So I have a really really really really really really really low self asteam (sorry if my spelling if off)….. And this one person that I was in a fight argument at school today yelled at me and said"well at least I have a good face to look at unlike you!! ", and then I felt like I wanted to cry because I think that way too much as it is already…. So the point of this is to ask you guys to look at my profile picture and tell me (for my age… 15) on a scale 1-10 how attractive I am… I just need a little leverage so I won't feel so bad about myself always wondering if im ugly…. Thanks soooo much if you can help me out!!! Just click on my profile picture…. Thanks!
And in my picture I dont have any makup on at all… and yes I have dark eyelashes... :)
"ugly" is a standard put down people use on women (that or slut, basically). It's kind of remarkable the extent to which insults show deep values in society. Women are valued for being pretty, young, and sexually chaste. So the stock insults for women are about her looks, age, or sexual promiscuity thrown in. (Along with bitch, if they are 'too emotional'). Men by contrast are valued for power, physical courage and what they can accomplish, so the insults thrown at men are about being a wuss, loser, suck or a 'pathetic virgin'.
Nobody should take any of those insults seriously, since they are just the most obvious things thrown out to hurt.
You're a pretty girl. You'll grow to be a very beautiful women. Also your skin is soo nice. You have a pretty face and don't need make up. You need to feel good about yourself. This is important for your mental health which in turn affects your physical health. Just have fun! Be artistic and create! Do things that make you feel good and brighten other people's lives and they will love you so much! Enjoy your youth! When you're older you won't have low self esteem and will look back at how much energy you wasted worrying about what others think about you. When someone tries to insult you just smile at them because you know it's not true and they'll only be weakening themselves.
Hey, you look really cute. You also have a sporty look from what I can see. That's just how I see you. Anyway, you look great. She's just a bitch who's trying to make herself feel cool and you feel low. I bet that she's the only person who ever said something like that to you. And that means you got no reason to trust her on that. There are people who look for someone and something to make fun of. And those are the people you should never listen to. So throw her comment back at her face and stand up straight like a real woman.
I'm sorry, but honestly having a bunch of strangers tell you if you're attractive or not is not going to help your self esteem. You need to look in yourself for that. Figure out what it is about yourself that you don't like and either find the beauty in it or work to fix whatever the problem is
