    I hate my looks. I'm always told I'm pretty

    and blah blah but ugh, where? I'm such an insecure girl :'( it sucks so much. I think everyone is thinner or prettier than me.. It's always both at the same time.

    Even Just A Little Bit

    I know it's superficial and it won't get me any further in life but I do wish I was prettier. When I look in the mirror, which I avoid doing too often, I just see so many flaws it becomes a bit depressing. I'm not going to wake up one day and be beautiful, that just doesn't...

    I Wish I Was Hot! I want to know what it's

    like to turn heads everywhere I go. To be able to look good in anything without trying. To have a chance with guys that are out of my league, and be proud to show me off to their friends.

    Nowadays some times girls cake soo much make up

    on their face its ridiculous. Sometimes I feel insecure because I don't have what they do but then again I'm all natural I guess you can say. The media is twisting the idea of perfection.

    My boyfriend and I have been dating

    for a year now. I'm best friends with his ex. Long story short, we became friends after he and I became official. Every time I see her pictures, it makes me jealous because she's absolutely gorgeous. She's perfect. It makes me wonder why he'd break up with her because she's so...
