Sending you all the positive energy I can <3 I wish I had more.. I'm dealing with similar difficulties. & depression. In other words, you're not alone
Looks really aren't everything. Sometimes movie stars even can seem "ugly" when they're playing the role of a villain. The most ugly-sounding person that you talked about is that guy who gave you a dirty look. That's highly unattractive to treat another human being that way. I'm really sorry you've been treated that way!
I think you may be right about people avoiding empaths. People are afraid of what's "different" but in the end confidence and kindness always will be some of the most attractive qualities, no matter what.
Hello adda, I was going to reply to you yesterday but your situation got me to remembering things that happened to me and it started to make me upset. I feel better today and I really wanted to send you some positive energy. In short, years ago, I was excluded from my sisters wedding party. I was told by my sister and mother " you do not take a good picture". But I went and sat among the other guests. Just recently a women came in my office to get her mail. She made a point of coming around to face me and make a strange comment about my hair. I did not pay much attention to it. Thank goodness. I just figured out when I was coloring my hair that she was making fun of my roots. So why do they do this...because it makes them feel good. Something I can not understand but it makes them feel good.
This is a wonderful place to get some great advice, hang in there!
adda2300, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. I was once told that I was ugly, all the time I like you had low self esteem and the guy never took a second glance at me. it wasn't until years and years later that I learned that the reason my sister told me I was ugly was that she was jealous of me. she told me I was really pretty in highschool but she told me I was a fat ugly cow because she didn't want me to be happier then she was. I also found out that some of the guys form my high school the reason they wouldn't talk to me is they though I was out of theirleague. being depressed sucks, but at the same time vanity sucks even more.I understand that the message now a days is your have to be beautifulto be accepted in society but that isBull sh*t.If your not happy but bitter that will show,and the natural beauty wont shine.I'm going to share something with you, when I was depressed and hated my life andhow I looked. I started to distance my self from everybody and every thing. then I was doing some historyresearch and I started to get a good feeling in my heart. I then realized that it didn't matter what other peoplesaid to me or about me I decided not to care. I didn't want negative emptions in my life. I wanted positive and good feelings. so I stopped talking to and hanging out with people who were bad influences in my life and foundpeople who were nice and kind. as for thepeople who don't like you its their lose not your, you don't need them anyways. if someone cant love you for you theoh well
I hopeyou nothing but good thoughts and happy days
I agree that beauty is not a curse. Beauty and ugly are both opinions. We all have a right to have an opinion but I think people should keep their negative opinions to themselves. People need to respect others. My beautiful ( on the outside) sister would tell me constantly when we were young how ugly I was. In my opinion, she is ugly, inside and out, for telling me that. She has "issues" yes but that does not give her the right to say negative things.
