Chat I Am a Physically Unattractive Female

I have been called many names over my lifetime some of them good, some bad, some about my personality, my appearance, or my achievements. The bad names about my appearance hurt the most. They hit a core about myself that I cannot change; I lost on the genetic lottery and I'm unlikely to be able to ever afford cosmetic surgery.

I've been called: hag, ugly, fugly, butter face, pizza face, tranny, he-she, and dog - just to name a few.

If I were to describe myself to strangers, I'd say I'm an amalgamation of Mick Jagger, Janet Reno, and Sandra Bernhard. My boyfriend of 5+ years thinks I'm exaggerating my un-attractiveness. Maybe it is my BDD. Looking at my pictures from early childhood I can see I used to be cute but puberty was not kind on me.

I hate my body. I hate the mirror. I hate putting on clothes. I hate exercising. And I especially hate how strangers judge me with their stares, their pointing, their hidden laughs, and their disparaging remarks.

I am deeply sorry you must carry these feelings about yourself around. My husband tells me I'm attractive and sometimes I even believe him....but I always believe that HE finds me attractive and that's a good feeling. I wish I had magic words to fix this problem for you (((hugs)))

It is those people that point fingers and make comments that are truly ugly.
You are not ugly in any way.

The people that called you those things are the ugly ones not you.

Please don't let others opinions be the judge of how beautiful you truly are. I suffered with the harsh ridicule from my mother most of my childhood about my looks and it left a lasting scar on me. I learned in therapy that I have the power to let others opinions bother me or not. and thats just what they are is opinions. Hope you feel better!
