I feel that I am ugly. There's really only one thing to do: therapy. Every woman feels ugly from time to time, but the fact that I'm dwelling on it makes me think that talking to a professional will help. My self-esteem seems to be at an all-time low and no amount of pep talk is going to help. I need to find out what caused this self-esteem issue and how to fix it.
You don't have to be a part of the "in crowd" to have friends. How about next time you're in class you say hi to someone and have a conversation. Or when you see someone from class in the hallways, smile and wave at them. I can assure you that you are NOT ugly, it's all in your head. Go shopping and get yourself a nice new outfit (doesn't have to be expensive!) or bust out your nailpolish and paint your nails your favorite color. Just do something that makes you feel good about yourself. Most colleges have counselors that are free that you can talk to so I suggest you look the number up to make an appointment.
I don't have any girlfriends. Do you have any advice for that? I wasn't popular in high school, but I knew a lot of people, I just wasn't part of the in-crowd.
Most colleges have counselors to help students with issues like this and can steer you to other resources that can benefit you.
I think you just need some really good girlfriends that can take you out and show you a good time!
thanks for your advice!
