I can relate to many of these secrets.
1) I have friends but I always feel so alone
2) I'm afraid to reveal who I love
3) Revealing them can cause chaos to kill me
4) If chaos doesn't kill me I would
5) I'm just....so...alone.

Who cares?
You have your friends, you have your family..
If anyone ever teases you, just plainly say:
"Fuck you, and go find someone who's heart is just as ugly as yours, bitch."

Try not looking in a mirror, but instead looking into yourself. It brings about new perspective. I did, and now I don't need a mirror to feel good about myself.

I don't know what person doesn't feel this way, but that doesn't make it suck any less.

Damn mirrors. :shakefist:
I getcha, I was a HIDEOUS girl from elementary school to middle school. I wore glasses, had frizzy hair and thick, stupid eyebrows. People made fun of me for my "mustache" and "unibrow". The disaster was complete when I got braces. I had friends, but I literally avoided mirrors because they made me realize how insulting I was to other people's eyes. I'm better now but I don't ever feel pretty. It's even kept me from having a boyfriend, and sheesh, I'm almost 18 and I still keep myself from dating because of stupid insecurities. It takes a while to accept yourself, I guess.
Most girls aren't happy with their own appearance anyway.

This makes me sad, because I feel like I wrote it. You aren't alone, whoever you are.

I felt the exact same way.
I promise you one day you'll look at yourself and think "Hey, I look pretty damn good"
And if you yourself can't do it, someone else will make you feel beautiful
I still have my moments when I think I'm horrifically ugly, but then I remember the few people who have said I'm pretty and I cheer up again.
You are beautiful, ST. Don't let you or anyone else tell you otherwise.

Nobody can ever be absolutely perfect.
You've just got to find the positive things and keep ahold of them. Because, if we don't stay positive, we'll just turn into a depressed mess.

I don't believe that anybody can find absolute contentment in themselves because we, as humans, are always striving for better.
However, it helps to your flaws and learning to love them, even if you wish they were different. Nobody will ever be perfect, but we can still find beauty in the imperfections.

You are not alone with this. Many feel the same way you do, and I suppose this is one of those things with self acceptance that you just may have to work on. However, this might help to speed things up a little quicker. If you aren't already, try living a healthy lifestyle; eat right, work out, spend time with friends, etc. When you treat your body well, you will soon find that confidence and satisfaction will follow suit. :)

Don't worry. That day will come. I know. Because I used to feel like you did. And then something changed in me. I realized that even though I may not be perfect, God made me how I am for a reason and he loves me that way. And now I have someone who loves me the way I am, here on earth too. So I promise things will get better, and you will feel content with what you see in yourself.

You're right. That day isn't today. And it might not be ever. Personally, I don't think anyone will ever find contentment in themselves, it isn't our nature, we're shaped for community, to have a purpose, to not look so much at ourselves as the things around us.

But don't despair because you are not content. Instead, ask yourself what you are lacking. What are you lacking? Is your answer really the root of it? Could you say "I would be absolutely content if I had ___________." ? Think about it...explore who you are, who you want to be, who you are to those around you. But remember that inward pursuits will take you further...inward.
And pursue your purpose. Because that will take you places you've only ever dreamed of (:

:hug: and may the best of your past be the worst of your future [=

I think this goes for everyone out there; everyone has at least once thought that they weren't attractive enough or simply not good enough. I, for one, definitely have. For the longest time, I avoided mirrors just so I didn't have to look at myself. And when I did look at myself, I hated how I looked. I'm finally feeling better about myself though, and all it really took was a slight change in appearance! You'd never guess how something as trivial as a haircut can boost a person's self esteem!
So to all you folks out there, have faith! There can and will be a day when you can look in the mirror and love what you see; all you have to do is believe and try to find a look that's right for you!

PS - to those of you suffering from acne, try applying lemon juice to your skin before you sleep; this worked wonders for me (it might sting and itch a little though, you might want to dilute it with a bit of water). You can just Google "lemon juice acne" or something like that to find instructions. Everyone's skin is different though, so be cautious if you decide to try this. Good luck!

I thought that day would never come, but it finally has. In the last few months, I've grown more than I have in years, and I can look in the mirror without one negative thought coming to my head.

It's the best feeling I've ever felt in my entire life, and I just pray I don't relapse back into self doubt.

That day is not today indeed; I have to cut my hair, that's all. :lol: I got used to myself; I won't be different. By the way, I'm not hearing every time that I'm ugly - to be honest, more often I hear I'm not ugly, this has to mean something... Worrying about the look is just unnecessary, it destroys...

In all honesty, I dread that day. I fear the day that I look at myself and say, "Yeah, this looks great. Good job!"

Because that will only cripple me.

I look at myself morning and say, "Dude, you said you'd make yourself better than this. Get to it!" I look at myself in the mirror and think, "Wow, this sucks. I can do way better. Why am I selling myself short?"

Basically, if I were to look at myself in the mirror and be content, I would stop and decay. And that is worse than any amount of self-hate I could give myself over my image.

secrets have a cost each time it takes a piece of your soul till there is nothing left but a fragile shell that will break at the slightest breeze. one day we will all die, we will meet death face to face, beg, plead, and demand to go back. others will welcome him with open arms with tears of relief streaming down their checks. some will never look upon deaths face, will never turn around to see if death is there, but we know is his presence can be felt, and for some of us we won't look back. we don't want to look back for there is nothing left to look at from that point on. so forward we walk toward whatever destiny awaits us, for death will be a gift that shall be given to us all in due time and it is a gift we will all embrace. both the willing and unwilling.

You are not a long. Every time I look in the mirror, I want to shatter my reflection to pieces.. There isn't a day where I am actually content with how I look.

Sadly, you'll always find something in the mirror, that isn't absolutely perfect. There will always be a little flaw.

Try to smile at your mirror image and try to find a thing you like about it. May it be as small as it is.
This method worked well for me, I hope it will bring happiness to you too. :hug:
