ever since I was a child I never saw myself as good looking. iI am now in college and I have this same problem. People tell me all the time that I am good looking..also I had a huge crush on this guy and we went on a couple dates and he told me that I look good in anything I wear. Even though people always compliments me I still feel hideous like I am looking at someone else I am never happy with how I look. I tried to see myself as good looking but usually I say at least I look o.k ...Advice?

I had the same problem growing up. I'm also in college now but I just try to do things to boost my self-esteem. I like dressing nice and putting effort into my appearance which has helped me view myself in a better light.
When I was a kid I was a total tomboy and didn't care about taking the time on my appearance but when I started doing that it made me feel better. And I know this is cliche, but if you look in the mirror every day and tell yourself you're beautiful, it actually does help.
No one can make you feel like you're pretty, you can only do that for yourself. It may take time but just keep finding positives in yourself and don't focus on the negative things. Compliment YOURSELF, that's how you'll start getting a better self-image. Hope this helped:)2
