    I Feel Unpretty Only When I Step Outside

    When I'm alone at home, I think I'm attractive. But for whatever reason, when I'm around others, I think I'm unpretty. And fat. Others will say differently. But that's how I feel. Also, I didn't know how often i was putting myself down. Until my roommate pointed it out. She...

    What is the definition of pretty? How can we as a whole decide on one definition? Is it even possible? Every single person has a different opinion but is their a more accurate answer? Define.

    I need to embrace myself

    and accept that I am in fact, beautiful in my own way. I don't need a *corpse pale* fair skin to be pretty, I don't need a pair of big eyes. I just need the skin I'm in and a mind that thinks I'm already good enough for myself. Though I am not fair-skinned or have a set of...

    Who Am I?

    I believe that everyone looks at life as a different world. The world I see is dark, mysterious and full of pain. Everywhere I go I come across someone who gives me a strange look. The kind of look of disgust. To me if feels like they'd rather claw their eyes out than look...

    Really Want To..

    I don't see myself as pretty at all.. people tell me I am.. but that's when I'm wearing make up and I have my hair all done. I practically wear a load of fake hair on my head because I hate my hair so much, It's not me though. Without it all I'm just ugly and disgusting... I...

    Must Feel So Nice :)

    I can't even imagine what it feels like to be pretty. I would think it's fun. You would have more clothing and hairstyle choices... people are nicer to pretty people... and you are considered an asset in certain jobs. Wow. Lucky girls!!

    I Do Sometimes

    I just wish it happened more often and I really believed it. I don't think I'm horrid, well sometimes I do, but mostly I just think I'm, erm, pretty plain..?

    But I Don't...

    Sure, I have fleeting moments where I think, 'Damn, I look good...' But then, I look down at the rest of my body, and its like... 'Oh. Yeah. Forgot...' I think I have beautiful eyes. I love dolling them up, playing with makeup, toying with the way I look... But, oh, how I wish I...

    No intimacy for 3 weeks.

    No excuses either. However, this is how I cope with the pain of rejection from my common-law spouse. Since that time, I've splurged on new makeup. I went to the "spa" and got a little work done. I have a set of long beautiful nails. I dyed my hair. I have a new...

    Too Scared To Wear Makeup

    For the longest time, I've been too frightened to even try wearing nice clothes and makeup. I didn't want people to think along the lines of "a hog dressed in silk is still a hog all the same" and I soon realized that I was perpetuating my own problem, and fulfilling the...

    Your Prettyful

    I think the most thing about someone being pretty is selfconfidance. No matter what weight or abnormalities. Just being confidant. Its the most prettiest thing to me. ( by the way Im not a good speller)
