Mediocre At Best.

my mom tells me i'm beautiful and so does my father, but i always felt that they only said it because that's what they're supposed to say. i just don't see it or believe it. i think i'm decent looking, rather plain looking but beautiful i am not.

I really feel for you because i use to think the same thing about myself. Honestly, there are things about myself that i wish I could change, but when I realized that it could be a lot worse, this made me appreciate myself more just the way I am. One of the reasons why I've always felt like this is because of my childhood. When you get teased for so long, you start to have a low self esteem. i dont know if you can relate to this, but I think there is another reason you feel this way about yourself. I think it goes further than you not liking what you see when you look in the mirror. What about te people who were born deformed and cant help their physical apperance no matter what they do? The point is, we can do things to make our apperance better so we should just make the best of it. Take care and hope to talk to you soon.

God gives people different qualities. I'm sure you have many advantages that are more important than beauty.
