    I'd say beauty is subjective.

    If we're gonna be real here the concept of it will always be a figment of someone else's imagination. and still it means so much :/ it's the kind of lowered self esteem that hits me the hardest.

    I understand no one thinks they're "pretty.

    " Everyone has things they like about themselves, and things they don't. I know I'm not the only one who has said this in their lifetime, but I wish I was pretty. I want to be skinny, and have a flawless face, and be perfect. I see other girls who are so much prettier. Like the...

    I am not writing this experience

    because I do not feel beautiful because I love who I am. We all come to that stage in our lives when we question our appearance. Heck I did once but I pushed that thought quickly away. I want to tell all of you that you are BEAUTIFUL. To feel truly beautiful is to love yourself...

    I don't think I'm unattractive,

    I just don't think that I'm attractive, I don't feel like I'm the type of person who grabs people's attention, so I'm kinda like a chair.. Or maybe a lamp.

    I think the world categorises too much about

    what 'beautiful' is. For example modelling. Models usually have to be skinny which I think is defeating the object to it, girls are beautiful whatever size they are if they are chubby, thin, short or tall. Popular magazines are promoting people to be skinny. I would love to hear...

    I Wish

    I wish I just could think of myself as pretty. I think everybody is beautiful, hands down. We all are. No matter what. But I know that's a little different than making ourselves actually believe it. I have a humped back, always have. So my hair is always left down, otherwise you...

    I really do. I never complain about it.

    but sometimes when I'm alone and catch a glimpsed myself in the mirror, I feel like absolute ****. I feel like my life would be a lot easier if my face was pretty. I'm happy with my body, but my face is what guys are gonna look at constantly and what they judge me off. I hate my...

    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?

    I'm so insecure, it's awful.

    There are some days when I think hmm I actually look decent but then I look in the mirror and think eww. People always say I look cute, or pretty, but I hope I'll find some one who thinks I'm beautiful even though I no I'm not. Lol this whole things probably sounds stupid.

    It's a bit funny how some comments people make

    never leave you. Like, I remember last year in gym class a boy was talking to us (I was in a group with my friends) and he was listing off how old everyone looked.... 'Yeah you look like 17, oh and you look sooo old, like 19!' etc and then he came to me and said "OMG you could...

    I wish I was prettier,

    and recognised as society's idea of 'pretty.' wearing glasses isn't something considered 'beautiful.' perhaps then boys would respect me more and I wouldn't spend all day idolising oter girls, whilst hiding behind a face of makeup.

    There's a saying that goes: "If a guy tells you

    that you are hot, he likes your body. If a guy tells you that you are pretty, he likes your face. If a guy tells you that you are beautiful, he likes your heart." I don't know whether or not this is true, but I do know that love is different for all who experience it.

    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...
