We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
When you're insecure you tend to see yourself as ugly although others may think otherwise. And in general, people are almost never satisfied with themselves, it's human nature. I think it takes real work to accept yourself the way you are. Although in Serena's case,and many girs on Instagram, this is extremely unhealthy. Because it actually looks like she's completely deluded about the way she looks. If even she could be honest about it, it wouldn't be that terrible. But her editing is obvious yet she still pretends it's her real self.
This is f*cking disgusting, I'm completely done with these people. They have NO respect of Black people. Black skin is NOT a f*cking costume, Black women are not here to be impersonated and get their bodies more sexualised than it already is. Even if it is done for artistic purposes, it is still wrong as hell ! Nothing would keep her away from making an actual dark skinned model pose for this. Just yet another excuse to use Black skin as a costume.
Is that Paige on the last picture? It makes me think there must be some photoshopping involved in her Instagram pictures because she doesn't look as much as Ariana than on her Instagram. The resemblance mostly depends from make-up anyways. In her older pictures I think there's zero resemblance to Ariana. Of course if you're gonna style your hair and wear makeup like her and probably photoshop your pictures you're gonna look like her. What I find most shocking is that she's only 14 or 15.
Yeah she definitely should take a break from social media, and try to gain more confidence in herself. She's pretty without the editing and has a nice body. It's much easier said than done, but not impossible. Just needs to work on herself.
I have the same problem. I'm 21, and look like literally someone who hasn't gone through puberty, especially since the last year when I have gotten underweight due to a lot of stress. I've never been really big, but in high school I had a normal weight at least. At that time I was only insecure about my face full of acnea. When i didn't have it anymore (ironically, it was when I didn't care about it after trying so much to get rid of it), and when I cut my hair 3 years ago, I started to accept myself, accept my small boobs,trying to love myself more. And it started well. But now I feel the most insecure again, of my body, even my face that I liked I don't find it pretty anymore when I look in the mirror. Just like you it's mostly partly because my bf likes everything that I'm not. But that's on me.
