I don't think I'm beautiful. At times I think I look pretty, but all it takes is a bad picture of me, seeing gorgeous girls, people pointing out my flaws and I start feeling horrible about myself. I try not to let people's opinions of me affect the way I see myself, but sometimes it's so hard. People tell me I'm perfect, gorgeous, pretty, beautiful, but they don't see what I see. I just don't see myself being good enough.
Anyone ever feel like they are too different to fit in? Ugly, fat, stupid, unwanted, unloved? Not. Not not not. You are all beautiful, skinny, smart, wanted, and loved. No matter what people say. Don't listen to them. If they are talking behind your back, they're behind you for a reason.
I am not sure whether this quote is true of me because I am a female, or because of who I am. I do shut down for a moment when I am extremely hurt because I internally start to wonder if the person harmed me in that way because I am a woman, or because I am not good enough, or both. Mostly, this reaction is pretty constant with my identity.
