    to anyone who thinks their ugly.

    Look again. Your beautiful. Yes everyone has flaws. But flaws are pretty. Flaws make you, you. Everyone is beautiful just in their own way. Never feel like your any less of your self. Everyone's beautiful

    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.

    To Ugly To Fall In Love.

    I am really, really ugly. My mother was a beauty queen, but unfortunately I happened to get my father's appearance, and that's one of the reasons why I'm ugly. My older sister looks like my mother so she is beautiful, and sometimes I'm jealous. How could she be so beautiful...

    I'm turning 16 soon and I haven't had a

    boyfriend. At my age, boys only notice beautiful girls, the ones who are skinny, have a lot (maybe too much) confidence... I'm not that girl. I am overweight and guys only notice that. There are no boys who will think "oh look at that girl, she might be very nice person", they...

    I honestly feel I'll never look the way I'm

    supposed to, in this society... I've never been pretty, or skinny. Living in this society is rough, especially as a girl. You have to look a certain way or you're shunned and in my school it's awful. If you're ugly then you are left with no friends. I look at tv stars and models...

    I've had insecurity issues

    since I was in elementary school... Rarely I'll feel good about how I look. I don't complain that much to others about it.. I don't like talking about it too much unless im close to you

    I've met quite a few shallow people out there.

    One of them is my lecturer. He just got transferred to my uni and I gotta say, his introduction was quite irritating. " I can't tolerate people with bad odor and acne." It was extremely offensive to me because I've been suffering from acne for quite a while now. At that time...

    I hate the way I look.

    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...

    You know what sucks?

    when people think they have to remind you about the way you look. Like they are compelled to remind you, ya' know...just in case you forget. Because looking into the mirror everyday and having to see your butt ugly face isn't enough. Not to mention people's rude comments.

    I think everyone is very self-critical of their

    looks, regardless of what other people may think. But I think the negativity affects some people more than others. Some people just accept it and have the self-esteem to not care. Others, like myself, sadly can't come to terms with their appearances that well. I have some "good...

    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...

    Lately I've been feeling quite ugly.

    Fat and ugly. I have always had my good days and bad days, but recently I've been really depressed about it because I've felt like I'm nothing. A nobody to be cared about. Unloved by all and all out of my own love to compensate. The more I think about it, the more I know I have...

    I used to have the lowest self esteem around two years ago. I hated myself so much, I thought I was hideous and too fat to function. I don't know what changed, but I am now willing to say that I am pretty. It's a wonderful feeling. :)
