Female, 16 years old, Outside U.S.
I think I’m ugly and I have zero confidence, and whenever I try to accept myself and finally start loving myself, someone would appear and say I’m ugly. This started to affect my personality and I became a quiet person because I don’t even feel like talking to other people because I’m afraid of what they’re going to think of me.

Thank you so much for contacting us. It was really brave of you. I can’t even imagine how hard it must be feeling so uncomfortable and judged. I can’t even believe what people are saying to you, it is so rude! Having to deal with your own feelings on top of it must feel impossible. It is so amazing that you started to love yourself, which I am sure took a lot of work, and I can’t even imagine what it must be like after someone says something so cruel. I think that it would be really helpful to talk to someone, like a parent, extended family member, teacher, coach, or school counselor.
I think that you would really like this Tumblr page internal-acceptance-movement.
I also wanted to give you a resource for bullying, because what people are saying to you is totally not okay. (https://www.
I am not sure exactly where you are located, but I want you to have a hotline to talk to in your area. I have a list of great hotlines ( http://www.iasp.info/
