25. Change the things about your looks that you can control.
“By making myself un-ugly. Mostly ‘ugly’ people are that way because of factors they can control, mine was pepperoni face levels of acne and super oily hair that looked gross if I even skipped one day of showering. I got tired of using crappy face wash and started seeing a dermatologist, the pill he gave me worked instantly. Got a buzz cut and looked ten times better. As they say ‘the true definition of insanity is doing the same thing twice and expecting different results.’”
26. Just be yourself.
“This is the most cliché in the book, but by being myself. It took my several years to figure out what that was for me. I am not by any means ugly but I am a little fat, got bald at 19 and I am not very tall (in NL everyone is a fucking giant) so I wasn’t very confident in my teens and early 20’s.
However, the last 3 years or so I found out I am a very positive and optimistic person with a good sense of humor. It’s not that I am swimming in babes but I had my fair share of beauties. Pure beauty wise I am almost always punching above my league.
Having a proper job, degree and manners also helped.”
27. Just be a good person and good things will happen.
“Just refuse to acknowledge looks as something that matters. Just be unapologetically you, be love, be kindness, be compassion. Just be a good person and good things will happen. Remember that it’s worth waiting for someone who’s able to see through the ephemeral such as looks, and can see into your soul and loves you for that, as well as don’t be so superficial and shallow yourself. Beauty exists in all forms, and you’re beautiful even if the mushy meat sack you’re encapsulated in doesn’t meet ‘society’s standards of beauty’ I believe in you bud, everything will work out.”
