I've always been really self conscious. Growing up I was consistently tormented and harassed for my appearance. I grew up and became "attractive"(???) but I have never felt like it. I'm dating a wonderful guy now except I always feel moderately inadequate for him. He's never called me beautiful or pretty and my fears are getting the best of me because I honestly believe it's because he has never found me to be exceptionally attractive, at least not in a conventional sense. There's a difference between being called adorable on occasion and being called honestly beautiful. #selfconfidence
