My sister took this candid picture of me when I wasn’t looking and I got mad at her after because I hate profile shots. She convinced me that I looked fine but I wasn’t taking it. However, she sent me the picture and I realized that my nose actually suits my face. This is the first profile shot that I have ever not felt self-conscious about. Although I am not fully confident with my nose yet, I strongly believe that I am on my way. Slowly but surely, I will come to terms with my nose.

I’ve never been verbally humiliated about my nose, but I can see the stares. In certain photos, it looks smaller, otherwise it looks strange in some lighting.
I’m still self-conscious about my nose. I don’t like people taking pictures of me. There’s no point in getting a nose job; there’s still the risk of it turning out worse than before.
Hopefully I’ll grow to love and accept it as so many of you have.
My nose in its big, crooked glory. This is what I’ve been given, and I have to make the most of it.

when i first found this page it made me feel better and cry (with happiness) to feel acceptance, positivity and validation for us with “big” noses. Growing up kids were mean and teased me about it (mostly girls). When they’d point it out It made me feel like there was something wrong with me. Of course there isn’t, everybody is born with something different about them and that’s what makes us all unique. Me and my nose have come a long way and I’m fine with it, comfortable in my own skin and love myself. it def has given me strength and character for a great personality! My friends say I’m beautiful inside and out! Society needs to stop having such a cookie-cutter, narrow- minded view of what beautiful is, because nobody is born perfect. We should celebrate our imperfections. God and family genes made me this way. I rock it too! ;)
My mom gave me my nose. It looks cuter on her. She says I’m beautiful but that’s just what moms say. Sometimes I like it, though, just because of where it came from.

I’m only 14 years old and like most fourteen year olds I feel very insecure about my body. I hate my nose amonst the rest of myself but I’ve never looked at someone and thought they were ugly because of their nose so why should I care about mine so much? I’ve been so suprised about the pictures on here because there are so many people who hate their noses but in my eyes they are beautiful.
i guess it’s the norm to be self-conscious about my big nose, but i actually kind of love it. my great grandpa and his 10 brothers and sisters all have this nose and i think that is the coolest thing in the world.
