In high school I was known as a lesbian weirdo, they even called me Suzan the weirdo(Suzan from Muhvango) and I was skinny and dark! That used to downplay my intelligence and lower my self-esteem so if I knew then what I know now I would have changed alot of things, my high school years were gonna be the greatest thing known to men! Take it from a 23 year old! Don't mind what they say, every flower starts as a bud but later blossoms into something beautiful and beauty starts with self acceptance! What I thought was a disadvantage is now an advantage! I'm now the trend! The melanin beauty known everywhere! And guess what, most of the guys that pick on you low key like you and the girls low key want what you have so no worries! Coz somebody somewhere wants what you have! So stay popping with what you have! I hope you over look the way you look and see the woman you want to be!

Hey. My name is Elena. I'm a 16 year old Congolese girl. All my life I've been ashamed of my appearance. From my body to my hair. Everytime I'm told that I'm beautiful, I feel sick to my stomach and really disgusted. Reason being that I'm used to being called fat or ugly from my brothers. I'm used to being teased about a condition I have known as Hypertropia (lazy eye), my weight (My brothers would call me either a cow or a donkey), my complexion (I'm light-skinned) and my problems with anger. If that's not enough, my classmates talk about me behind my back. Every since I began high school, they picked on me. And now everytime I get a compliment, I either presume it is backhanded or a straight-up lie. I feel as if my lack of self-confidence has not only deteriorated but has begun to control my life because everytime I look in the mirror, I feel disgusted or I feel like crying. I'm also to scared to go to my matric dance because of my body. And ironically, my brothers complain about me being insecure. I'm sick and tired of being insecure. Of being ashamed. I need help, not only because it's affecting aspects of my life but also because I have a little sister who I need to set an example for. Please help.

Hi Elena, I'd like for you to do something. Find out why don't you like your color! Is it because of a trend? Is it because of somebody told you it's too much? Or don't you just like it? Because beauty starts with self acceptance and that makes you beautiful! You don't have to hate something to please somebody else! Don't worry about your brother's, thats what they always do(I'm the only girl too)! Don't show them you're hurting! You're a beautiful woman and beauty comes in all color, shape and sizes. Look at women like Lupita Nyongo she is super dark, super rich and super gorgeous! The color of her skin didn't determine her success and she can afford to change her skin color but chose to embrace it! You were born with all you have because of the beauty inside your parents! It made you, and baby girl if you're still in High school and stressed about your features don't worry it's gonna get better! If you could see me then and now... you'd think I'm two different people so don't stress about it hun!😚

Hey Pammy, we think Iam_Keyona-Rae is right. If you don't like your skin you need to find the root of your dislike. So if it's because of social pressure, you need to take time to appreciate your skin outside of what society thinks. Please don't rush this. Loving yourself and gaining confidence takes time and even people who are confident have insecurities now and then. Please do not be so harsh on yourself Springster. We care about you and your well-being.

Hiiii Springsteen's teen I've also had the same problem as you until I learned how to love myself...I kept on telling myself that I am who I am and nobody or no one can change that since I am unique and perfect. I used to seek attention just so I could fit in but now I have understood that I fit no where because I'm being me

Be glad you looked younger than your age coz you're gonna age with grace so enjoy that body! I used to be the same but now my guy friends always tell me our classmates look like fully grown women... they look older so I guess what seemed like a disadvantage is now a advantage although I still have to carry my ID whenever I go clubbing!😚 But still I love it!

I read all these extracts about confidence && loving yourself but I never really seem to do so. I don't know why I have so much of a low self esteem. I don't know weather it's because I'm not up to society's expectations of having long hair , light && clear skin ,an hourglass figure and all of that. I never feel comfortable where I go cause I feel as if I'm different from the world. I feel so unattractive. I get offended just by someone telling me that I have big lips for example . I really don't know why cause this makes me sad. And there's really nothing wrong with me. I am perfectly fine but then my self love && sf esteem says a whole different story.

Hey Zingawings, thank you for reaching out to us. We really appreciate you sharing your feelings with us. We think it's important for you to not be too hard on yourself. Society usually has very high expectations for what women should look like and most of us don't fit in with those expectations at all. At the end of the day, we are all different and we should all accept the skin we're in even though it's hard to do. We understand that it's easier said than done, but you should know that the journey to self-love is a long road! Don't give up on yourself Springster, and keep building the beauty that is inside of you first. Eventually you will realise and know that you are beautiful inside and out! Keep on pushing through Springster. We can't wait for you to tell us about your journey to self-love in the future!

I'm now 18 and I can't remember the last time I was comfortable in my own skin. Since entering my adolescent years I'd become self conscious and low in confidence. I was told I was too dark and too tall. I can't wear shorts because of my ugly skin, I can't get rid of my stretch marks and cellulite. What hurts me is that I'm the only one who looks different of all 3 of my sisters.

Hello Springster You should always know that people are different and we are all beautiful.Being different from other people doesnt mean that you are ugly.Everyday when you wake up you should tell yourself that you are beautiful.Please read the "Look in the mirror" article on the Springster page and it will help you on how to be confident in your own skin.

Hey Springster, we are glad that you can embrace your beauty and love yourself! Please remember that there is no such thing as "wrong", "too unfit", "too much" or "too little". Everyone is different and so unless you health is affected, there is really no reason to change anything about yourself in order for you to fit in. We hope this makes sense and we hope that you can hang out with your friends while understanding that it's okay to be different.

I was one of those girls who didn't have self confidence. Every time I had to go out with my friends I had to come with lame excuses not to go because I felt like they are more beautiful than me and that they had beautiful shapes , until one day my little sister made me realize how sexy and beautiful I am, now I can wear anything and go anywhere without any doubt. I believe in myself....

Hi, when I was in high school I didn't use much of make-up but as soon as I matriculated I started using much make-up .Because I have pimples and so many black spots so I have confidence when I wear make-up , so other people ask why I don't nurture my natural face and wear so much make-up ,is it not fair to do what u feel like doing to yourself than putting up with people starring at your face ?

Hey Sabaamahle, that is not really fair. You do what you want with your face and your body and no one can tell you what to do. Sometimes it's not really about what you look like and it's more that other people are uncomfortable with you being comfortable with yourself. Makes sense? We hope you continue to do what makes you happy.
