Am I Pretty Enough Now?

Girl: Hey

Boy: What?

Girl: I really like you. And I... I think I'm falling in love with you.

Boy: Ok...

Girl: What do you mean "ok"?

Boy: I don't like you like that...

Girl: Why not?

Boy: I can't tell you... maybe another time..

From then on, the girl kept asking the boy "Why not?" whenever she saw him, and he kept answering the same answer of "I'll tell you later." Finally the girl got fed up.

Girl: I'm tired of this! Tell me why you don't like me!

Boy: Do you really wanna know why?

Girl: Yes!

Boy: It's because you're uglier than ANYTHING! What's the point of going out with someone when they're not pretty?!

Girl: But... I...

Boy: Just shut up and leave me alone!

The boy leaves and the girl is sitting there alone, crying her heart out. Then her cell phone rings.

Girl: Hello?

Mom: Sweetheart? I want you to go home, ok? I'll be home from work in a few hours.

Girl: Alright Mom.

Mom: I love you.

Girl: I love you too, Mom.

Mom: Bye Bye.

Girl: Bye

The girl heads home and once she got there, she went in the bathroom and looked at herself in the mirror.

Girl: I'm not pretty enough...

She set to work, knowing fully well what she was going to do. 2 hours later, her Mom came home and heard the bath water running. She went upstairs to find the hallway flooded so she knocked on the door.

Mom: Honey? Are you alright?

She opened the door and was shocked at the site. The bath was overflowing onto the floor, and the water was tinted red. She walked over to see what was inside and screamed. There, her little girl was lying with cuts all over her face and wrists. Her Mom backed away and was going to run to call the police when something caught her eye. On the mirror, "Am I pretty enough now?"


No one deserves to be told that by someone they love. A person's appearance doesn't count. What counts is their heart inside of them and their personality. No one wants to be told "they're not pretty enough"...


Peace,

YOU WANT TO HEAR CRAZY I HAVE WAITED 5YRS FOR THOSE WORD'S AND HAVE BEEN PRETTY MUCH ALONE EVER SINCE.

OH sweets, lonely5207 said it all, yes it hurts to be told you're not pretty and fit some barbie/bimbo image that a lot of guys seems to look for - it don't exist out of the plastic surgeon's office. Beauty, real beauty has to also come from the inside out - and from where I am you have a beautiful soul. I know that's no real comfort right now, but you'll get to a place where you are comfortable in your own skin. I know 'cause I've just got there myself. Get of the vicious cycle and start living.

Repeat every day till you start believing;

I AM WORTHY OF LOVE
I AM A BEAUTIFUL PERSON
I DESERVE HAPPINESS
I AM A SEXY, CONFIDENT WOMAN
I WILL NOT PUNISH MYSELF FOR BEING ME

I was told tonight by my best friend that I was pretty and that I have an awesome personality. The pretty part, not to sure about, but I do believe that I have a good personality. That felt really good to be told that. It doesn't happen alot. I guess my point is that you have to believe in yourself, in what's inside. That is what truly makes you the person that you are.

I didn't write this post, but things simular to it have happened to me. Please friends, DON'T worry about me!!! This story is not about me!!! I just liked it, & it's message. There have been many times in my life where guys said such cruel things to me, but I have someone in my life that looks at my inside, Naked Boy(aka Strongelk2006). We've been helping each other through rough patches, in our lives for 3 months now.
In the past, I wish I had a $100 for everytime a guy said to me "You have such a pretty face, but"..... or "If you were 120#'s we'd be together"! I'd be alot richer...LOL! I know now that I deserve better, & that there are guys out there that like me just the way I am. Thanks for your concern, y'all!!!

Peace, & Blog On,

You know, I married for looks and fun the first time.

I was picked on from 3rd to about 7th grade about my weight. In eighth grade, something happened, I stopped paying attention. I've never been hugely overweight, but ever since my parent's divorce when I was 7, it's always been an issue. I never got "skinny", but evened out to a very respectable and attractive size & shape. I never hung around with the "popular crowd" but I've always had great friends.

Well, I got with my ex, who I now refer to as #1 (he would piss me off, I'd flip him off, he'd tell me "I already know I'm #1, HAHAHA), because of looks and the outgoing personality. I moved 300 miles from home to be with him and, literally, got preg the weekend I moved here. I was 7-1/2 mo preg when we lost the baby due to a short umbilical cord. Baby turned head down, cord pulls tight, baby lays leg against it, cuts off oxygen. He had became withdrawn from be a while before that, but totally changed when it happened. I actually fell for him at that point. 6 wks later, we got married. 2 wks after we married, I knew I screwed up. We're fighting about my horrible depression over the loss of our child and he gets pissed off and says to me "it's been 2 months, why don't you just get over it!?"

I've learned a lot since then. About me, about him, about the kind of person I really want. I'm still not a little woman, and I may never be. I still fight my weight, but it's not a huge issue for me since I'm not married to Mr. Shallow anymore. Since my divorce, I've gone out with some really great guys. All of them have something that just makes them attractive in one way or another. None that have been "available" for anything long-term have been the total package....until now.

If you read my blog singlenlooking72 or [blog colcouple4f00]'s, you'll see us refer to Professor Luigi. He's an engineering professor at Auburn Univ. A couple people have said "an engineer? I'm sorry"...well, I'm not. We met on this site and talked a lot for a couple weeks before we ever met in person or shared pictures. He wooed me with his intelligence, charm, wit, sense of humor, our shared taste in music, etc. Then, we actually met in person. He's not a Playgirl pin-up, but as far as I'm concerned, he's an extremely attractive man. Total package. We've been seeing each other for 3 months and it just keeps getting better and better. I even pimped him on a post I did recently. I didn't realize he'd ever read my blog and when I saw he'd been to it, I took the opportunity to toot his horn. Funny thing is, this is out there for the whole world to see, but he appologized saying he wasn't trying to snoop. That's just part of the way he is, and it's all good!

When we only go for looks, we will lose 95% or more of the time. When you go on everything else, you can both win. I finally got very lucky, I got both! We're taking things "very slow" and seeing what happens, but so far it's all great!

So many people are focused with "blidervision" on outer beauty. Some of the best lokingpeople I know have absolutely NOTHING to contribute to this world once they open their mouth. Society just ingrains it into our brains from the time we are small children. The best we can do is be accepting of ALL people and hope it catches on. Take care!

Good. I'm glad you're OK.

some 23 years ago when I was at school I fancied a girl that I used to sit next to in French. Most of the lads in my year considered her to be undesirable due to looks. However to me she was the sexiest girl I knew because she's nice, very smart and you could have a conversation with her.
I was a bit of a wimp and only managed to send a valentine card, never asked her out even though she was a friend.
The last I heard she'd got married and become rich through hard work and her many talents. Her hubbie is a kept man......the lucky man.

Don't ever give up searching for the fun in life.

What a slap in the face, I started reading it, thinking it was going to be a joke, and the end... WOW that sure gets the message across real well. I'll have to copy it down so my kids can read it, I sure don't want them to have that happen to them, nor for them to do it to anyone else!

Great post,
Skye


Blessed Be
