    I don't feel beautiful.

    No one has ever made me feel beautiful. No one is here.

    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 Could Be Pretty

    Right. Maybe if I weren't so bitter. Maybe if I weren't angry and hateful and spiteful. Maybe if all that ugliness from within didn't leak out to show just how hideous I really am. I'm sure it's enough by now that it is physically visible. Maybe what I'm saying is that I wish I...

    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...

    Reflection

    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...

    I can't ever find anyone.

    Why is being a guy so hard. I'm the only person who can't find a relationship. Just want to end the torched and pain. :(

    and fit the list of what makes girls pretty. But even if I had everything on the list, someone would find a way to make me ugly. Who relates?

    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 don't put beauty and aesthetics on the top of

    my list. (Ironically) However, in the past few months my mind has been racing through things like thinness , clear skin, stupid gap thighs, big eyes and so on so forth . It kills me to think about these things that I once thought were useless..and beauty that I will never obtain...

    Now I am nearly 19 and in love with a man who loves me for who I am.Well I am pretty happy now.. So don't be sad for not being beautiful, when u have the right people in your life,they will treat you and love you well.

    I know I should not write this down,

    but it is the Internet and I can be open and honest here right? I don't have the problem most do... I don't look in the mirror and see ugly, or a mean person, or anything that reflects back on my personality instead of my outward appearance. But I do often see a boy looking back...

    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

    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...

    There is nothing I want more

    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...

    Confessions.

    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...

    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...

    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...
