I am a ballerina


Recommended Posts

I am a ballet dancer. If you don't know it already the world of ballet is full of thin people. They all have nice long legs and beautiful arms. I feel like I will never reach these expectations. I keep watching all these videos full of perfect bodies and that makes me feel depressed.  I love ballet and I want to be a professional dancer.

Hello @electra

Welcome to our community. I'm one of the digital mentors here and I give advice to those who reach out to us.

I'm sorry to hear that you're feeling this way about yourself. I really like the advice from @Blue22031 about how being a ballet dancer doesn't mean you have to change yourself. I'm wondering, are there any videos out there of ballet dancers with body types that are different to being thin? Also, can I ask, what are two or three things that you like about your body or appearance?

      Even tho people and my friends call me pretty,other kids have crushes on me,I still feel ugly.the way I look in selfies is really pretty but with the rear view camera,my face is so,,,, assymetrical and my nose is huge.and bc all my confidence is based on how I look in selfies and the mirror, that's not how other people see me is it?so it's not that I think I look hideous,it's just that I found out that all my confidence was based on how I look in mirrors and selfies but that's not how others see me and that's not how I actually look so my confidence was all fake

      For the past few years, I’ve had problems with my insecurities and bad self esteem. I also feel veryyyy ugly sometimes. Could this be because I’m insecure or just actually have some huge face flaws?  
      I’m sometimes worried about going outside to the shops or for a walk because of my face, so I wear a mask to hide it. 
       
      Does anyone think things like a better haircut or makeup will improve my confidence and how I look, or will the change just be like getting something new but things going back to normal after a while (insecure). 
      thanks

      Hi, it's pretty downing recently specially when someone told you you're ugly and it came from a family member of yours. Ever since highschool I've been teased about my appearance and how much acne I have on my face and they would laugh at me, some would directly tell me that I am ugly. It's making me anxious whenever I like someone, I always think I'm too bad for her and there's always someone good looking who might came in between us and they'll just leave me. It's hard you know, I can't do much of a thing about it. Sometimes I just want to disappear, or reset my life. I can't find my purpose anymore on this world.

      I’m going to a party tonight and I haven’t been taking care of my skin so I don’t feel pretty and I have a burn scar in the middle of my thigh so I just don’t feel comfortable with myself

      I struggle with seeing myself as pretty. I’m really insecure about my chin because all I see are these pretty girls everywhere and then me.
