Hey NoRixiie, thank you for sharing this with us. We can understand how upsetting this can be. Springster, please understand that you are beautiful despite what anyone says. Also, remember that real beauty radiates from the inside out and that we should ignore and stay away from people who make us feel bad about ourselves. When people affect our self-esteem things can be really hard for us, so remember to speak to someone like a trusted adult, relative, parent, teacher or school counsellor. You can also call Childline SA. They will offer you counselling over the phone, in person and online. You don't need to give them your name and can contact them any time of the day or night. Contact them if you are scared, feel alone and if something is happening to you, or someone you know. They are here to help you! Don't forget you can contact them on their 24/7 Toll Free Helpline: 08 000 55 555 for help. Visit their website:, Facebook and Twitter page for useful information.
