Should I take it seriously when a person calls me ugly?

I tied my hair up today for the first time for school because it was a very hot day. My friend said it looked nice so I went into lesson with it in. A boy that I know looked at me and said " ugh you've tied your hair up it looks well ugly" . I just went completely red because I have never been called any sort of name before and it was a bit of a shock coming from a boy I knew. Why would he say that in front of the class and why would they all laugh?

  • Awe, don't worry girl. I have a SUPER hairy neck and spent my whole life worrying about it. I joined a kickboxing class and one day was like... you know what? Why do I have to suffer sweating my ass off with my hair getting drenched just because I don't want to tie my hair up. No, fuck these people if they don't like the way I look they don't have to stare and that's their problem. I'm sure you're a beautiful girl and if you like your hair tied up then you do what you think looks good. All of those assholes in school never grow up and in real life they still act like it's highschool. Don't sweat it and ignore them. Maybe he likes you or something. No one likes suffering in the heat. If you're still self conscious about it then google other cute ways to wear your hair that will still keep you cool.

    • Thank you for your comment 😀 It was nice to read and I am so happy you went for it because it makes me want to do the same 😊

    • Awesome! :) glad I could help. Life is too short to worry about what others think and if I could go back in time and tell my younger self.. Well, it would have saved a lot of valuable wasted energy and worry! Confidence is the way to go :) take care.

  • He probably wanted attention for himself at your expense. The fact is that those looks things are relative, everyone will have different opinions about the same thing. So, in a nutshell, be yourself, if you worry too much about what people say it'll drive you crazy.

  • No, don't ever take someones opinion too seriously. It's only 1 person's opinion and everyone has one and they differ. He shouldn't have said it in front of the class but that's a teenage boy for you (doesn't think or care how it might make you feel). The others laugh because most can't believe he said it. Doesn't mean they agree.

  • You shouldn't take anything mean that is said to you seriously. People are assholes and tend to speak when they're in no position to speak, so don't take anything they say to heart. Not caring about what others think and only pleasing yourself is what matters.

  • Well if he has the mind of a middle schooler ( which is most likely the case) he probably thought you looked pretty and so he insulted you to show it. Decide for yourself how you look, but if your going to take an outside perspective your girl friend more likely to be honest with you.

  • Ugly and beautiful is up to a specific person. May be for him your hair was really ugly, but for other people it will definitely be beautiful. So, don't ever get sad about the opinion of only one person.

  • Maybe he was just joking? He could've just said a really asshole remark. I wouldn't take it personal. You should've said something back like "well at least i can take it down, your face though, that's just ugly all the time" and left.
