    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...

    I always do back then.

    Way back when I was in preschool. When I didn't had friends. When all I did during playtime was to watch all of my classmates play the newly made play ground or play princesses. I was neglected back then. I felt like it already even when I was still young. Nobody likes me. Nor...

    I know I am ugly. A woman at work just

    comfirmed it by saying you "dont look like your selfies". I know cause look a littlw better after all the filters I put on the pictures so I can look a tad bit better. I wish I filters when I walked around in real life.

    Bad Genes

    I have a habit of thinking people's rejection

    of me is always due to my appearance. When I was around 10 or 11 my dad would always ignore me or act irritated with me and I blamed it on appearance. Now I do the same with everyone.

    I use to hate being ugly.

    It sucks. But I guess I came to acceptance with it. I don't wanna be ugly but I guess people don't pick how there born. I'm thinking maybe reincarnation is real and that I sinned badly in my last life, like maybe I murder a person or raped a child. It would explain other other...

    I Am My Own Ugliness.

    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...

    In school I was always the ugly girl.

    I didn't have friends and no one ever wanted to go out with me. I'm 18, have never been in a relationship, never been kissed or even held hands with a guy. The reason is because I'm ugly. People deny it when I say this, but I know for a fact that I am not attractive. Too many...

    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...

    Vile.

    The Saga Continues

    "Now what's that on my face?

    ", I think to myself as I do the morning routine of inspecting for zits. "A new zit? Maybe one of those huge, painful ones that never pop?" No, not this time. The little red, itchy dots soon revealed their true nature as moles - nature's little "**** you!". On my face. Ah well...

    Life is really difficult in this modern society

    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 wouldn't exactly say I believe I'm ugly,

    I personally feel like I'm handsome. Though I'm pretty sure everyone else feels that way, at least from some of the things they say about other guys. I always hear how cute or attractive some other guy is from girls and some of the guys I know, both hetero and homo. But nobody's...

    I found this on the Internet

    and its kind of long, but I think it sums up my feelings well. It also gave me a unique perspective that I never thought of before. Maybe God made me look like this for reason and hopefully one day I can accept the way God made me. Please note: That my mom never called me ugly...

    Since primary school I have always been the

    weak one, the best target to bully. First years were so hard. It made me hate myself so so much. I'm trying to get over it, but it's so hard. Bullying is never gonna stop. It made me such a different person. People should be nicer.
