I'm 15 and I had always felt very self-conscious about the way I look. So one day I decided to post a picture of me and my friend on this site. I wanted to know who was prettier. The vast majority of the people on here said my friend was prettier. Some guys said I wasn't their type, I looked slightly chubby ( I'm 5'4 ,118 pounds), I was ugly.
I felt extremely hurt. I thought I was ugly. I carried it with me for days. But Then I decided I do not have to listen to that insecurity in my head. I should not let other people define who I am. Other people's words, who I don't even know, I'm not going to give them the power over who I am. I have no control over the way I look. After receiving those negative comments, I started embracing my flaws, I stopped wearing makeup. I learned to love myself. Now I'm very content with the way I look and what other people think don't matter to me anymore. Now, I go to that section and try to find beauty in everyone. I don't understand if you have nothing nice to say why say anything at all?
