    I Can't Stand

    being told that I'm beautiful when all I see in the mirror is a monster. I hate that I take every single little comment to heart and let them ruin my whole day..even if its from a complete stranger. I wish I had perfect skin...and that I felt happy in it. But life doesn't work...

    Many girls are beautiful I'm sure it's a great

    life to never have to question what your worth. I always feel like I have to fight for my confidence. It is very draining. I wish I could just relax and feel beautiful. But when I relax I am just lonely. I don't know if life is meant to teach you a lesson or if I should just...

    I wish I were beautiful-It's the only thing

    I've ever wanted. Everywhere I go and everyone I see is so beautiful and skinny. While I'm fat and ugly. I see girls at my school date guy after guy so why can't i? It's a curse never to be broken. I feel like I'm drowning, and there are people around but they're just watching...

    I see mine every day.  I know what I see.  I see a woman in her 30's who has had 3 kids.  I see a mess. It's shallow and selfish, I know.  But I always wanted to be beautiful.  Instead, I have always been the ugly duckling.  Growing up I truly was...

    Everyone is beautiful.

    We are all beautifully flawed. Don't society fool you. We are all beautiful human beings. But we are all different as well. Truly look in the mirror and see yourself. You are all beautiful as you are.

    I'm Not As Confident As I Seem

    I've never been anything special and i'm not claiming to be. I just want to be cherished, loved and held like no one has ever been held before. I want to be told that everything is going to be ok, and that I shouldn't worry so much. I want someone to hold my hand even though i'm...

    But I just feel ugly from the inside out

    for the first time in my life. I've always been over weight but that never bothered me. I felt beautiful and I was confident, so much so that I was actually intimidating to people. Now I'm just another sad fat girl.

    I think I'm not ugly.

    People didn't call me ugly, some of them even said that I'm pleasant-looking or quite pretty. But, my friends around me were gorgeous, and sometimes I just wish that maybe someday, someone would noticed me before he noticed my friends.. Paid more attention to me than to my...

    I don't think I'm "ugly",

    but I don't think I'm beautiful. And I'm not just talking about being physically beautiful, I want my soul to beautiful as well. I just hate how I think sometimes. -The pessimist

    Inside Or Out

    Outside Im just not. No two ways about it. Im not glamourous, or beautiful, or any of that stuff. Inside Im just as ugly. I get angry, I get jealous, I dont have that dignity, that grace, that self assurance.

    I miss being seen. I miss being smiled at. At home I was something. I didn't just blend into the wall paper. Easy as ignoring sadness. My sadness. If I was beautiful people would see me. I would shine right? My room mates would smile more if I was shone with something. Maybe I...

    It's How Things Are.

    You know how it is. Dodging cameras, dodging mirrors, untagging photos online. Comments. They're the worst. It started with a teacher in year 4, making a comment about me being at the back when running in P.E. Telling me it was my own fault for "scoffing all the cakes". Then it...

    than to be beautiful. I want to be stunning, to drop jaws and to turn heads. Instead, I look in the mirror with disgust. I wish I could cut huge chunks of flesh from my form; dig my nails in and rip away that which weighs me down. I feel imprisoned by my own body. Locked in a...

    My Mask Is My Identity

    I am not beautiful. I'm not even cute. My boyfriend would disagree and while I'm grateful to him, I still wallow in my little pool of self-pity. Every day, I look in the mirror and think, "If only my breasts were bigger." "If only my eyes were prettier." "If only I didn't have...

    who show some interest and the women they usually date and then I laugh. I just laugh at myself in the mirror. These women are so beautiful and me? Just on the inside. It makes me sad to think they would want to be seen with me, show their friends me and be proud of me when they...

    It’s funny, I do not want to be deemed as shallow but somehow that seems inevitable. It is not other people’s looks I’m obsessed with rather than my own flaws. When it comes to others I inexplicably begin to trace their best features, knowing in my mind that everyone...
