    I'm happy people say I'm pretty,

    but at the same time I hate it. People make me sound like some supermodel, and honestly I'm no where close, I look in the mirror and I see this ugly girl, with crooked teeth, a big nose and ugly plain eyes. My hair is disgusting, and sometimes I just wish I could change. I wish...

    when I was in middle school I use to be bullied

    and told that I'm not beautiful. sometimes you hear that so much you start to believe it. I don't think I'm beautiful. I think I'm ugly. one time when I was in 8th grade I was in the hallway and about three girls came up to me saying how I was the only one in the whole 8th grade...

    Yep people tell me that.

    But I don't feel it. I still feel ugly. I still feel as though they were all lying. Why would anyone call me beautiful ? I'm so retarded. Why would my teacher say that I have a good heart? I'm do mean and I curse a lot in my heart. I am snobbish. I follow my emotions. My roller...

    Assume that your beautiful

    and move on!! 😈. I know it ain't that easy but the question "am I beautiful or not" will be a never ending one. Thinking you're beautiful doesn't have = arrogant.

    I remember that particular scene from the movie

    "White Chicks" when the girl in the dressing room started freaking out about her body and every outfit she tried on. Although that was hilarious and fictitious, I still think she was lucky because she had a body that could fit in any item. In my case, I struggle with that. My...

    While at the gym this morning,

    an attractive man that I occasionally see there approached me today. He told me that he had to know my name because I am beautiful. I thanked him, we exchanged names, shook hands and went back to our workouts.

    My family and some friends tell me I'm

    beautiful, gorgeous even, but I wish I felt that way. At school, you would think that I would get all the attention because I'm beautiful. I'm not saying I want all this attention, I'm just saying that I wish someone who knows me could acknowledged that and make me feel good...

    I get comments on how beautiful I am,

    but I don't think I am. When I deny it people just keep telling me I am. Some days I do feel like I am beautiful. But other days, I feel really fat and ugly. I wish that I could be beautiful every day like people say. 😢

    People say I'm cute. Others say I'm beautiful.

    I look in the mirror and see just a normal girl, I think I'm not pretty, beautiful or what guys would say hot. I also never feel beautiful unless I take a nice picture... But then again it only lasts for a few seconds..

    What Does Being Beautiful Mean Anyway

    Is being beautiful purely a physical attribute? Is it more defined by a person's inner being...who they are within their hearts? Or is being beautiful synonymous with feeling beautiful? I have been called "beautiful" before. I actually hear that compliment a lot here, and it's...

    I often wonder if they just say it to make me feel better?

    I don't feel beautiful,

    I don't want to be called pretty neither. it just reminds me of what happened in my past and I know I can't trust their words. I know they mean well but if they knew the truth then I think they'd stop

    that I'm pretty or beautiful. I used to believe them, but I don't anymore. I'm defiantly not attractive in any way.

    It sucks feeling like this.

    A lot of people tell me"oh you're so pretty and beautiful" and I honestly don't feel that way. I feel like my flaws override my looks and it makes me feel like **** because I don't think I'm beautiful. I feel like I'm just average or even just less than average. I just wish I...

    I hesitated for a moment to join this group.

    It sounds needy, perhaps it is. It is the truth,for me, though. I have never felt beautiful and never really felt that this the one attribute should be so important that it eclipses the more important attributes such as, kindness, intelligence, or overall personality. Here...

    as people say I am. I get compliments all the time about my looks or personality but most of the time I don't see what others see. I wish I had more confidence.

    and gorgeous (not to sound conceited) and I HATE it. It makes me feel awkward and uncomfortable, I don't take compliments well. My boyfriend/ friends/ mom always tell me they don't understand what I see in the mirror when I look at my self. But the honest truth is I don't see...

    messages of how pretty or cute I am from the creeps but at the end of the day I don't believe anything they say because I know they just want something from me.
