beautiful. I say this without knowing how you look because you had the courage to come onto a forum and post your fears and your
"faults" for the world to see. You are a beautiful young woman, and nobody can take that from you.
You have nothing to be afraid of.
The people who truly love you don't care whether or not you are made up. You can't disappoint them in this way.
Honestly, I would be disappointed in myself if my little daughter grew up and cared only about what others thought of her appearance, this would mean
I didn't raise her to see that she is beautiful and awesome always, regardless of what the world says.
I propose you do a little experiment: gradually wear less or lighter makeup every day for a week. On the last day, wear no makeup. See if anyone makes
I don't think people ask if you're sick because you look awful without makeup, I think they are asking because they notice something different about
you and aren't sure what.
A little story: I recently cut my hair from below-shoulder length to fairly short. When I went to work the next day, my office mate came in and sat
down and stared at me for a full minute before saying, "Well... I know you're not wearing a hat..." He seriously couldn't tell why I looked
It's perfectly normal to have stretchmarks and cellulite and various scars, these things are genetic. They don't make you any less beautiful.
Not too long ago, one of the Kardashians (sp? I don't know anything about them...) was on a magazine cover that had not been photoshopped. There were
a lot of critics talking about it because some cellulite on her thigh was visible in the image, and she finally came out and said, "Who cares? It's
just my body."
You will probably be more comfortable with your body as you get older, I think that after awhile it gets to the point where you just don't care what
other people think about you as much. I'm actually only a few years older than you.
You are who you are, be proud!
Thank you for taking the time to read and contribute to the thread. We all appreciate it!
