    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 didn't always see myself this way.

    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...

    Now obviously I know I am not.

    The amount of people telling me I'm attractive rises everyday. But I cannot get over that I don't look like the actresses, that I'm not as sexy as the p9rnstars, that I'm not as fashionable as the models. I feel like I've failed to achieve the perfection society has put onto me...
