 You are a wonderful woman and you deserve the best I said while she cried.

THAT MEANS NOTHING she screamed,  YOUR BEAUTIFUL, AND IM UGLY.  No matter what I will always be fat, ugly and nothing, a nobody.  I could lose all the weight, I could be smart, but I am still UGLY!  I dont deserve anything.

It was one of the hardest moments of my life, looking into the eyes of someone who I cared about, who I admired for her choices in life.  But all she saw was UGLY.  She couldnt see how amazing I thought she was, or what a character she possessed.   She only saw UGLY.

Tonight we are discussing how the pressure of societies dictated beauty can destroy self esteem.  How being not up to societies standards can affect people in a strong way.  Affect them to the point that they give up on themselves and on life.

What can we do to combat Ugly Duckling Syndrome?  Tonight we have Stacie Smith and LargeInCharge Columist Lucia Roth joining us in this discussion.
