Not Getting Any Likes on Your Selfies

Not Getting Any Likes on Your Selfies Since it can take you a few minutes to strike the perfect pose and tilt your phone at the perfect angle, you'll expect to get dozens of likes after you post a picture on Instagram. When that doesn't happen, you can feel crushed. Of course, your friends might not have even seen the picture. During certain times of the day, you aren't going to get many likes, even if you look flawless.


Staring in the Mirror for Too Long

Staring in the Mirror for Too Long It's unhealthy to look into the mirror for long periods of time. Even if you look amazing, you're going to find flaws on your face and body if you stare for long enough. That's why you should only give yourself a few minutes to get ready in front of the mirror in the morning. Then, when you check your reflection throughout the day, make it quick.


Getting Turned down by Your Crush

Getting Turned down by Your Crush When your crush rejects you, or when he flirts with another girl, you might feel uglier than ever. However, your looks have nothing to do with him not liking you. If you're not together, it's because it's not meant to be. There are plenty of men out there that would consider you gorgeous. You just have to wait until you find them.


Having a Bad Hair Day

person, woman, girl, beauty, lady, Having a bad hair day can feel like the end of the world. How can you feel attractive when you know your hair isn't cooperating with you? Well, there are a few things you can do to fix that dip in your confidence. You can either put on a hat, braid your hair, or cover it up with a bandana. That way, you won't have to worry about it anymore.


Being in a Bad Mood

Being in a Bad Mood When you're in a bad mood, you'll put a negative spin on everything. That means that you'll assume that you look horrible, even though you actually look fabulous. In order to feel beautiful again, you should do something to lift your mood. When you feel good, your positivity will return.

Famous Quotes

To give oneself earnestly to the duties due to men, and, while respecting spiritual beings, to keep aloof from them, may be called wisdom.


Having Trouble with Your Makeup

Having Trouble with Your Makeup We all love to look at YouTube tutorials and fashion gurus on Instagram. We wish we could do our makeup like them, which is why we can get so frustrated when the wings of our eyeliner don't match. Of course, you don't need to wear makeup in order to feel beautiful. You're gorgeous without it, and you're gorgeous when it's a little uneven.


Having Your Plans Canceled

Having Your Plans Canceled It doesn't matter if your friends or a boy cancel plans. Either way, it can make you feel undesirable. To make yourself feel better, you should get dressed up as if you were leaving the house. In fact, get out! You don't need other people with you in order to have fun at dinner or a movie.


Feeling like You're Being Ignored

hair, color, human hair color, red, face, Sometimes there are those people who are rude enough to ignore us, and this can make us feel ugly and/or undesirable, but if you don't hear back from someone right away it's important not to assume they are ignoring you. Give them a couple of days to get back to you, instead of thinking the worse and using it as a way to view yourself negatively.


Getting Break-outs and Blemishes

face, person, nose, black hair, beauty, Getting blemishes is nothing to feel embarrassed about, honestly!

Any Insecurities You Have

We all have ugly days.. :P nobody is perfect ;)

I could relate to a few of these things. I am currently talking to a guy who constantly is flirting and yes it makes me feel horrible. Sometimes i think maybe ig i had pin straight hair he wouldn't flirt but ive learned it isn't me he's just a jerk.

All woman are beautiful and unique in their own way :)

This list is spot on, lol. And I agree with your comment as well MaryPat.

Add acne to the list. 😟

Ahh I love this list,sometimes I feel like the ugliest human beginning other times I feel like a princess ☺️I guess it depends on the day


Number three is not true because your looks does have something to do with whether a guy likes you. And "meant to be" doesn't exist. Nothing is predestined.

The media Hands down! You only have to look at a magazine and see some emaciated girls to realise that young girls are sold a lie! Good article don't the media dictate you!

How about a jerk for a "boyfriend" who berates you regularly? That's a real bummer too.
