    I feel so ugly. Everyone tells me that I’m beautiful, but I think that they’re lying. Whenever I look in the mirror, I just want to cry because of the way I look. I’m always comparing myself to other girls and I feel like I need people to like me for the good looks. That’s how I feel that I should be accepted. I’m tired of hating myself and wish that I could actually love myself.

    Mood : Ashamed
    • You are beautiful Brooke, you just have to believe in yourself, I know you can do it, you are not alone and i’m here for you if you ever need to talk (hugs)

    • Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If we are always comparing ourselves to something or someone we are not, then we will never feel adequate. Also, media puts out ridiculous images of women and displays them as ’guidelines’ essentially, for others to attempt to follow. In my opinion, this is ridiculous. If I may offer a piece of philosophy; The exterior is not an important factor. The exterior is merely how we display ourselves. Who we are on the inside, is where the true treasure lies. :)
      Physically, you have very cute features. There is nothing to be ashamed of there. What you have, many others would be desperate to acquire. Your presence is very bright, you easily illuminate a room.
      If I may offer a word of advice; Most of us strive for something that we want, or to be something or someone we are not. All this will do is inevitably make us feel unworthy, sad, depressed. The only thing that will truly help is to become focused on one’s self in this aspect. Embrace the features that you do have. You have a very well functioning body that serves you splendidly, and it comes with magnificent features, including eyes that are pleasantly gravitational. You have grown perfectly as intended, and don’t let any other display convince you otherwise.
