I’ve tried doing this before. It only works until I see a pretty girl In my class or outside.
I shall tell you the secret to happiness. You are the only person you need to make happy, no one else matters, just you.If they don't like it tough shit. You should really apply that rule to your life once you get out on your own. It's rather hard to do, when you still live at home, I'm sure you know how parents are.

I moved cities and gained a lot of weight that somehow decided to stay in my face. I tried to work out /eat properly, starve myself. None of it is working. I’m tired of being friendless, not having guys my age like me instead of old creepy guys staring at me on the street. I hate not being able to take pictures when I go special places (travelling overseas.) my pimple scars show, my facial asymmetry, my uneven eyebrows, my full lips (which are slanted in pictures bc one side is fuller than the other), my nose which is SMALL but my nostrils go out instead of going in (if u know what I mean)
Stick to working out and eating properly. However, do not half arse it by giving up after a month or so. Is going to be a long journey but once you accomplished your goal, is going to feel incredible.I am pretty sure you are not the female version of the Elephant Man. Do not give up by being so hard on yourself. Try home remedies for the scars, groom yourself, take care of yourself, love yourself and MAINTAIN YOURSELF. Just put a little bit of effort and you will see a difference.
I literally spent so much money and time on treatment, nothing works. And what makes everything worse is how people compliment me & tell me I’m pretty, when I know inside that I’m not.
I’ve been telling myself that for years.
I does, but not until after you're 18.
I haven’t been able to stop crying tonight
Do you have any friends that you can talk to? If not, you could try your school counselor, or someone in your church?
Not really. I tried talking to my counsellor, she doesn’t really know how to help. I don’t have the greatest friends to be honest
Are there any activities in your area that you could join? After a while, you'd make friends. Are you nerdy at all?
If you don't mind me asking, is there actually anything wrong with your nose, etc, or is it more just being a teenager?
Nobody says that there’s anything wrong with my nose. I just hate it
I’m not nerdy haha.
I feel like it doesn’t shut my face
How can I put this? Looks are important. Anyone who says that they aren't is lying, but once you become an adult, they start becoming less important than what KIND of person you are. Looks are good for that initial "oh wow! Look at him or her" but research has shown over and over that it means much less when it comes to actually getting dates and having a relationship.The biggest attribute that gets dates and relationships is flirting and being approachable, and this is something you can LEARN to do.
I know. But at the same time, strangers compliment me all the time. I wanna be able to see the beauty they see in me. But I just can’t. It’s impossible
Who is it that tells you you're beautiful? Older women don't count, but medium and older men don't lie, they just don't say anything at all. In the end though, you're going to have to accept that your looks, good or bad, do not define you or your worth as a person or a woman.
Medium/older men (late 20’s to 40s), women in their 20’s, most girls my age, uhhh guys my age sometimes stare but don’t say much.
So, basically you are beautiful, whether you choose to accept that reality or not. BUT here's the thing, you need to accept yourself even though you're beautiful. You have to consider that something "additional" NOT who you are.Could you ask your parents about some short term therapy?
In many cases it's covered by insurance. You wouldn't go for a long time, just long enough to help you accept yourself.
My mother thinks it’s a phase and that I’ll get over it
