Many people say I look like an Indian because I have brown skin and my face look like an Indian too, but actually I'm Indonesian.

I'm not thin girl. One year ago, I had long hair, but now, I cut it. I have an oval face, big eyes. I'm short, very short, so I feel so sad about it.

Hi Quocduy,
In your calculation, you mean you've eventually gained 5 more kilograms since you were called 'fat boy' or 'Bear' or 'Pig' ?? I wonder how one can lose 10 kg and gain 15 kg again??

Hi Elsa,
Yah, It took me 1 year so I think gain or lose kg are not too hard. For example, a person is 50kg and in that summer he did hard working and lost 10kg so about 1year later, he ate a lot and he got fatter than the original. The period I said was 1 year so I think if you determined, everything would be successful.

Boa Boa, people call him like this.
He lives in mountains, rarely comes down to the town where people gather to live.
Some say he's the guardian of the town.....

Hey, can somebody continue this story? I'll relay a baton to somebody who is willing to make up the sequel?
Why don't we make a story together to see what will happen! :)

I'm not happy with my appearance, so I'm planning to have a plastic surgery. I 've got long wavy hair and a green and a blue eye ( serious). I'm blond. My ears and nose are ideal to a lot of people. I've got thin and long eyebrows. I've got pink full lips.
I am tall and slim ( 1.80 ) I have got a beauty spot over my right lip. People say I look like Adriana Lima, but I find her ugly.
I'm too unhappy, unhappy, unhappy

Actually gizem, you are amazing, and you’ve done a very brave thing. By writing your feelings here, you’ve started helping yourself to feel better. Sadly, it’s really common for people to be unhappy with their appearance. Nobody’s perfect, and when we don’t feel good about ourselves, we focus our negativity on certain things, like something about our appearance. But do you know what? The root cause of all this isn’t how you look, it’s how you feel. For example, try to notice someone you think has a beautiful smile. What makes the smile beautiful? I bet you it’s their personality ... their interaction with other people, or their sense of humour that made them smile. So, no one’s perfect, but everyone is beautiful. You’ve already done something positive to change how you feel, so keep going! Look after yourself, do the things you enjoy, and focus on the the things you’re good at. (English seems to be one of them!)

Feeling good about yourself is not an easy thing at all. It takes practice. I wish you lots and lots of luck in the process!

What do our other users do to feel good about themselves?

Best wishes, Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)
