I'm guessing she just wants someone to talk to, and/or looking for a date and maybe the person with the right answer for her will pop in and post something.

Thinking like that will not do any good for you. All it can do is break you down. I, as a Black man, have learned that in this society, American society, that Whites are often considered the standard of beauty. I can't wish for sharper features or to be White. There are times I have wished that for myself, feeling that I would get an easier shot in this society. However, I can't worry about that. I was created this way. I know there is nothing wrong with how I look and there is nothing wrong with what you look like. The standard of this society is the opposite of what we are. We can't do much about it because it's all about what sells. All we can do is do our best and decide what my standard and your standard will be.

I am a mutt, but you couldn't tell that because I look like your everyday goofy Irish. When I tell people what my grandparents are, they are shocked. lol. I could even go as far as to say if you've lived here long enough, you may be every race, it's just there may be more of one side then the others in your generation.

I don't know where people get, because you're this or that, things will come easy. Let me tell you something, NOTHING in the USA is easy. Everything is a God damned fight in this country. Want tires done right? It's a fight. Want to find a good job? It's a fight. Want to eat? it's a fight. We are talking a bloody, to your grave tiring fight. You think people like Steve Jobs made his millions by doing everything by the book? pfft yah right.

I don't care what any politician or person says, this country is a *****, if you loathe around, and don't fight you will lose so hard. But the moment you start fighting, things will be different.

As far as why can't west,east, south, north so and so be most beautiful. Let me tell you, I've ran into many BEAUTIFUL Nigerian women. Last time I looked, that country was on the WEST side of Africa. Lastly, I'm sick of the poor me threads. What about the poor me threads for the people of Congo?

She needs to talk to a psychologist. A really good one.

Because someone is insecure on the surface (and that's all we know about her), it doesn't mean she needs a shrink or psychologist. Based on the angry and mean spirited posts I see on cd everyday, there are some in far more dire need of a mental health consultation.

I was trying to give the OP some advice based on my experience. My point was that we can't spend our lives trying to fit into someone else's standard of beauty. We can only do our best and be ourselves.

I don't think she needs a psychologist. I don't consider it a sign of mental health problems. None of what she says implies being mentally unstable. I can understand that kind of pain because I've been through it. There is nothing "mentally unstable" about it. It comes from having one's self esteem being dragged through the mud, and in this case, having to deal with standards that have nothing to do with what a person actually does, but rather how a person looks.
