    But I'm Just Plain Ugly

    What can i do if I'm just plain ugly? If only I could just feel that confidence even if it was just foolish pride or vanity, I'd rather be shrouded in that veil of ignorance than be revealed the actuality of my ugly appearance. I know I am ugly because whenever I feel really...

    Sometimes

    Sometimes I really do - like when I just get out of the shower and my face is all clean and pink and my eyes look sea green instead of brown Or when I go to the beach and my hair is tangled in sea salt waves and my face a bronzed brown. And then it's gone. Then I look in the...

    Again

    I want to feel beautiful again. About 9 years ago, I lost over 200lbs and began to feel beautiful. I felt that way for a long time. I kept off the weight for over 5 years, until my mom got very ill and almost died twice over a period of 2-3 years. I just gave up on eating...

    To Be

    Sometimes I Really Do, Sometimes I Feel Hideously Ugly

    I know I'm an attractive person, more-or-less, sometimes more than others. But I've been struggling to break free emotionally from an abusive past, in which I had to act like a little girl (I'm in my mid-20s), act stupid, act like the other person is better than me. THAT makes me...

    I’ve never felt beautiful.

    I had two beautiful sisters growing up, and it did not matter how many people told me we were all beautiful, I never felt it. Boyfriends told me I was the prettiest of the three, even a few family members had said that too. You know how it is though, they were just trying to be...

    Feeling ugly or beautiful is actually a state

    of the mind. What triggers you to feel either of those two things are the stimuli being thrown at you, for instance the people around you and the situation in front of you. People would always be people, they could be good and sometimes could be mean. When I was young I was...

    I want just one person to think I am the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. That I am the only one he'll ever need or want. I want to look into his eyes & just know that I'm beautiful to him.....

    I'm skinny, but recently I've been gaining

    weight due to eating unhealthy stuff and eating a lot due to stress. I recently visited my older sister and she slapped me on my thighs as I was getting ready to sit down near her and she told me "Oooh, girl! You are getting thick. What have you been doing?" Since then, I have...

    I'd Love To

    I do want to feel beautiful. I've never felt beautiful in my life. I'm working on losing weight. This fall when the weather is cooler, I am going to start my walking regime again. I've lost over 13 pounds and I plan to lose at least 20-40 more pounds.

    Memories...

    When my boyfriend was here, I remember a couple times when we showered together how he would dress me in the towel afterward. He did it carefully and it was... like a very revealing dress (well, how large do you expect a bath towel to be?!). It made me feel beautiful, sexy, like...

    I am cute. Some say even beautiful.

    I know they are... Well,kinda right. They exaggerate a little but it's only because they love me. The thing is: growing up I wasn't told I was beautiful enough. I was told I was fat or something when I wasn't. I was normal. But the ugly comments are the ones who stick with...

    I'm Not Very Good With Titles, Sorry.

    I constantly get put down, and told that I'm ugly, or I have a weird nose. I pretend it's okay, but it's not. It crushes me. I feel hideous, and feel like I'm just a hideous monster. For once in my life, I'd like to feel beautiful.

    He Called Me Beautiful

    It was just a date - not our first, not our most important. We were meeting at the restaurant. It was a nice place, but not too $$$. For reasons I don't remember, I decided to wear an outfit I had not worn for him before -- a short flared skirt and a lace top, with booties...

    I Sure Do

    I want to feel beautiful. I have to define beautiful I guess and at the moment Im not even capable of doing that. I'm not depressed, I just don't feel beautiful. I would like to feel beautiful with another person... I need some physical beauty in my life.

    For Once.

    All my life i can remember, i've always been the the "sporty one" the "smart one" the "weird one" or even worse "that one". I was never called pretty, cute, adorable, gorgeous... let alone, beautiful. I know that beauty is defined by so many people differently, but the things i...

    like I want to be able to look at myself and feel it in my bones, from my own soul, but I just don't, that's my hope for myself one day.

    Am I Ugly? Probably Not.....Hopefully Not.

    Days maybe weeks maybe even months passed by. I haven't said much to him that I remember. All I remember is telling my friends, and I had that one friend that couldn't let it go. She had to know the truth. The truth I didn't want to hear. I didn't want to ask him out I just...

    Fat Day

    I had a fat day today.  You know, one of those days when nothing seems to fit right, when all your 'back up feel good' clothes are in the washing pile and each consecutive outfit seems to make you look fatter than the first.  It thankfully doesnt happen to me often, I...

    Beauty Is In the Eye of Beholder

    And if I feel beautiful, I will be happier. At least I think so, since I have never felt beautiful. I know I am not ugly, and I even look good, but I never feel beautiful. When someone tell me I am beautiful, I become suspecious of his intentions. I think he is trying to deceive...
