I don't have any control over idiots and ignoramuses who feel the need to yell at or belittle strangers and neither do you.

I can't read these people's minds and I certainly can't relate to them since I'm guessing their IQ's are below 100. It's your choice: do you want to be a victim or a survivor?

Yes, actually, but beaches are gonna be beaches. Why do you think plastic surgery would get you respect?

I'm not understanding.
Beaches are going to be beaches? What does that mean?

Word filters and such.

Why do you think plastic surgery would get you respect? It seems pretty clear just by reading this thread that people have little regard for unnecessary plastic surgeries.

You know how that works, you change yourself only to find something new you dislike. If you really are doing this to satisfy a psychological need, the truly most economical choice is to seek a therapist.

There are people who look just ordinary and most believe they should not get surgery, but they do and feel better about it afterwards. Many women say it's for mental health. Why else would anyone not in an accident or horribly deformed even GET such surgery. THey don't see themselves all day. It's because of how OTHERS respond to them. When you get down to it, a lot in life is related to the mind - a mental problem.

I know a woman who had her nose done early in life. She will not admit to it, but everyone in her family has that big, craggy thing sitting in the middle of their faces and I often think they ALL should have gone to her doctor together. The nose is just awful. They are used to it. It does not bother them. I have to look at it. Out of pity for me and those like me they should have done this.

I would make sure my 'nest' is taken care of first, money in savings for emergency, a retirement fund, job security. After that, just be absolutely certain that I picked the very best doctor that I could. In NYC, Daniel Baker and Sherrell Aston might be among those. Aston had some problems that were not found to have been his fault. Maybe he charges less because of it, though. I don't know their prices.

Its how others responed to them.

That's what im have been trying to say. If no one responded to me throughout life the way they did,I seriously doubt I would have started this thread.
