I hate my life because I'm so ugly.

This is not a joke. I'm really ugly and scrawny looking. My friends make fun of me behind my back and in my face for it, even my own family makes fun of the way I look. I hate it. I often think about killing myself because it's not fair. Everyone else gets to look good, why can't I. If I have to go through my whole life around people who will just stare at me strange, and talk behind my back, whats the point in even being around any more? :(

You're right seniorita_lia. They aren't his friends at all if they would do something like that. Friends don't hurt their friends in no kind of way. I wasn't the best looking person in school and I was talked about by so-called friends. I believed it at first, but then I decided NOT to believe it anymore because I figured out that they were the ones with the problems, that's why they picked on me. they wanted to make themselves feel and look good.

I think you should not take seriously about it. You should be more self-assurance and do better in other things. You must love yourself, then you can be happy.

The real prettyness is inside you, to be ugly external that means nothing, be happy , be full of love and happiness, and I'm sure you are good person, . be sure that somewhere there are people who love you because you are pretty contents inside you; I love you too; don't be sad!

If they do that behind your back then they are not friends. I believe everyone is beautiful. I suffered from bad self esteem problems and was constantly comparing myself to others and I felt really ugly as well. Confidence is the key, but you can get help for low self esteem.

I felt that way also when I was a kid since I will be compared to my sister who is beautiful than I am but I was able to handle it... Just try to feel good about yourself, be confident, do not feel that you are ugly,,,,be good to them despite and inspite of what they are doing, just enjoy what you are doing and in the long run when they will see you happy and not affected, they will stop that... Do now allow anyone to ridicule you and start by feeling good and spread inner beauty too!

Why do you pity yourself so much. Its the way you think that is get you depressed. If you are ugly then what about the many people in the world who don't have eyes? They cant see the beautiful world that you can see. What about the people who don't have limbs? They find it very difficult to do normal work that you can do easily. There are people who are dying because of hunger. You must thank God that he has blessed you with good food, good health and money. Why do you care for things that you don't have. You should always think about things that you have. Life is very beautiful. You have only one life. Use it for some good purpose. Fulfill your dreams. Don't care about others. Just ignore them.

Well, don't say it, you certainly not ugly. I believe that your parents won't think of that way at least. They must love you like a precious baby. Just think of yourself aren't ugly. Some day an ugly duck will become a beauty swan, don't you think so?

I think you are over reactive. Even I am not attractive. But I have never made someone known that I am unsatisfied with myself. I am trying build my reputation by doing good thing, alway making busy myself and avoid doing time pass. If someone makes fun or even laugh you just have to avoid it. If you will react to one person then someone else also will tease you and will make fun of you.

Don't give a damn whatever negative they say about you. If you care what other people thought, your confidence will be lost. Believe me, I've been to that. I used to care whatever they thought of me until I realized that it was so wrong. Learn to accept yourself and always have a positive outlook in life.

It seems you are always focusing on others view which is not only ugly but cruel too. I think you don't have so much faith on GOD thats why you got so much time to think about killing in yourself. It does not take so much courage & time to kill oneself but it needs more courage it keep alive in this world. Do you have it? If yes then step out find out that there are so many people in this world suffering from sorrows and hunger. From which country you are? Are you a man or women? I don't know. I am an Indian man. I too feel the way the same way you feel today couple of years ago. I too have several serious problem. I am too not good looking and have to listen comments. But I have changed my view. I have deep faith on GOD. I care for others & the most important thing is that I want to live to do great things for other. Because I believe LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL. So LIVE & LET LIVE. Stop thinking about your ugliness from today. A person is always beautiful by heart not by his outer look. Believe me. I strongly believe that and my experiences too said that. Don't be so sorry. May GOD bless you.

Don't think of ending your life just because you think you are ugly...It's just a physical aspect that they see in you, what's important is not on the outside but what's inside you...like they say beauty is skin deep...there are many people who judge others by the way others look, because they have so many standards and they are living up to their mundane standards...but I tell you something, God made you unique and in His eyes you were wonderfully made, He loves you not matter what people say, He wants you so much so if ever you feel like nobody likes you, just look up...He's there to bring you comfort and say you still look good and pleasing in His sight if you remain to be beautiful by how you live your life, if you obey Him and always worship Him by being grateful that He give you a wonderful gift called "life".

I don't think your giving us a chance to see you. I like most people don't think there are ugly people on earth. We all have our own unique looks. Some stronger than others. We are all from the same maker. I wish you would not pay them any attention and move on to better friends.

well if they are making fun of you they are jerks, and they arent your real friends. and to me its like love yourself first of all. i sure wouldnt kill myself over this, i belive in the real looks is inside of us. what we look like on the outside dont matter its whats in the inside that does. if there something you can do to change yourself work on it, except things you cant.

Only the culture can dictate ugliness. Look at yourself and embrace your own beauty. SOon confidence will be crawling at your desk.

Looks don't last but your spirit is forever. There are people who don't have classic, typical beauty but their personality and spirit are so beautiful that their appearance is almost irrelevant. I used to place importance on my looks when I was younger but now as I age and looks start to deteriorate my spirit still shines through (I hope) and that is forever.

if your "friends" are making fun of you they are not your friends and shame on your family if they make fun of you too. you are more than what you look like on the inside. are you a good person? do you like who you are? if i may ask, how old are you? if you are very young you can still grow and change. you can make yourself feel better by perhaps getting a new haircut and updating your wardrobe. please do not take your life over what other people think of you. believe me when i tell you that their opinions do not matter. you have so much to live for. why would you kill yourself just because others perceive you as ugly or scrawny. i bet you have so much beauty but you are allowing others to cloud your own judgement of yourself. the heck with them. who cares what they think. love yourself and show some self esteem and others will see it to if that is what matters to you. i am sending you a huge hug. you deserve to live and be happy. and by the way, not everyone else gets to look good. i am very overweight and hate the way i look but i am trying to work on it.
