lately about my appearance. It's gotten really bad. I compulsively check mirrors.. I don't know why, I get freaking...

    Vile.

    I am disgusting. Why can't I be one of those beautiful girls who have the perfect figure and are attractive with no effort. No matter what I do I'm the opposite of that. I'm ugly and fat. I'm now avoiding mirrors.

    tall and skinny. people always have to ask do

    you eat, are you ok? Girls always give me this awkward "not being mean but keep movin look". I hate to look at myself in the mirror if I`m shaving or something. I'm almost sure I will never find anyone to be with due to my looks and mental problems. I feel it's important not to...

    Enough Is Enough!: a Message to the Ugly

    Let the truth be told, you are who you are only because you THINK you are. You are the handicap you must face. You're the only one who can pull the trigger of your heart. Nothing stand in the way of who you want to be but you! If you believe that is a false statement then you ARE...

    I Am My Own Ugliness.

    Have you ever looked into the mirror and seen a reasonable normal face?I see that everyday and yet after years of being told by high school bullies that I am a 'Fugly b****' that reasonable face in the mirror starts to resemble those vile words.People can sit and tell me that it...

    Here, I'm continuing my sad pathetic story.

    Take out delivery men treat me just as bad as all the others. I'm 48 years old and when I look back on my life, only 10 of those were good. In those 10 years, there were still problems. 38 years of hell. I've overdosed on drugs twice and tried a few more times. I've cut my...

    I don't think I'm ugly.

    I know I am ugly. I am a gelatinous mass on two legs, held together with ripping seams. My face is stained in ugly red blotches that dry constantly, more temperate than weather. My body is riddled with scars, bruises that never healed, a battleground on my skin. More often than...

    I Hate Myself.

    I've known I was ugly all my life. I've tried to kill myself only 4 times in my life, the first time was in the 5th grade. The only reason I'm still alive is because I'm afraid I won't do it right and end up a vegetable and I'm terrified of not knowing what comes after death. I...

    I was probably more confident

    as a kid, if only because I didn't think of myself at all. I never thought about whether my eyebrows were shaped weirdly or my butt was too big. Nobody ever mentioned my stomach, flat or not. Nobody told me I was ugly. Nobody tells me I'm ugly. There are some things you just don...

    Understand that when I call myself ugly,

    that's what I believe. You telling me that you think otherwise is nice to hear, but I don't believe you. But me saying I'm ugly isn't reverse psychology either. I'm not looking for attention. Once again, it's what I truly believe.

    I don't believe anything about me is beautiful

    at all. Not my personality and certainly not my looks. I've always believed I was very abnormal. As if I wasn't meant to be a human being at all. Maybe I put myself down too much, but however many times someone tells me that it's all a lie I keep telling myself, I can't seem to...

    body insecurities. But it seems they are worse. I have never thought I was beautiful or pretty. In fact I've never thought much of myself at all. I do wish I had confidence. I know that a person is more than their looks and it's really superficial of me to worry about how I look...

    Ugly Duckling to Duck

    Beauty is personified from the inside. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We hear quotes like that all the time to make us all feel a little better. But the camera doesn't lie. If we don't look good, we just don't look good. Tests have been done, and even babies have a...

    In fact, I actually typed that I wanted to he in the group "I am ugly," but the site changed it. I'm too short and too fat and my nose is too big, not to mention the fact that being a terrible person already makes me terribly ugly. Every time someone looks at me, I feel like...
