    And Then Called a ****...Lovely

    My extended family likes to gossip. And apparently, I'm a 'hot topic'. How I found this out: A while back, I had gone with my grandmother to visit with my aunt. After we sat down and started chit-chatting, she turned to inform of what people were saying about me. I could hardly...

    Me, Beautiful... Well, I Never...

    A few people have told me this, but I really struggle to grasp the concept. Alright, perhaps they simply mean that I am beautiful in my personality, because physically I would not find myself attractive. I'm awkwardly feminine when I bother to put a dress on, with a masculine...

    Every Once In a While

    My husband used to tell me how beautiful I was all the time but now that I have gained weight he does not say it so much anymore.  To me my beauty is on the inside not the outside.  I have never thought my physical appearance was beautiful.  Usually...

    Compliments

    I have been told a few times that I am beautiful, though I never believe what I have been told. I find it extremely difficult to accept compliments, I feel embarresed. I feel that when they say it they don't really know me, if they did they wouldn't think so. I have always felt...

    I was beautiful and then I was disabled in a

    car accident. So now my body is hideous but my mind is still the same.

    That I Was

    A guy I dated a few years back, he would constantly tell me I am beautiful. He was the first and last guy to tell me that. Sure I have had others tell me I look good or am pretty but he was the one and only who told me I was beautiful and that always meant the world to me.

    I Still Can't Wrap My Mind Around It.

    Nearly every day since I lost weight, someone has made some sort of comment pertaining to my looks. Strangers will make it a point to tell me I'm pretty, and friends are always making some comment about some desirable trait I have. I don't hate the image in the mirror. I'm not...

    Regardless

    People tell me that sometimes or I just notice how some men stare when I pass by. I do have an issue with accepting compliments and believing it. Nonetheless, yes, it is flattering, but I don't want to depend on that to feel good about myself, to feel pretty. I would like to...

    Not Sure If I Believe It

    I've been told on occasion that I am beautiful, and sometimes I feel beautiful, but mostly I just see my flaws. Usually if someone tells me I'm pretty, I don't really accept the compliment, but I point out the things that are wrong. I have noticed that when I go out I do...
