I can't look myself in the mirror

    • Thread Starter

    I just can't.
    If I make an effort I get quite a bit of interest. I know I do have good fashion sense. I'm gay.
    My hair is a mess, I have some spot marks. But I can't bear looking in the mirror to better this as I feel ugly.


    You are not ugly. I've never met you before, but I know this.
    Those who spend their lives in front of a mirror, but have no character depth to them are ugly.
    No matter how conventionally beautiful you may be when young, looks will fade when you grow older. Your character is your true reflection of yourself.
    So ask yourself this. Are you really feeling depressed for a reason as superficial as not looking like a magazine model?
    Is there not more to you than the surface of your skin?
    Once you feel better inside, you will see yourself better on the outside.
