Girl talk

I woke up today thankful for a new day. Then I looked in the mirror and depression started sinking in. My nails are brittle and my teeth are weak with the enamel. They have spaces and my stomich is definitely not pretty although with clothes on you never know. My nose is a bit pointy although I have come to accept and apriciate it. I have dark circles under my eyes. I have streach marks that are super ugly. Does anyone else have this problem with becoming depressed after you see your reflection? It causes depression and anxiety.

Yes did the same thing yesterday I've been talking to a guy I liked basically told me I'm to.fat for him. He's bald and I didn't say you have too little hair for me. Look for something you like about yourself like I have big green eyes and good legs and I'm kind and funny.

yes, it is a terrible feeling. i won't patronise you by saying that it's what's on the inside that matters... because what's on the outside actually matters too. it is often considered vanity or a superficial issue to strive to look good. i absolutely believe that it does matter. good health and looking good often go hand in hand in this survival of the fittest world we live in. i just don't feel as i should about myself, i don't look the same after years of illness and a brain injury. it doesn't matter what others say, i don't recognise the reflection as me. however, what is to be done? lie down and give up! i don't think so. what things can you do, what things from your list can you take control of? what do you like about yourself, your hair, your eyes, your legs...? start with something you do like and work from there. can you pamper yourself a bit, treat yourself to product or a treatment to help you work on an area of concern?

I think a gym membership which come with groups, a new hair color, nails done, and a few new clothes, and new shoes would help me feel wonderful. I do like my eyes,ears, and lips
