The "My Imperfections Make Me Beautiful!" Thread. - November 17th 2012, 07:34 PM

This is something I got everyone to do in the first FCRD tonight on Achieving a Positive Body Image. I thought it'd be good to continue on site.

So, follow my lead!

I'm Louise. My eyes are different colours, and my voice goes really high pitched when I get nervous!


Now, what are YOUR imperfections?

I'm Kayla.
My freckles are unporportionally spread across my face and my eyes are the prettiest when I cry.

I will walk with you, so you're never alone.

I'm Jay, I'm not the perfect weight, my lips are too small and my hands sweat when I'm nervous..... I talk wayy to much, and am overconfident which ends up making me look stupid.. this is why I am... beautiful?

Hey

I'm Mia, I'm very clumsy due to my dyspraxia, I get incredibly nervous/shy around people I dont know very well and I dont like big crowds of people-but sure it makes me beautiful and life interesting, so what about it?!

I'm Kayla, and I laugh really loud and am kinda loud in general.
I tend to be a little too... bold and straight forward sometimes. I kinda speak my mind a little too much. Haha.

I'd like to say, I LOVE THIS thread. Seriously. Great project you've got going here!



So dance if it moves you,
and jump in the fire, if it burns you.
I'll throw my arms around you darlin',
and we'll turn to ashes.

Kinda like the way you tell me,
"Baby, please come home. I need you here right now.
I'm crying underwater so you don't hear the sound."


What if I can't forget you?
I'll burn your name into my throat.
I'll be the fire that'll catch you.
What's so good about picking up the pieces?

Oh, and I'm too short and my hair is always a mess and my face is too chubby. :P Haha. Wanted to get that in there.

I'm Haru.

I'm absolutely TERRIFIED of even the tiniest spider. I'm quiet and very shy with new people. I have uncontrolled random seizures despite being on several medications. I have a pudgy belly, and I have permanent dark rings under my eyes from years of untreated insomnia due to depression. My boobs are too big and it makes me look top heavy and disproportionate. I talk too much and laugh too loud. I have one ear that pokes out because I was born without cartilage in that ear. (That's the stuff that gives your ears shape.) My hair is horribly broken due to medication making it fall out. I have horrible stretch marks on my thighs and I have very low self esteem.


I love my Big Sleepy Bear.
I still fill my panties; do YOU?

I am weird because I talk about things in a way that makes people go "ewww" but I've been told that I am cute. And I have quite a lot of fat cells in my adipose tissue which makes me cuddly.

I'm Hollie and I've never, for as long as I remember, been happy with my weight. I get dizzy in crowds and am terrified of being around people, I get stressed easily and feel lonely a lot but I get on with it.

I'm Hailey.

I don't trust a lot of people, I have low self esteem/confidence, and I'm ridiculously socially awkward sometimes. I also laugh too loud and occasionally raise my voice without even realizing it.

But hey, the bright side is that it feels like a weight off my shoulders when I find someone I do trust (very, very, very rare occurrence, and my friends are socially awkward too and we all think it's hilarious

Hi, I'm Lex. I have a super skinny leg with no muscle and I get pins and needles from my bottom to my toes if I stand up or sit down too long. I also may seem quite loud but in person I'm quieter.

I'm Breeze and I am anemic, I snort when I laugh, and I have anger and trust issues. This is what makes me beautiful.


I am home schooled and proud of it! No, I do not like skirts. Yes, I have a social life. I'm conservative and I wear a purity ring. I am dead set on saving my first kiss for my wedding day. If you want to tell me that saving my kiss is impossible, STUFF IT.

I'm Kamrin, I have a really low self esteem, I laugh when I'm nervous, I'm afraid of groups of people, I'm clumsy, I'm shy, and even though people tell me I'm really skinny I still feel huge when I look in the mirror. I'm nothing special, I'm just me

I'm Molly. I have really low self-esteem, I have Asperges, I tend to worry and stress too much, I have acne, my belly looks podgy, I think I'm struggling with depression, I have pretty much no friends in real life anymore. I just sometimes wish that life was easier, but my wishes never come true.

I'm Mandy and I've got anger and low self-esteem issues.
I have slight bunny teeth and I've never quite been happy with my weight or height.
Also, I sometimes get too obsessed (like, super-duper obsessed) with a few people.

PS: This is such an amazing idea. Way to go Louise!

I'm a human being, I can be terribly bitchy, I'm short and I have a huge nose, and I suppose this makes me beautiful.
