    A Face Even A Mother Cannot Love...:(

    Since I was a young child, I got to feel the difference of treatment between beautiful and less beautiful people. My cute, sweet little sister always got all the attention and could do everything she wanted, people would still cuddle her and battle for her attention - while I was...

    Pretty= Fixing Everything

    I think if I was at least average looking, I would be happy, or at least not how I am now. Am I the only one who thinks being pretty would solve everything? If I had plastic surgery tomorrow and felt better about how I looked would I feel better on the inside? Who knows.

    I wish I was pretty. I wish I turn heads.

    I wish I didn't have to try so hard, even though people still call me ugly. Do I really look ugly? Why do my teachers call me a guy? Do I look like a guy?

    Boyfriend Doesn't Think I'm Pretty

    My boyfriend doesn't think I'm pretty, let alone beautiful. I don't think he is very attracted to me in general, but he claims that he is. I do believe he genuinely is fooling himself that he is attracted to me, but is not naturally attracted to me. A few days ago, although I had...

    Born Pretty Is Not A Life-long Advantage

    If you're pretty, life is easier for you, male or female, especially if you're young. But mostly for pretty girls. Otherwise, other kids will make fun of you, often out of fear of being made fun of, themselves. Being pretty has a very pecking-order aspect to it, and as long as...

    I wish I had no acne.

    I wish I was skinny. I wish society didn't frown upon scars. I just wish to be pretty. I've devolved eating disorders cuz I wanna be pretty. I also cut. Each cut, even the smallest, holds the most emotions. I'm here if you wanna talk. I'll listen & not judge.

    I've tried my hardest to be pretty

    and feel pretty but it doesn't work. I've worn make up and straightened my hair since I was 11 and I started dying my hair when I was 14 all in the attempt to look good. I don't think I'm ugly, just that I'm plain and uninteresting.
