Ugly and ugliness
Posted 8/4/15 , edited 8/25/15
Why do so many obviously not ugly people think they're ugly? It seems to be a pandemic, of younger people especially, so wrapped up in Botox that they forget ugliness is a rare, super rare thing. You may not be drop dead gorgeous, but there's a misuse of the word "ugly" for sure.

There's a such thing as more attractive, yes. But just because someone looks better than you doesn't mean you're ugly. I see it on sites where people get judged for their appearance. The comments don't help, but that's the Internet I guess.



I also think personalities are uglier than appearances




What do you all think?

If someone acts ugly, and has an ugly personality (like they are just plain mean) I would consider them ugly, but I would never judge someone based off of looks, as that can change.

People who think they're ugly (when they're actually average looking) tend to have low self-esteem.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, anyway. It's all a matter of personal preference. If you think you're ugly, you probably are ugly by someone's standards. But there will also be someone who finds your looks attractive.

Yeah. It's kinda what everyone expects now a days. Like, everyone can be a supermodel with a little nip and tuck. As a society, we're really obsessed over our looks and always comparing ourselves with others. I dunno.

But I do agree, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And confidence is beauty.

I have pretty low self-esteem but that's because I grew up being told that I was ugly by my peers. I took what they said to heart, and I still have a hard time accepting my face for what it is. I think the biggest thing is finding that someone to boost your ego and raise your confidence. I mean, isn't there a thing where everyone says "Oh YOU'RE GLOWING WITH BEAUTY TODAY," when you get into a relationship? I think your self-confidence has a lot to do with beauty.

Nothing wrong with ugliness and ugly. You can feel good about being ugly. Look at all them good looking folks? Pah! I'm uglier than them. Oh joy! They could never beat me at ugliness. I'm the only ugly in town. Oh yeah, check me. Oh you like me? Good! I'm so ugly, all you less ugly people want a piece of me. Oh i make you look better? Well, that's awesome. Now walk with me and see how ugly can still over power your good looks. I'm so moneysupermarket .

Because people tell them they are, in various ways. though, not just "you're ugly".
And because of that, they get low self-esteem then start to feel/think they're ugly.

That's why I think I was ugly. I mean, I never see myself anywhere, since I grew up liking mostly nerdy stuff, around white folk/people who look nothing like me & getting rejected into my own communities simply bc I looked different, yeah I started to think that. My body type doesn't help with it either. I had tons baby fat & was rather chubby for a while, until my body develop its curves (finally lol).
Even if my families/friends would tell me I look pretty, I still wouldn't believe them tbh.

I'm gorgeous.



However when I went through the depression and the stupid cyber bullying incident I was really down on myself. Cried whenever I looked in mirrors, that whole deal. I thought of doing things I'm not proud of. Fell into a vicious cycle with my condition.

Not anymore. It's all confidence and sometimes it takes having it all knocked down to build it back up.

Doesn't matter how ugly you think you are for one reason or another. Change how you think of yourself. The only acceptance you need is your own. Everything else will find its place.

Because the beauty industry is a multi billion dollar per year industry. If you're not convinced that you're ugly and that make-up, a new wardrobe and cosmetic medical procedures can make you more attractive, these industries won't thrive.

It is, therefore, in the best interest of the media to convince you that you are not only ugly, but that you can become more attractive to the opposite sex if you just buy that new cream or get that nip/tuck.

It is in your best interest to love yourself for who you are. Easier said than done, yes, but the sooner you can embrace yourself for all your imperfections and quirkiness, the happier and more confident you'll be.

And richer. Especially if you're a woman. Cosmetics and purses can really add up.

Because the United States media has a way of setting standards for what is good looking. Ironically these same people have the worst kind of personalities.

Trying too much can be ugly. Just accepting who you are is good enough. The worst is when people think that all the celebrities are the standard of beauty.

Though, I am absolutely flawless

Social Media is a big part of it I suppose.

It's a matter of self confidence. Older people have the same problem they just don't voice it to other people

Damnit, i forgot that pride is a beautiful thing. Right, might get rid of that too... lol.
But then too much pride can be ugly. Must keep it.
