I don't like my face. My insecurities affect my relationship with my daughter. I don't give my full attention to her. I feel people are laughing when they see me. I don't know why I'm feeling this way. My husband never compliment me, never get jealous ,..

I am sure you are beautiful. Media and the social way of the world has a lot to answer too. I often feel this way and I try to do something for myself like last week I plucked my eyebrows ouchy! But now I feel different when I see myself. I of course have things I can't change about my face scars moles etc i just have to not look at these somedays

I think if you are that insecure and unhappy with how you look on the outside that it's affecting you as a mom, it may be worth it to talk to a counsellor/therapist. Good luck and know that there is no shame in seeking help.

I felt the same as you. My husband always told me I was attractive, beautiful, etc but I never felt it.
We had a little girl and I still didnt feel it but as she grew I would tell her she was stunning and how pretty she was (she was/is incredibly pretty), etc and I intentionally stopped putting myself down, making negative comments and checking my flaws in the mirrors as I didnt want to have her learning bad self image problems.
Over time I found myself prettier and I can honestly say I'm not the pretiest out there but I do love myself now and can find myself attractive in different ways. Now when I doll myself up I think I look very nice. I even have weeks where I will leave the house without make up on (which a handful of years ago I swore Id never be able to do).

Omg we are the same. But I still cannot go out without make up. IT is like my mask to cover my flaws. I have a daughter too and I keep on telling her that she is beautiful because I don't want her to experience what I'm experiencing right now. I hope I can overcome this just like what you did. Good thing for u your husband compliment u but for my case, he never did.
