Can't be bothered to make much of an effort anymore - April 16th 2013, 02:34 PM

I was looking at old photos of me on my old Myspace earlier. I used to make so much more effort on my appearance :/ I used to straighten my hair everyday, I would wear hair extensions, I always wore make up and I would wear nicer clothes.

Half the time I just look like I've just woken up -____- My hair is in a ponytail half of the time now and I just wear a bit of foundation to cover my pimples. I've also gained weight which doesn't help.

I just can't be bothered anymore. It may have to do with my depression.

How could I pretty myself up without making so much of an effort?

You're not the only one - a lot of people make a lot of effort when they're a teenager and you find it's less so when you're a little older!! However if you're not feeling good about it then that's not good. It sounds fairly old but honestly a good way to feel good without having to go to so much effort is make sure you're eating plenty of fruit and vegetables, and drinking loads of water. Honestly, if you really try with it you'll start noticing the effect really soon and then you'll be in the habit of it (: Even fill a glass of water and bring it to bed with you, and drink it when you wake up in the morning. Getting a bit of sun always helps as well, not that that's always an option, but it'll be easier when the weather starts getting a bit better!!
