your life is kind of like my dream life tbh. amazing and supportive family, super amazing sister, dream boyfriend, awesome friends who will always be there for you... i'm actually so jealous and craving for a life like that. i don't have any of that and i'm so ugly anyway and my life is shit and i hate myself
I’m really sorry that you hate yourself because no one should ever go through life hating themselves. You really shouldn’t be jealous of me because I am far from perfect (whatever ‘perfect’ is) and I think now a days social media has made us believe that everyone else’s lives are much better than our own. People only see what I let them see either on instagram, tumblr, or whatever but every single person in this world has their own struggles, there is no such thing as a perfect family, my family is far from perfect and all of us have our own problems and battles we deal with. its weird because Tavi and I were talking the other day about how instagram makes people seem like their lives are perfect. People can make assumptions from my ‘internet persona’ because everyone has a persona and what they show people is the best version of themselves that they want people to see. It pains me that you think you’re ugly, because no one is ugly, unless they believe it themselves. And I think comparing ourselves to others is a huge problem and its really hard not to when you see people on the internet and in real life, but I know that you are not ugly, and you should look at yourself in the mirror and give yourself at least one compliment a day because over time it really makes a difference. And you’re right that my life is like a ‘dream’ because my life is just that, a dream or perceptions that other people have and its not real, my life isn’t simple and blissful and amazing, i just only let people see the good things in my life.
sorry for that long rant but i just don’t want you to ever feel bad or negatively towards yourself. no one needs a dream boyfriend to complete their lives, i think to live a happy life, we need to first accept ourselves for who we are, and learn to be happy with ourselves.
