When I was in high school I was constantly being bullied about being "a loser" and fugly. All through 4 years of high school were hell in that regard, and I'm glad it's over, but now when I look in the mirror, I feel so ugly, I feel ugly and unspecial all the time. They picked on me becuase of my hair, my face, my small breasts, EVERYTHING. I know it's stupid, and that I shouldn't care about that anymore, but I'm just convinced I'm ugly... especially when I see pretty girls around me. Guys don't give much attention so I still feel like that ugly loser. Also, people and friends I've met later all have dating anecdotes from high school, except me.
I still feel like the ugly, loser kid. How do I overcome this? I'm so gross... and pathetic...

I can sorta relate to the bullying in elementy and middle school. I moved to America in 3rd grade and I never made any friends. I got left our in everything and was made fun of to no end about being Canadian and stuttering and having a vocal tick. In gym class, the only reason I was even picked last for sports was because the teacher made them pick me. They even harassed me because of my last name, which is Street. In high school, I started to threaten the bullies (granted I have the size and muscle to back up my threats). As for you, the only thing I can think of is that the jackwagons that tormented you were probably insecure becaus of the way their lives were at home, and putting down people like you made them feel better. Terrible reason, I know, but that is true in a lot of cases.
If it makes you feel any better, know that there are so many more people like you that went through the exact same thing that you have.
Also, something that might make you feel better about your self is to eat a lot of friuts and veggies, drink more water and less soda. Even going for a 15 min. jog every day or every other day will have a strong impact on the way you feel about yourself.
