I have always been depressed but I have some triggers like people picking on my looks. A lady friend of mine said that she’s seen worse referring to my appearance. I always feel alone because nobody understands my pain. I know in the seam of things it seems to be ridiculous to be depressed about being ugly but I can’t help it. I sometimes feel like not living but I couldn’t do that to my mom. Whenever I think about my friend’s comments I cry and can’t bring myself to stop. I am really sorry.

I share the same problem. I am a female and 63, I have been told many times by people, mostly men that I am unattractive and built like a man. I am unmarried and have no children.
I no longer post any pictures on social media for fear of rejection.
I try and remind myself that I am beautiful on the inside and if people would give me a chance they would see that but I don't often get that chance.
Also, I have deep compassion for other people who have deformities of any kind because they are ridiculed as easily as I am. In most cases way more!!!

I get your pain. My body is very unfortunate as well. I am 34 and not married and probably never will. I take some nice pictures of myself but feel like they are flukes. All the men that I talk to online are disgusting and don't see me as girlfriend material. My psychiatrist put me on more medication to see if it helps because I told him I felt suicidal over my looks. I'll see how that goes.

I too feel like the ugly duckling pretty much all the time. I have very low self-esteem. I feel like it's due to being told I'm ugly, I'm not good enough, I'll never be or have anything. Failed relationship after failed relationship

I have been called ugly and semi-attractive which depresses me a lot. I try to not to let it interfere in my daily life but it has taken over. That is all I think about. I have a beautiful sister that I love but it just seems unfair that I’m stuck with this face and body.
