Hey, I am a 18 year old guy and for the last few years I have become extremely distressed and anxious about my appearance. I gaze at myself in the mirror on a daily basis, wondering how anyone could be born so ugly. I feel like I stand out like a sore thumb, that people are staring at my ugliness from every angle. Some people close to me say that I am not ugly but I feel that they are only saying this not to make me feel bad. I stare at the mirror for minutes on end in a kind of trance which I hope will end with me coming to assurance that I am not ugly. But that never happens of course. To get though daily life I continuously say to myself I am not ugly, I am not ugly, just to try and make the best out of my life. But by saying this I think it shows I am in a state of denial, it shows that I am actually ugly but I am trying to sweep the fact under the carpet. Is this true?, am I ugly or am I actually decent looking? Please assist me, I am trying to finally gain a true and honest understanding of myself. True Understanding of my physical appearance is something I have never had in my life and finding the truth, whether it be good or bad, is central to me. Thanks.

Hi iam Peter, when i was like 6 years old this girl my age said i was ugly,and I went home and looked in the mirror and i say how ugly I was and never knew it and for many years i carried that statemnt. I developed an inferiorty complexed that cut into my life big time. But my personalty was such that I listened to everyone, any developed my personalty from that, wheather they were right or not. The truth of the matter I was not ugly at all. So wheather your ugly or handsome if you do not accept yourself and be comfortable being you, then you will never like yourself. And buddy believe most people are not nice looking or have great bodies either. Give yourself a break. You can talk to me anytime.
