Some women can feel very insecure,there will be times that they just don’t know how to deal with it anymore. One woman took to social media to share her feelings about not being pretty.
She posted on Reddit to open up about her struggles with self-confidence in a heartbreaking post titled: “Ladies, how do you deal with not being pretty?” Fortunately, one male Reddit user gave her some genuinely impressive and important advice.
The woman wrote:
“I am not pretty, and I never will be. I can wear makeup, do my hair, wear a lovely dress and heels and I’ll never look like a 9/10. I know it shouldn’t bother me, but it does- I want to be beautiful, and I get so jealous that these other girls are born pretty.”
She then proceeded to ask a couple of questions that clearly showed her frustrations for not looking as beautiful as the other women.
“How do you deal with not being attractive to most men? How do you accept how you look and learn to love yourself regardless? I’ve always hated myself because of it, and I feel like this is wrong because I’m a good person, so why should it matter? I blame everything on my looks- she doesn’t like me because I’m ugly, I wasn’t invited because I’m ugly, that person walking past me sniggered because I’m ugly, etc., etc.”
Most users reassured the woman that she’s beautiful in her own way and that she shouldn’t be so hard on herself. But one man replied with a lengthy message that definitely struck a chord.
“I’m not ‘mansplaining’ or trying to discount how you feel – I’m offering a perspective that might help … I wish I could let you into a man’s head as he’s falling in love with a woman. It’s a process that’s so alien, so strange, that I’m afraid you’ve got to experience it to believe it. But it’s as real as death and taxes….”
He went on to share some very relatable details when you start liking someone.
“Sometimes, a guy will meet a gal and think nothing of it. Maybe she’s a co-worker, classmate, or his buddy’s friend. She gets mentally categorized as ‘Female, acquaintance, feelings neutral.’ Then, he gets to know her better. If they mesh personality-wise, something fascinating happens in the man’s mind. He starts to notice things about her appearance – pleasant things. It starts small – one day he realizes he likes looking at the curve of her nose, or where her ear lobe meets her face.”
“A man in love with a woman doesn’t see her objectively. There is a filter there or some kind of participatory illusion. He does not see who you see in the mirror. He is seeing someone beautiful and perfect and sublime, and it’s one of the most powerful things in his life.”
He explained that when a man loves a woman, she is “perfect and beautiful.” Read the full post here.

One man proves that first impressions don’t tell the whole story.
Students at Knoxville, Tennessee's Coulter Grove Intermediate School have learned a valuable lesson — never judge a book by its cover. It’s so easy to judge other people by the way they look or by their profession. However, one man is another reminder to all of us that there’s always more than meets the eye.
Besides, most people who see Maury Forrester cleaning the halls at Coulter Grove Intermediate School don't know about his previous career. Decades ago, he was under contract to help NASA put a man on the moon.
