Not Always.

Up until Junior year of high school I was positive that I was a 2 or so. I avoided looking at my reflection. I received almost no attention from females whatsoever. I just figured it was because of the way I looked.

Fast forward a couple of years.

Sometimes, I'm both perfectly comfortable with, and confident in, the way I look. Other times I think that I'm hideous. I guess you could say it comes in waves. I'm still trying to figure out what exactly brings these thoughts on. But even when I'm feeling good about myself I still don't like looking at myself in the mirror.

I've told this to a couple of my friends and they tell me 'You aren't ugly'.

Thanks. But that doesn't really mean much to me. I mean, what else are they going to say? 'Ya, you didn't just get hit with the ugly stick, you got hit with the whole damn tree.' Hahaha

My suggestion is 'if you are going to get hit by a whole damn tree, cut it with a f*cking chainsaw'.

If you are fat, lose some weights.
if you are thin, gain some weights.
if you are dirty, clean yourself.
if you have a bad hair, go to barber or salon.
if you have a bad teeth, go to dentist.
if you have acne problem, go to dermatologist.

Everything is simple, only your mind makes it looks complicated.

I feel like that too. I know I'm not ugly but I just don't want to look at myself in the mirror either. But beauty lies beyond what the mirror can see. So i'll try to use my own advice.
Everytime I look in the mirror I notice the pimples on my forehead or my nose I just feel like that's what everyone sees when they look at me. But beauty lies on the inside not
Having one of those day look up Mandisa "True Beauty" or "The Definiton of Me" on youtube

I feel that way sometimes. xx

uh uh uh

i think you're beautiful. inside and out.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
i also know that that makes no difference to you. but i thought id say it anyway. <br />
<br />
<br />

I'd bone you, dudie.

I know the feeling man. Just try to remember most people don't notice half the things you do when you're down on yourself. :)

What....<br />
<br />
It's your comments and wit that keep me coming around...<br />
Plenty of friends here bud!<br />

I don't like "you aren't ugly" ... it's like "you look fine." So... thanks? I think you look good. Which is way better than fine. :)

hahaha ok if u say so .. but thats how i see it .

"If only I was as good looking as I am funny." You definitely are. ;)

people really need to find out whats real beauty .<br />
beauty lies in the smallest things or biggest . even nothing is beautiful . you are beautiful and i love you because of it . there is so much in life than looks =] just smile and keep walking you have so much to live for .

Shush. With that sense of humor, you can't be too terribly hideous.

'Ya, you didn't just get hit with the ugly stick, you got hit with the whole damn tree.' <br />

That made me laugh. A lot.

mine comes in waves too. Sometimes I think I look fine- even really good at times, and other times I hate how I look and don't want to be seen by anyone. I'm not sure why my perception of myself changes so dramatically. It's gotten to the point where it's good more than it is horrible, but I still have those times...<br />

I've never gotten much male attention, and when I was younger I thought it was because of my looks. But I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that 1. I can be pretty oblivious, so I wouldn't see it if it happened (people have told me it has), and 2. I don't really want it anyways, at least not for how I look.
