how do i feel beautiful about myself? i’m 16 years old & i’m 180 pounds. I live in a place where EVERYONE is skinny & blonde, & i hate it. today i wore a skirt for the first time & did my hair & makeup & i felt really pretty till i stepped outside & looked around me. for some reason, i think this is the reason i’m going to be alone for the rest of my life, i can’t except myself. i actually hate myself & i know plenty of people hate themselves but the majority of everyone are beautiful & just looking for compliments on the other hand…i’m not. i’m nowhere near pretty & i want a boyfriend..but whenever i’m close to having someone i push them away because of the whole body image thing. ): please help me.
God, PLEASE listen to me. This was me at your age and I know it’s hard but there IS someone out there for you. I’m not at all “perfect” but yet I found somebody who when I gave up on relationships accepted me the way I was and fell in love with me the way I am. The body image thing is hard and I’m the same because I hate the way I look a lot but just keep looking and don’t give up because I’m sure there’s bound to be somebody who is willing to help you and stick around through thick and thin. :)
954) I give a part of my heart to every single boy I meet. And then, when they don't think of me in *that way* that part would come running back to me, broken and crying. Stupid, I know. But I can't stop myself.
948) You do know that we can't be together at all? But why do you call every single night. And text every single minute? Maybe its because you're hoping, deep inside, that things will change the same way I do?
