Just As the Title Says ^

Ever since middle school I have been bullied because of the way I look.

I have always been 'the ugly one'. I wear glasses and I used to wear braces.

When I reached upper school I piled on the makeup and tried to change my clothes and hair but still, nothing has taken away the hate I feel for my appearance. I hate looking in the mirror and I'm constantly wishing I could be someone else - I've got it into my head that if I were pretty, I would be happy.

It's all very well for attractive people to say that looks aren't everything and beauty is only skin deep, but I just wish I didn't have this horrible ugly face and body :(

If that is your pic I think you are beautiful....unfortunately I feel the same and want plastic surgery...i had an ex tell me at 17 that I was ugly...she was my first love and looked terrible...i personally hot the gym to build body gets beautiful fire to great would be a shame to have surgery and everyone love you and would show how shallow society really is .....i want it too.

From your tiny picture I can't tell if you're really ugly or making it up. From the tone of your story this is more about self esteem than your actual looks.

Braces are not permanent, and your eyesight can't be fixed by plastic surgery. Pardon me for saying I think it's what's in your head that needs fixing.

Before you rush off to get expensive and unnecessary surgery, look at some recent pics of Michael Jackson.

F.Y.I--Most of the people who get plastic surgery end up regretting it--they usually end up feeling worse after wards. Look at Michael Jackson (he is the biggest example I can think of) He wasn't a bad looking guy when he was young--but he had low self esteem and kept getting surgery done to his face--do you think that he looked better before or after?

AND, we're all going to be old and wrinkly one day: )

It not that Micheal Jackson had plastic surgery. He just had a lousy plastic surgeon .

I used to share the feeling of looking in the mirror and hating what I saw. I always thought nicer clothes, whiter teeth, better hair, or a thinner body would make me happier. but I knew even if I changed my appearance and was the most beautiful girlt in the world I would still feel ugly because I had it in my mind that I wasn't beautiful. so i stopped looking in the mirror so much and when I did i tried picking out the good on my body instead of the bad. it made me feel a whole lot better.

you are beautiful.! And from now on when you look in the mirror you should focus on the good and not the bad. at least give a try, your very beautiful you just don't see it.
