How do you guys cope with the fact that you aren’t attractive?
Never really bothered me or maybe I was just too young a few years back. I have heard stories of my friends receiving confessions and getting into relationships but it never bothered me and I genuinely am happy for them even though I had none.
Moving into my 20s soon, I guess that’s when I started thinking more about my future, and expectations to settle down eventually. (I know I’m still young, but time really flies)
I know looks isn’t everything, but it is still very important and many circumstances have proven that. Good looking people get better connections, better jobs, befriend people more easily hence higher chance to meet lifelong friends, people are nicer.
Can’t really remember if anyone called me ugly straight to my face nor hinted at it (though I think they are just being nice because none of my friends are that direct) but definitely was called very average by a friend lol.
Never once thought I was ugly too, only as I got older, I literally had a glow down and I don’t get how is it possible like isn’t it puberty suppose to make you better one.
I just find it hard to accept the fact that I don’t look as good as others, others are prettier, better, than I am. It has affected my self esteem so much that I hate looking into the mirror, I hate myself to the point I can’t even look at people and hold conversations anymore because all that is going through my head says ‘you’re ugly’.
And everytime I make eye contact with someone for longer than a second I strongly believe they are looking at my features and thinking how ugly I am. It has affected my chances to make friends, even more so relationships which I of course hope to have one and settle down one day.
Just late night thoughts, so what do you guys do to cope with the fact that you aren’t attractive, maybe even considered ugly by others? How do I lift my head up again to talk to others? I constantly feel like shrinking my presence till I’m non-existent because I’m afraid others would look in my direction and discover how ugly I actually am…
