Well We Can't All Be Beautiful I GuessWhy is it so much easier to recognise your negative traits? And when you're focusing on them, no matter how many people tell you differently, you just cant see past them. It's all very well to say beauty is in the eye of the beholder- but what happens when all of the beholders have the same ideas about beauty?
I've always had a problem with self-esteem; having an anxiety disorder for 18 out of 21 years didn't really help that! I've only recently begun to recover from some of the negative thought processes I was living with, but I still know I could never think of myself as beautiful. Let's face it - some of us are just not blessed with natural beauty. However, I guess what I can work on is not letting this define me -not buying into the idea that just because I'm not attractive I'm worthless. It's very easy to fall into that trap though, in a society where beauty seems to be esteemed above all else.
