I Think I'm Ugly

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,334 People

    I've had difficulties regaining self-worth

    after being cheated on. I didn't find myself ugly before and was rather confident with my body and looks. Now when I look at myself, all I do is compare myself to her. Even if my partner tells me how beautiful I am, I still don't believe him because of the words he told her...

    I don't think I'm completely ugly,

    but I don't think I'm drop dead gorgeous either. I think I'm just average. :/

    Only Ugly People Say That Beauty Is On The Inside

    I was sitting on the school bus one day, not bothering anyone just listening to my iPod when the girl in the seat in front of me turned around and asked what I thought about beauty. I said that beauty was on the inside, it depended on your personality. Well both her and all her...

    Born This Way

    I'm 18 years old and almost every day a stranger tells me I'm ugly (except for the days where I decide to stay home and do nothing) I can't say they are wrong, cause I know I am indeed ugly. It's ok, you don't have to tell me that beauty is inside (we all know that people are...

    I Am Ugly.

    I'm not fat. I'm not disfigured. I'm ugly. I'm disgusting. When you're ugly, the person you love and the person who loves you is never ever the same person. I wish I could make someone as happy as they make me but I can't. I deserve to be hated. I deserve every second of...

    I know I post this a lot,

    but I honestly believe that no matter what anyone says. I can't take it anymore, girls always look at me with total disgust when I'm outside, they always look away and avoid having to see my face. I don't blame them, I'm disgusting. I hate how I look, and, to make matters worse...

    Being Ugly Is One Of The Most Depressing Things Ever

    What I hate most about being ugly is the limitations. It really breaks my heart that I can't go out anywhere without nearly everyone staring at me, some pointing and some even laughing. To walk through the mall and not even get a flirty 'hello' but those other girls/guys get...

    I'm ugly, but it's okay

    because I'm also highly intelligent, funny, talented and I can "read" people. So, being ugly doesn't make me feel bad, and I don't need people telling me, "No, you're not," when I just come out and say it. Likewise, I don't need compliments on my looks, and I won't react to them...
