    We went to visit my home friends with my uni friends and they kept saying how good looking she was and this always happened at home, she would take the limelight away from me.

    I don't know how to cope with this, generally she's not in my life, we are friends but not great friends…just makes me feel like **** when peole keep saying that to me about my friend.

    I mean not that i don't get attention, we are very different looking

    Stop feeling sorry for yourself. There's far more to life than looks. If someone else is prettier than you, it doesn't actually decrease your attractiveness.

    Seriously. It bugs me how hung up some people are on how they look. Life's too damn short, and I'm in too bad a mood to give comforting advice and reassurance 😂

    Maybe they're "hung up" on how they look because looks matter a lot in surprising ways, not just romantically.

    There are so many more important things about a person. Sure, studies show attractiveness can help you in certain situations, but worrying about it causes more problems than it's worth.

    I think a lot of us have felt a bit of envy or bitterness towards someone else's looks or traits but its important to not dwell on them and remember that you are your own person with your own attractive traits, whether you believe that or not.

    The person you are will last forever, your looks won't (this from a 68 year old). Your friends looks won't last forever either, but they will always be *****es.
