    Realize there is always someone uglier. And you have to begin that life doesn't favor you for your looks. I have learned to realize that A TON of people say they're ugly just to hear people say they aren't ugly. You need to learn to not care.

    I don't believe it. I myself, know, and accept my 'faults' and no one will make me feel bad about them. It is me.

    Why are you feeling down on yourself?

    Start smiling(even if you don't feel like it). It feels so great to have someone smile back and say you are so cheerful. I've gotten so many tips at work(I work at a movie theater. Not a place for regular tips) for smiling, and nice.

    There is nothing uglier than an ugly personality. You could be the most "gorgeous" person alive, but if you aren't nice or appear unhappy, it will spoil it all.

    Start complimenting people. It will make you feel great to make someone else feel good.

    If you have cable, you should watch "How to Look Good Naked" with Carson Kressley. I absolutely adore this show, and Carson's a horse person as well. I actually heard about his show from a Horse Website. I KNEW that guy looked familiar!

    Please read the Desiderata. I have tried to live my life by this poem. I found it as a teenager and it has helped me through many trials in my life. I keep a copy in my wallet and still have the original poster I got when I was around 15-16 and I'm 50 now. I can pretty much quote it word for word. I don't know how many times I have faced some delema and refered to some point in the poem to get me through. I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me know how to live my life.

    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    And remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible without surrender
    Be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    And listen to others,
    Even the dull and the ignorant;
    They too have their story.

    Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
    They are vexations to the spirit.
    If you compare yourself with others,
    You may become vain and bitter;
    For always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
    Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

    Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
    It is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
    Exercise caution in your business affairs;
    For the world is full of trickery.
    But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
    Many persons strive for high ideals;
    And everywhere life is full of heroism.

    Be yourself.
    Especially, do not feign affection.
    Neither be cynical about love;
    For in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
    It is as perennial as the grass.

    Take kindly the counsel of the years,
    Gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
    Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
    But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
    Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
    Beyond a wholesome discipline,
    Be gentle with yourself.

    You are a child of the universe,
    No less than the trees and the stars;
    You have a right to be here.
    And whether or not it is clear to you,
    No doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

    Therefore be at peace with God,
    Whatever you conceive Him to be,
    And whatever your labors and aspirations,
    In the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

    With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
    It is still a beautiful world.
    Be cheerful.
    Strive to be happy.
