I Think I Am Ugly

    When I was in the eighth grade a bunch of girls

    would tell me on Facebook how I was the ugliest girl to exist. One time a girl told me no one would ever have sex with me because I'm so hideous. Even throughout my child hood people would tell me I'm ugly. In the ninth grade a boy texted me and told me that I was gorgeous and...

    Pictures Not Included

    I appreciate your interest and I respect your healthy curiosity. It's important to act on one's regard for the unknown and for this I empathize (I'm an engineer... being inquisitive is an occupational hazard lol.) I mean no disrespect and I promise I am not hiding anything. If...

    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...

    Ugly people just don't have much of a chance in

    life do we? Everywhere we go there are so many beautiful people and so how do we have even the slightest of chances to fit in or be appreciated. Television, films, books; everywhere we go there are the people to whom we can't relate to, the people who find it easy to make...

    I moved to Sweden. Needless to say

    as an overweight, under-tall curly haired-brunette I haven't exactly fit the criteria for what's considered attractive. Which is fine. I didn't come here to be beautiful. What isn't fine is that I can't get over that. A guy a few months ago told me there is not a single Swede...

    ...

    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. :)

    I Am My Own Ugliness.

    we met a guy and we started talking. Actually it was just me who talked to him because my friend was texting with her boyfriend. I really liked the guy's humour and stuff, I barely know someone like that. Then my friend added him on Facebook and I told him I'll add him later...

    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...

    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...

    Today I took a good look at my self

    and decided the reason no one wants me is because I am physically ugly and fat. I smile and have a kind personality but the physical unattractiveness of my body and face are what keep me single. I don't think I'm worthless and I won't be in a toxic or unfitting relationship. I...

    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...

    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
