I’m so ugly
I feel I’m so ugly and fat! How can I become more attractive? How can I make my looks more appealing?
Folks of all ages spend countless of dollars daily on buying cosmetic solutions to improve their looks. We tend to worry a lot about how we look like. How often do you hear someone say one of the followings?
- I’m so ugly
- I’m not attractive
- I’m fat
- I don’t like my face
A recent study shows that over 75% of girls think they are ugly and have poor body image. If you look around you, you will find that many people might not look good by our society’s standard, but feel very attractive, have many friends, and love themselves. Why is it that some tend to love the way they look while others do not? Does it really have to do with looks?
The answer might surprise you, but of course NO. It has to do with the beliefs that you have accumulated about yourself since childhood. If your parents, family and friends kept telling directly or indirectly that you are ugly, fat, or your body doesn’t look right over and over, then this has become a belief for you if you accepted it.

The impact of feeling “I’m so ugly” on your life
People who stay preoccupied with their looks, experience excessive stress and anxiety. They spend countless of hours daily to find solutions to their perceived dilemma. Since poor self image is very common for adolescents and young adults, many also tend to avoid going to school and may end up depressed.
Is during plastic surgery the solution?
Many folks who have poor body image consider doing plastic surgery. However, research shows that the majority of people who have done plastic surgeries to improve their looks have not become more satisfied after the surgery.
This is why I’m against using plastic surgeries to improve your natural looks unless you have been in a car accident or burned. Otherwise, what you need to do is work on your mentality. You need to find out when your poor self image started to affect your life and eliminate those none sense beliefs by slowly programming your subconscious mind with healthy mental thoughts. J
