I feel happy with my appearance most of the time, maybe I need a little more workout, because I'm rather thin. ^^; The only occasion when I'm not happy with it, is when I'm talking with family members. And even then I'm more nervous about their rude comments. They never seem to change. :shrug:

That's rude of them indeed :/ But it's good that you're mostly happy about it!

The interesting thing is, that whenever I tried to please them, it always backfired and ended me being mocked bí most of my friends about my looks. But still, my parents don't want to understand, that they're not among those who I should please with my looks. :)

In all honesty, I don't care in the least c::

Really, I never understood the fuss everyone made out of their appearances... a lot of people would argue that your appearances are what everyone judges you on, but I honestly don't want anything to do with someone who's going to judge me on my looks versus my personality. Get to know someone before you start putting labels on them, basically :: P

I used to swim competitively so I have somewhat broad shoulders from the constant swimming, there not that bad but people always say that they can tell I used to swim and ask me about it a lot. Other then that I'm average in everything(body, face, ect...) . I wish I was a little bit taller though. I'm only 5ft 1inche but I haven't grown in 3 years. I would like to grow another 2 inches, that's all I need.

I'm half and half, sometimes I think 'OMG I'm gorgeous!' and then others I think 'Damn, I don't look right.' I've got a small chest (almost non-existent), awful skin, thin lips, a fat nose, curly hair with a mind of it's own (can't even run a brush through it). My insecurities are mostly due to comments of others. I can't go out without make-up on anymore :(

To be honest, I prefer small chests over huge ones, and at times I even wish I was completely flat-chested. =P Same for lips.
I feel you on the hair part, mine has been nicer to me lately but it still has its moments!

It's stupid that others comment on that, as if you can help those things (and most of all, as if they matter! -.-)

Exactly! I just tell myself it's because they're jealous :) I like my hair when it's cooperating, which isn't often, and people sometimes say it's nice so I've stopped straightening it now :D At the moment I'm embracing my appearance, maybe tomorrow I will hate it, but for today I know I'm not alone in this turmoil!! :D 'Perfection' is simply an idea created by society so we can buy things to make us 'beautiful' and others can look down upon different people to make themselves feel better. Everyone is beautiful in their own way! :heart:

Or it's because they're narrow-minded... and too busy picking on things that don't matter. You shouldn't listen to people like that. ;D
Ha, yea c: I actually started to like the fact that my hair tips go everywhere, I like that look more than just straight hair :3 And it's only normal that you sometimes love and sometimes hate it :3
The definition of beauty is created by society indeed, as an extreme visualization of the things we are looking for in that culture and era. Back when food was scarce everyone wanted to be bigger because that was a sign of wealth, now that there's food enough we want to be skinny because that is a sign of health now that obesitas and heart problems are common. It changes with the need of society, so it's not a fixed thing, and wasting a lifetime trying to become this image isn't worth the effort. ;)

Yeah, this world is messed up! And you're right, it definitely isn't worth the effort. As long as you're healthy, it's fine :)
