For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
For as long as I can remember I’ve always been the ugly duckling. I was never the girl that got a lot of male attention and I was not the most popular girl in high school. Now at 23 I’ve moved back to Illinois after being away for about four years to be closer to my family and I’m finding it difficult to get out and meet people. I’m still kind of stuck in my ugly duckling stage. I’m just starting to wear makeup, change up my clothes, and take care of my body. I want to start dating and meet new people but I am not sure exactly how to. Since I’m an only child I really don’t have anyone else to ask.
Has anyone ever felt like this? If so how did you get out of it? Any help is appreciated! :-)
Thanks for posting Siren!
Ladies this a link to a video that addresses insecurities I think it is a great listen.
I too was an ugly duckling and shy... and I am more secure and confident in who I am than I used to be. It takes work and it isn't as hard as you think it just starts with stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying something new.
can i kick it said:
First Paris I commend you for being brave enough to admit you have insecurites and also for trying to do something about it. I am newbie but I love this site yall give it to people straight no chaser but you also know when to be kind when it counts and the comments in this blog were so positive and affirming I love it. That being said and done I had the same syndrome when I was younger I was picked on because of my color (darkskin) size, clothes, style, etc and I had coke bottle glasses so you can imagine lol. It took a while for me to come to terms with my beauty and learn to love me but I did and so will you. I will be honest I am in my thirties and I still have my days. But as someone else said you have to know you are beautiful first and don't let the way other people perceive you affect the way you feel about yourself. Whether its positive or negative you have to know you're a bad chick regardless and I think you are just keep making the positive changes and continue your path towards self love and acceptance and you will come into your own. Good luck to you :)
