Are You Insecure Because of Your Looks? - [email protected], Bombay
Throughout the entire 10 years, I had never grown my fringe beyond eye-level. Whenever it grew that long, I would have it trimmed. Well, I never told anyone this, but the reason why I had a fringe for all of these 10 years, up till recently, was because I was afraid to let others see my forehead. Back when I was a kid, some of the kids in school would mock me about it. Some even teased me about having a big head. However, back in those days, especially in my country, there was virtually no attention given to the topic of bullying.
Back when I was at school, I stood out, being one of the only Asian students in a small English village. This heightened my awareness of how different I looked in relation to my peers and started my obsession of comparing myself with others. By the age of thirteen, I suddenly sprouted into a gangly, long-limbed teenager with greasy hair.

Some forums can only be seen by registered members. Okay, I know some of you might think this is silly for a male to be extremely insecure of his physical looks, especially the women, but the fact of a matter is, I have been for years. Sometimes, I get so insecure about it that I just want to run home and not be around people. I tell myself that I am "not the ugliest guy on Earth" which I do believe. In comparison to people who very unfortunately, and not saying they are ugly may have physical abnormalities which I am sure hinders them from any social activity, I know I shouldn't be complaining. I keep myself in shape, I eat very well, I dress well, bathe everyday, do what I need to do to look good and presentable I guess.
If you feel insecure about the way you look, you aren't alone. People are bombarded with a huge number of messages about beauty standards every year, which can easily contribute to feelings of insecurity. To start, work on changing your mindset. Actively work against negative thoughts and make an effort to appreciate yourself and your appearance each day. From there, work on appreciating your body. Rather than seeing your body in terms of its flaws, try to appreciate what your body can do for you. You should also seek outside help.
