What am I going to do?

I have this desperate feeling that I want to be pretty, I'm always negative about my self when I see other girls I think how come I'm not as pretty as them. I try to be pretty by putting make up on, but I'm just not good enough. Any advice?

Hormones. It's a monster that consumes teens. Once you start to mature, you'll understand that those girls who were pretty and hog on the makeup are only good for fitting into society but not the economy. Looks are just something society says you have to have, but would you really want to be something different just to be branded normal? Stay true to yourself and you'll soon see that beauty isn't balanced by how much foundation, blush, or eyeliner they pack on but by how good and true your heart and mind is.

Stop comparing yourself to other girls first off. Second, you don't need make up to look pretty. Thirdly, tell your self in the mirror everyday that you are a beautiful person inside and out. And really mean it, because I'm sure it's probably true. :)

Always remember that you are beautiful no matter what anyone says. I have struggled with insecurity issues my entire life, but now I'm learning to accept and respect myself for who I am. Remember, God made you an original, so be you, there is no copy. Don't let the persona of anyone intimidate you into thinking you aren't good enough. Hope this helps :)

You know what, you're right I shouldn't feel insecure but one time someone told me I was ugly and that ruined my whole day

That's a horrible and rude thing to say. Believe me, I've been the victim of that before. But the one thing I have to remember is, should I let what other people say define who I really am? Think about it. You'll find out eventually who's opinion really matters.

You're right I shouldn't care. But what I didn't like was when a person said that I wasn't pretty to my face.

Too bad "sticks and stones" isn't true, words do hurt. The main point is, did you say something back? If you did, I hope it wasn't mean. Two wrongs don't make a right. If you didn't, you have some great self control. I wish the best to you in your situation!

I didn't say anything to that person I just ignored that person and told my friends. Thanks.

Hopefully your personality is good. Believe it or not, majority of guys like compatible personalities. I dont wear make up personally I dont like it. If you appear confident it'll make you "Attractive." "Just be yourself. " Change is sometimes good for your health if you feel thats an issue. Dont think about that too much, youll drive yourself insane. Be comfortable with yourself. it takes time.

I'm pretty sure my personality is good because I'm nice to everyone and I don't get envy of anyone.

I am glad someone understands this...looks are not as important as personality.

First of all sweetie you are good enough. You don't have to look like the girls in the magazines or even girls from your school. You are beautiful the way that you are just like everyone else is. be unique. You don't have to be anyone else. Be confident in who you are and embrace your natural beauty. Sure makeup can be fun and excited. But makeup doesn't make you beautiful it just enhances your natural beauty. Just remember that you are beautiful and you don't have to look like anyone else just be yourself :)

You can start by displaying your picture here...let us see what you look like. I am guessing you are attractive enough already, don't compare yourself to others. Good enough...really? Build up your self esteem you will find that guys find confidence just as sexy as good looks.

Thanks but I'm not allowed to post my pic here

Why not? Is it against the rules? I don't understand.

Probably because she's a hormonal tween and is afraid that she'll get caught on the internet posting pictures of herself. I sort of already went through that phase so I sorta know how she feels...except that phase ended quickly for me.

No actually my mom won't let me

It's ok, you don't have to. Read what everyone has written to you here, it should help you feel better about yourself.

i feel that way too! i especially get a little jealous or insecure when all the guys say that the girls are hot! its like what about me! im like you, i try to put on makeup and dress cute but it seems like the guys wont budge. but when the other " hot" girls are seen then everybody just admires. it makes me wonder, because some people say that im reallly pretty and some people dont even look at me so ... my advice is to not try as hard to be so perfect but dont look like a slob. do like me and admire the things you do have that people find attractive and your young so your going to be even better looking when you get older
