This is a photo of me and my Fiance :) It’s finally a photo of my side view that i’m kinda ok with! I got my Dad’s nose and have always always always hated it but am learning to accept it. My Grandfather had the same nose. He was a war hero who passed away before I was born, so I feel if I was to change my nose it would be as if I am ashamed to share this feature of incredible people in my family. Not to mention getting surgery seems like a horrible time lol. I would rather build up my confidence from the inside than pay a ton of money for something more superficial. I really feel that if you ignore the insecurity and have a good attitude people will see past it. Why point out that someone has a big nose when they are such a cool person? We just have to make our awesomeness bigger than our noses! I have contemplated surgery a decent amount of times, but always end up with the same conclusion; loving myself for who I am will have much more benefits!

I used to be ashamed of my big nose but I’ve recently decided that I’m unique and I like it that way

This is my second submission, and I am feeling awesome about my nose and my entire face. I love everything about it.

I thought the bullying would stop once I’d left school, but complete strangers still make comments about it, even now. I’ve been bullied so much and for so long that I have anxiety, but I’m slowly trying to overcome it. Everyone who’s submitted on this blog is beautiful! I hope I can learn to see that in myself someday.

Going through this blog is making me cry. I always assumed my nose made me ugly, especially with all the bullying I got, but all these people are beautiful. I'm so glad this exists.
The amount of grief and anxiety that has been caused by my nose is absurd. I hate society for making me feel so… different. For me, it’s the little things that really get to me. These little subconscious indicators that people send. A quick touch to the nose, as if to make sure their perfect little socially acceptable nose still looks okay. It’s like I’ve made them uncomfortable simply because I exist the way that I do. The worst part is that it’s constant. It’s everywhere. I can’t avoid it. Everyone does it. The people I love, the people I look up to, and sometimes the worst, people I’ve just met. It’s like my nose precedes me. It says enough about me to people that I don’t even know and I hate it. It’s more than a loss of happiness and acceptance—its a loss of freedom. I hate it and I hate everyone who “enforces” it. I’ve grown numb to life to avoid the pain. I’m not sure I believe in true love anymore, not for me at least.
