self appearance issue watch

    • Thread Starter

    so i have just started at university , and i am finding it okay... i have been feeling homesick like everyone has done but have managed to settle in and make plenty of friends quite quickly. However I am finding it so difficult because of the way i feel in myself, when i walk around i feel like everyone is looking at me thinking i am so unattractive and fat, and i just don't know how to tackle this issue. i know everywhere i go someone will find me attractive and some won't, but this doesn't stop my irrational thinking... i find myself constantly seeing if anyone is staring at me and if they are immediately I'm like its because you look rubbish... any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!! thank you so much xx

    Sounds like you need to tackle this problem at the source.

    Why is it you think you're unattractive and fat? And then if you can work on those issues, then try to change for the better. Start doing more exercise, maybe change your diet, your hairstyle or clothing to something that makes you feel more comfortable and attractive in your own skin.

    I understand not feeling attractive, and to an extent there are things you can't change. But if you're unhappy in yourself, there is no sense in leaving things the way they are. Working on changing the things you don't like.
Do you think parents should charge rent?
