    I dont know what is wrong with me but i always feel down and upset and the only time i am really happy is when i am in my house with my mum and sister. i constantly feel i am ugly and feel that i dress bad, other people tell me all the time that i am not and i used to listen but now it just feels liek they are saying it because they are my friends and they need to. I am really fed up of having to put a smile on and fake my happiness. Is their a secret to being happy or am i just messed up?

    You sound depressed. Go to a doctor.

    Hard to tell. Tempting to agree on the depression front but it sounds more like a severe lack of self-esteem to me? :yep:

    loads of people get body (normally facial) dismorphia. Just spend loads of time looking at yourself in the mirror, focusing on your good points, as well bad points you can solve (e.g. bad skin) and those you can't help (e.g. i wish my jaw was less square and my nose was less round, but you can't really help these things - just get comfortable with looking at yourself in the mirror). Dressing bad you can certainly solve, just go for something simple - look at what other people are wearing. If it helps, everyone feels insecure, to varying extents.
