Love and feeling beautiful

I feel most attractive when I'm loved by someone I love and I know it. It's not just about being loved that makes me feel attractive...part of it is the act of loving. Maybe it just gets my attention off my own insecurities and more tuned into the other person. To love is also a beautiful thing, and simply loving might radiate this energy It just takes me out of my world and transcends appearances and everything else. Love makes me feel beautiful both on the inside and on the outside.

Though I do dip into self consciousness from time to time...it's only human. My confidence wavers more when I'm single or in limbo and I get more nit picky about my looks at those times. Times like now. I feel vain staring in the mirror and fussing so much about my appearance but that's what I've been doing now. I want to feel beautiful tonight and exude with confidence and maybe that confidence is one thing that makes me feel better and the energy somehow makes me look better. People sometimes say I'm attractive or pretty or whatever, but it takes something more for me to actually believe it myself. It takes either love or something within myself to make it true. I want to believe it.

Definitely. I tend not to trust other people just in this area because it's often just flattery or false reassurance or some one being nice. Even if they do mean it sincerely, it's not the same same as me believing it unless you really really trust the other person...in that case it can be very convincing

Exactly! :) Other people believing in me sometimes helps just a little but ultimately I need to believe in me for it to feel real

You took the words right out of my mouth! I want to believe it, and people tell me I'm pretty or whatever, but still...just because others might think it...doesn't necessarily mean I believe it =/.
