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

Hey @vidu

Welcome :). I'm one of the digital mentors here and I basically give advice and support to those who reach out to us.

I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling good about yourself despite other people calling you pretty and having crushes on you. You're definitely not alone in feeling like this; there are so many people out there who don't feel good about their appearance even though others tell them that they look great. I'm wondering, why do you think you feel like this about yourself at the moment? Also, how long have you been feeling like this for?

Ever since I saw this trend on tiktok about your face's symmetry.so basically,you just flip the camera and it shows you what you really look like,that started one or two months ago?but since my confidence was really really high,it didn't bother me a lot.but I started feeling ugly from maybe last week?but I think I can make it better by myself by getting off of tiktok and pinterest for a while.

Hey Vidu,

Ahh, okay. Yeah, social media can be really harmful to our self-esteem, and it's good that you realise that. I think that having some time off will also be good for you. Maybe you could take a couple of weeks off and see how you feel? It's good that you only started feeling like this in the past week, because the longer you feel this way, they harder it can be to work through it, so it's great that you've only been feeling like this for a short amount of time. 

Also, I'm wondering, could you tell me two or three things that you do like about your appearance? I think that for everyone, there is something that they don't like about the way they look, and it can be good to remind yourself of what you do find attractive to help shift your mindset towards a more positive one.

Speak soon.

      hey guys! hope your well and okay if not here's some hugs.
      I have always judged myself and compared myself to others which isn't bad because I was looking and wanting to be a model etc. But, I am completely confused, am I pretty? I always get stares and looks when I walk through town with my little girl and men especially follow me and really scare me, is that normal? I am trying to work out my gender if i am bi or lesbian I am either of those but trying to figure out which one I am as it's confusing me.
      I tell myself oh your ugly your disgusting and all that due to previously being raped and abused. It left scars and it hurts even talking about this but i need to open up and explain why i am judging my own body and if i can ever love myself again or ill be staying and hating my looks and body. I find it difficult to open up about the rape and if im at fault due to being told you should of pushed him of you and defended yourself, but that person is only trying to hurt me. Is it stupid i got bullied for being 'thin' and being small? I got bullied all through yr 7-9 because I was too skinny and was flat chested. boys kept bullying me calling me flat chested which wasn't nice. Please if you read this be kind. hugs
      I also compared myself to other girls who were getting attention from boys because they weren't thin like me and i kept getting bullied and told to put weight on to be like them even though it was hard for me to cope with as i had life issues. I am just wanting to tell my story as i need to be heard that bullying someone for their size or weight isnt allowed it's body shaming and it isnt right so if you want to pick on someone then dont say anything think treat them how you would want to be treated. bullying and body shaming is NOT allowed dont DO it

      Sometimes I look in the mirror and am disgusted by what I see. My friends and family always unknowingly invalidate how I feel. Am I a drama queen?

      I feel that I am worthless and ugly, I am a student but my results are bad and even my friend say I am ugly and dumb. I have very low self esteem and feel bad about myself even though I try not to. advice pls

      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

      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.
