What it’s like to live as an ugly chic

It never goes away.

No matter how many times you tell yourself it doesn’t matter, an unexpected glance at your reflection in the glass can remind you that it does.

No matter how much you protest that you are not jealous of the Barbie doll that just got a promotion, deep down, you know that you are. She could be the most wonderful person of the planet and have an IQ of 172, but you know that her life was easier if only because she never had to struggle with self-confidence.

It never goes away.

No matter how many times your husband tells you that he loves you, how gorgeous you are, how hot you are, you never really hear it. But, you always hear him when he says the latest ‘it girl’ is flawless because it confirms the fact that you are not.

It never goes away.

And if you think I am crazy and it doesn’t matter, then see the comments by The Donald Trump. “Carrie is totally beautiful. And her answer, because of that, took on greater importance….If her beauty wasn’t so great, nobody really would have cared.” Thanks Donald for making my point. (When can we fire him?)
