  • "Some" is totally an understatement. I think it is because of society's high expectations of physical beauty. Beauty ads, photo manipulation, magazines, and Hollywood don't help that much, I'm sure. There are women who feel undesired when their boyfriends watch "p0rn" over spending time with them. It's been known to make girls feel like they aren't pretty enough. There's just so much in western society that puts the wrong values in peoples heads. (This is just my opinion). ^_^
  • You may think they are beautiful, but they dont.
  • Being beautiful doesn't mean one gets to be excluded from real life situations where hurt and betrayal often result in doubts about oneself and mistrust of others.
  • I'm not sure where it came from, but I've always liked this explanation: "Girls are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. The boys don’t want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren’t as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they’re amazing. They just have to wait for the right boy to come along, the one who’s brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree."
  • Beauty is not what appeals physically.True beauty lies within the heart and mind! And a quote I happened to hear sometime back.I don't know whether it fits for this question or not...whatever...I just make a mention of it here. "The weaker sex is the weakness of the stronger sex;not because the weaker sex is stronger but the stronger sex is weaker".
  • Being attractive is good, being thought of as; Blonde, goodlooking, and nothing else leaves room for much doubt as to self worth. Yea......Yea. I know how awful, but it's true. I've never had my mind whistled at.
  • Perhaps they don't see themselves as you and I do, kdp. There are women who are anorexic and on the verge of death and still "see" themselves as fat. I think what each of sees when we look in the mirror can be far different from how others see us. Maybe the beautiful girl was told she was stupid or ugly all her life by a parent who didn't realize the harm words can do..or maybe because she is beautiful and that is all anyone ever tells her, she rebels because at some point beauty fades and then, if that is all she is, what happens next? :)
  • Physical beauty isn't the only source of a personal sense of security. In fact, it can cause insecurity - do people like you for who you are or how you look? Can you ever be sure? All physical beauty really does for a person is ensure that in some way they are admired or accepted by others. It has nothing to do with the ability to accept and like yourself.
  • Being beautiful isn't enough. If it's all someone has to rely upon, there is a constant struggle to 'stay beautiful'. People expect a beautiful woman to always look her best. It's ridiculous. Beauty, to me, is more important on the inside anyway. If you are educated and intelligent, loving and kind, you have fulfillment in ways that beauty alone could never bring you.
  • Maybe they don't think they're good enough. They're beautiful but maybe they have the feeling people do nice things for them just because they're pretty... not because they're nice people, which most are.
  • I think one thing is they she the negatives, and not the positives of them self. Like some people with eating disorders don't think they are skinny enough or if they gain 1 pound they are fat. Maybe they don't think they are as pretty as everyone else thinks they are. Maybe they had a bad relationship and blame them self for the reason, even thou it wasn't their fault.
  • probably for the same reasons as every other insecure person - they don't realise how special and loved they are by people.
  • Because it is true what they say..."beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone". An ugly inside, brings out jealousy. No relationship will last on looks alone, you have to have some substance!
  • Because they are too self-conscious of their appearance, particularly in public. They know they are attractive, so they think people are always looking at them. :) (Now, I'm going to get bashed! :( )
  • Because they feel they are judged solely on their appearance due to people recognizing their looks before their talents etc.. That's a lot of pressure. They are those who look in the mirror a dozen times a day, and ask people " do I look cute ? " a dozen more. They were told so much how cute they were that they feel their looks define them. The reality is as mothers we should praise our daughters for who they are inside first focusing on building their self-esteem within.
  • You callin' me insecure?
  • Because they have to worry that people are only interested in them for what they look like.
  • Maybe they weren't always beautiful and were teased because of it.
  • On a scale 1-10 I'm a six. I m insecure. I know I am. there are a lot of reasons why. One is I can never do anything right. No matter how hard or I try no matter what I sacrifice,I lose in the end. Especially in relationships.
