Everyone knows that the majority of teenagers are shallow and immature and only pick on others imperfections to make themselves look/feel "cool." Look around at all the elderly ~ how often do you see them making fun of eachothers looks? As we get older, shallow judgements are pretty much non-existant. After highschool, we turn into real humans. Lol - and we judge people after we get to know them... not to mention that everyone looks different and everyone is attracted to something different. What is a "big nose" to you might not be to the person next door. Ya get what I mean? We can't all look like the "cookie-cutter" mold of perfection.... how boring!
Thanks for your reply Ashley. Its strange because when I read what you write I am shocked that you say that my beliefs are so wrong and people aren't judging me like how I was being judged often as a teenager. I honestly do believe it 100000000000% that I believe I am always being judged negatively for my nose and minor speech impediment. I really have no clue what is real any more. The silly thing is, where I work, I am in an office of 50 people and IMO the 3 best looking people in the office all have big noses. Also there is this girl at work who I think is so nice, she is so classy, clever, nice natured, she is attractive looking. If she had a bigger than average nose it would not change how much I like her one bit. So it does make me so confused.
I am also shocked how few replies this has got because I thought everyone with SA believed they will definitely be judged negatively for their flaws/imperfections, but maybe I have got that wrong.
Anyway Ashley, thanks for your comments, its nice to read that my beliefs that I am always being judged negatively for my flaws is wrong, I will work on trying to understand this is true.
