I was told recently by a complete stranger, that i was ugly. Now you must understand this is out of the blue.. while waiting to buy a book at a local store, and and i smile ( out of kindness) to a gentleman in front of me in line. He quickly ( and loudly) said... "Oh dont even bother. I am not even close to being interested in you.. in fact you are one of the ugliest girls i have ever seen" I didnt know how to react.... Am i really that ugly? Maybe i have seen myself So much... i am desensitized to it.... could someone please just tell me? I know i am not perfect... but am i that bad?
Hi honey! You are not ugly at all!!!! You are beautiful!
Just a few words i'm gonna tell you. Myabe it will help.
First of all as other people said in here "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" .... different people have different ideas about beauty.
You have amazing eyes and beautiful smile. And so nice hair - blond and shiny.
Next thing i'm gonna say and i don't do it because i think you need it, i'm only saying it to help - if you feel like hiding small imperfections of the face use makeup tricks. There are hundreds videos over the internet where you can learn from. Women do it everyday..... they make eyes look bigger or smaller, lips, nose, they even change shape of the face. And only with makeup.
Another thing. You can really apreciate someone's beauty by their personality. I mean ... people who i found stunning at first litteraly turned ugly in my eyes because of their behavior. And people who didn't seem too cute turned out beautiful in my eyes. :)) I once met one guy ...he was so ugly that he was funny. Kids on the beach were pointing fingers at him. Met him on a vacation. Girl!!! i ran away from home to meet him! He had such a great personality that i needed to see him again. Every time he comes on my mind it makes me smile. Hopefully i will meet him again someday.
I know it's easy to loose confidence. I have moments i really hate myself. I could talk for hours about how much i have lost in my life because of lack of confidence. Because i let others tell me how i am instead of looking in the mirror and in my heart. And i still do...But we gotta keep heads up. It is impossible for everyone to like the same things and people. Just think of it - if it was so, the world would have been a very boring place.
SMILE!!! You have a beautiful one! :)))
One weird thing: this is one of my most apreciated pictures i ever posted. It looks ok to many people ....in reality i was crying when this picture was taken. And my heart was broken in many tiny pieces.
This might sound cliche, but I think whether or not you're 'ugly' is determined by how you act, feel and think--especially about yourself.
Preferences in physical appearances differ from person to person, so while someone might be gorgeous to some, to others (s)he might just not be their cup of tea.
In highschool, I hear all sorts of girls nitpick about their bodies, calling themselves fat or ugly. I look at these girls and I just see these lovely, budding women who need to feel more comfortable with who they are. But then I see the girls who spread the rumors and feel the need to put others down, be it about their body or something else. I don't find this sort of person attractive at all.
Above all else, it's who you are that really boils you down into something beautiful. Confidence and a belief in yourself can go a long way. Sure it may be hard (lord, I know it's hard) but it's true what they say in most cases; confidence is sexy. Even if you're not the most confident person in the world, it's your quirks and flaws that are going to make people love you.
Simply on the outside, I think you're lovely.
On the inside... well that's just for you to decide.
Girl please take a look again because you are very cute. Some people just have to be that way to make themselves feel better about themselves. Keep smiling because you have one of those "make ya feel better" when you smile.
The person who told you that is ugly. You are a very beautiful person, don't ever let someone think otherwise. Some people just don't have any kind of compassion have huge issues, belittling other people makes them feel better about their miserable self.
Lots of hugs.
We are all made in God's Image and God's judgement is the only one that matters. In my opinion, what that man said to you could be imterpreted by calling God the same. Imagine his response or reaction if you gave him that response.
The question that comes to my mind right now:
You made this comment 5 years ago; what can you tell us about yourself today?
Girl F* what he says he probably looked bad himself and only criticized you cause he has low self esteem and did it to make himself feel better. Your not ugly!! I have seen, much, much, much much worse! Don't let people like him a total stranger get to you his opinion dont matter!
There is a saying I just absolutely love and it goes like this....
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, and Love lies within ones heart, IF you look hard enough, You may find both!!
I believe God blessed each and everyone of us with beauty, wether it be on the outside or on the inside, take pride in yourself and don't worry about what others say, if you see the beauty within yourself, others will see it as well!
