I get it. I know i'm supposed to say that everyone's aesthetically beautiful in they're own way but it doesn't really matter; when I was younger I had an extremely bad skin condition and was badly bullied as well...all i wanted to do is be beautiful. I still do to be honest but I realized it wan't about being beautiful I thought that if I was beautiful or normal atleast then people would love me they would be nice to me life would be easier that's the thing about beauty is everyone wants it and they stress way too much over it but it's not even about being beautiful its about love. People think that if your beautiful or skinny or anything else people will love you or you'll get a boyfriend or get that movie part and the ironic thing is that's completely false. Nobody will ever love or like you for being beautiful in fact people like you more for being ugly and being ok with it. Besides there are alot of beautiful people in this world who have nothing going on in the inside. They are incomplete people who will never get far in life because in truth beauty is a dime a dozen but character is worth more than gold. Its what counts and its what makes a person beautiful. If you want to be beautiful stop focusing on your looks because it will all fade and there will always be more beautiful people just be happy and a good person and help those beautiful sad people :) good luck and I wish you the world!
I agree with LilLilly completely. You're beautiful in your own way, don't ever think that you're not. It what's on the inside that counts, not the inside. A girl with an ugly personality isn't as nice as a girl with a pretty one. I'll tell you right now: I don't use a lot makeup, I don't ever plan on using heavy amounts because I don't like that, because I learned you don't need makeup to be beautiful. You're beautiful, and don't you forget that <3
Here's the thing, beauty comes from inside. First and foremost. I live in NYC, and I see what most men would call "gorgeous" women pretty much everywhere I go, especially in Manhattan. But what ACTUALLY makes a woman beautiful is who she is on the inside. I see these women walking around with trendy outfits, their hair done just right, and absolutely empty souls. That "I'm better than you" attitude, which to me, makes them absolutely hideous.Now of course, that's only one side of the coin.What I'm getting at is that we all have insecurities, one way or another. I'm sure you're not an ugly person, but it's clear you feel that way. Which is actually fine. Some of the most beautiful people I have the pleasure of knowing aren't even aware of it. It's that humble state of mind that makes them that much more precious.We are our own worst critics. It's natural. Without that aspect, we would never grow. Keep in mind that what you feel now will not be forever.I feel like I'm bouncing around all over the place here. But all in all, this is what I'm saying. Beauty is subjective. Some people like a lot of make up. Some people don't. Some people like a brunettes. Some people don't. You can't please everyone. But you CAN please yourself. And that's where you want to start. Without being happy with yourself first, you can't possibly hope to be truthfully happy with anyone else. It won't happen in a day, or a week, or a month, or maybe even a year. But it will happen if you keep trying.Smile.It's a beautiful thing.
I wear glasses and the funny thing is, is that when I take them off. I can't see people's faces, I don't know if they're judging me or not. Think about it this way I would rather have a person who was perceived ugly cure cancer than a person who was perceived as "hot." Sounds harsh but statistically it's favorable. So I challenge you to change your perspective on what beauty actually means. When I think of true beauty I see the people who care. The people who are willing to sacrifice their own lives in exchange for a complete stranger's. That is true beauty.
Thank you, everyone <3
