I've never been pretty by any stretch but there was a good chunk of time that I probably should have been locked in a room.
Upon hearing this, my mom was nearly in tears saying that she never knew I felt that way and that at the time, I didn't actually look like my pictures (which isn't true. I clearly remember)
Did you go through an ugly/awkward/embarrassing phase?
What do you remember about it?
Do you think you've grown out of it?
Did you ever throw away any pictures of yourself?
It's a major no-no in my family to throw away pictures but I managed to get the three most offensive out of the box.
