If I Am Beautiful, I Sure Don&...

If I am beautiful, I sure don't know it.  I wouldn't go as far as to call myself ugly but I don't see anything in the mirror that is gorgeous.  I think I'm pretty plain most of the time.  I feel overweight and acne-prone.  I feel flawed.  It's ok to be flawed, I know.  William Shakespeare once wrote a sonnet describing how the flaws of a woman were what made her beautiful and special.  But I don't feel that way.  Thank god for my personality, right?

Beauty doesn't necessarily mean how you look. That's part of it but not the only thing that matters. Besides in today's world, the media puts too much emphasis on the outside and not enough on what's on the inside. Looks are cool and all that but who'd want to have any kind of loving relationship with a great looking person who can't think past their own interests and benefits? Perhaps you're not looking into all the great things about you. Everyone has great things about them. Maybe it's time you focused on those. Not a psychologist mind you but that's just how I see it.
