big and crooked
(submitted by natwave)
My nose is wide and it points down.
I have had low self esteem from as far as I can remember. When I was very little both my mom and my sister got nose surgeries and I grew up hoping for the day I could get one. It didn’t helped much that I attended a private school with many nasty people as classmates.
There was one time a group of boys that went to the same school but i’ve never spoken to before, chased me on the street while I was walking to my home telling me how “ugly, fat and disgusting” I was. On other occasion, one guy approached me and told me he wanted to punch me in the face so I could get my nose done and then I would be beautiful.
Even my “friends” called me names behind my back. I like dying my hair red so there was one time I heard them calling me Fiona, the ogre from Shrek.
But the hardest thing of all was none of that, it was that i was physically and verbally abused in my own house.
Only recently i’m learning to love and accept myself and i want to help others.
Listen, plastic surgeries are for people that need them. People who were unfortunately born with physical malformations or have been in accidents and struggle with problems seeing, eating, talking, hearing and even breathing.
Having an “unusual” trait does not make anyone ugly or bad, and it is nobody’s obligation to fit in beauty stereotypes that have been forced upon us by others.
Much love, Abril.
My nose is above-average-sized indeed, but sometimes i wish it was more exotic like some of the ones on here. You lucky, beautiful people!

This website is the best. Truly, I look at everyone and wonder why anyone could have a problem with their face. Everyone looks so beautiful. The hard part is seeing in yourself…big nose or not.

Well, both of these pictures are of me, the top from a few years ago and the bottom now. I’ve always been the shy and quiet girl, so I was not often tormented by people about my nose, but that did not stop me from being an insecure mess about it. I’ve dreamed of nose jobs for quite some time now, but recently I’ve ruled that out almost completely. Why should society have such a great impact on us? We were created to be unique and different from everyone else! If everyone had society’s view of a ‘perfect’ nose and body we would all look like robots (and how boring that would be!). Our flaws make us who we are and test how much we really love and respect ourselves. As for myself, I’ve always feared I would never find a boy that would accept my nose and get to know me for myself, not my image. Well long story short, I found someone who thinks I am beautiful and loves my personality (BONUS!). And in the long run, who wants to be with a person who judges how much they like you based on your looks?! I’ve learned how to work my angles in pictures, look at myself in the mirror and truly know that I am beautiful (in my own way of course).(: To sum it all up though, we all beautiful whether you can see it in yourself from the start, or it takes help and a bit of time to draw it out!
I HATE my nose. And my profile. Always have. Even my awesome photographer friend (who took these pictures, which I was mortified that he posted on his website - at first) can’t really make me feel better about it. I know nose piercings draw more attention to noses, but for some reason I think getting one will make me feel better about it. This website is helping so much though, it makes me feel normal. I’m way too scared to get plastic surgery, so I know I’ll have to learn to live with it. Hopefully it’ll get a little easier as time goes on :)
