Ugh.

People always say how beautiful I am and how they wish they had my body, my face, my hair, etc. But I hate myself. I feel ugly even when I'm constantly reassured that I'm not. I am constantly comparing myself to other people and feel like I'm coming up short. Every time I try to dress up to go out I sit down and cry and think about everything that's wrong with my appearance. Sometimes it gets so bad I can't even bring myself to go out to the grocery store. On days like that I just give up and don't bother taking care of myself. I just lay in bed, trying to sleep so I can escape the feelings of self loathing I have.

I am so sorry you feel that way. Since you intellectually know that it is true, that you're not ugly, what is holding you back emotionally from believing it? I hope you can figure out and learn to love yourself, it will make YOU even more attractive in the process. Confidence is very sexy!
