Every time I look in the mirror for too long I start crying because I think my body is really ugly. I have that stupid "hour glass" figure and it doesn't help that I'm short. I'm 5'4 and 130 pounds. I play water polo so I'm in shape, but whenever I really look at myself I just see this ugly figure. Granted I'm not even an adult yet, but I have a feeling I'll be this shape for the rest of my life. And I think hour glass is a pretty shape on other girls, but I look like I'm trying too hard to be a woman or something. Even looking at my legs for too long makes me cry, because all I see is fat and just uglyness. There's really nothing I like about my body, not even my hair or eyes. I'm hoping that I'll grow taller because I think if I'm taller I'll look better, but for now all I can do is just hide my body in baggy clothes. It doesn't help that everyone I know is into fashion. I'd love to dress pretty and like a girl, but my body is too developed and curvy. I'd rather be tall and super skinny and pretty like everyone else, but I'm not and I don't know how to get there. I work out and look the same. I don't work out and I look the same. I don't know what to do and I want to look pretty. Does anyone have tips on how I can look for now while I'm still growing, or how I can change myself if that's even possible? Thanks for the help.

"because all I see is fat and just uglyness."
Yes, you're a woman. That's what most (if not all) women see when they look in the mirror.
I doubt it will help, but if you were suddenly tall and skinny tomorrow, you'd still be bawling your eyes out over something else.
All I can tell you is, no one else sees the "ugly" you that you see.
That is all in your mind.
The version of you that the rest of us see, is vastly different.
The other thing is this - no matter what your body shape, there's a bunch of guys out there who think *that* body type is the perfect one.
You can't change your body - that's genetics. But you can (with a lot of effort) change the way you perceive your body, and how you feel about it. I'd suggest that you work on that.5
