I love that you made this blog. I had a big nose and no one ever made fun of me about it but I KNEW it was big and I’m a small girl so it made me feel like the most awkward bird creature to have a big nose on my face. I always felt like people were staring at it even when they could probably care less. At 17, I had a rhinoplasty and now I no longer have a big nose and I like it a lot more, however I want to state that it’s still not absolutely perfect! Plastic surgery isn’t the answer to everything and a lot of times it can make things worse than they were before. Since I can’t go back in time and undo my nose job, all I can do know to improve my self esteem and not to feel like I need to “fix” myself is learn to love or atleast accept my flaws. There is always going to be something that bothers you and putting yourself at an unnecessary risk with surgery isn’t the best option. Even the girl you see who has the cute nose you wish you had, still has flaws and I’m sure she has something she HATES about herself too. No one is perfect and honestly if you were you would be unapproachable and people would send a lot of hate your way! So I totally support your idea of learning to love yourself. I had surgery but now even just a year later at 18 I have a different outlook, and I’m trying to embrace things I don’t really like. Such as, I have big ears and I always hated putting my hair up but now I do it anyway because most people don’t care THAT MUCH about what you look like and they aren’t focusing and obsessed over it like the person who owns that characteristic is. After my nose job, barely anyone noticed even when I told them I was getting one soon! I thought it made a huge difference so that just proves that no one is staring at you as hard as you think. Thanks for making this blog I really like it and I’m glad big nosed people have something to take pride in :)
-Thank you for sharing your story! Very insightful. Your right, no one cares nearly as much as you do about how you look. We are all just people, we can’t keep having such unrealistic expectations of ourselves. We will never be perfect, so stop trying to be!
Hey, you are only 12. Don’t worry so much about guys. They are stupid at this age. It’s not your nose’s fault, it’s the stupid boys who can’t see what an awesome girl you are. They will see it in a few years though. Your nose is just a nose. If someone can’t see past it, then they aren’t worth your time. But to get a boy to like you, it is much easier than you think. Your friend is probably just really outgoing. Boys at this age are very very shy when it comes to girls. All they need is for a girl to talk to them and then they get a crush on them. You are probably shy because you feel bad about your nose and you don’t want to bring any attention to yourself. But I promise that if you just put yourself out there and you are friendly, then anyone will like you. If you take a look at some of the popular girls in your school, you will notice that some aren’t actually that pretty. A few might even have big noses. The reason that they are so liked by people is because they are super friendly and also probably because they wear certain clothes that are popular at the moment. However the clothes thing becomes less important later. All you have to do is be nice and friendly. Anyone will be your friend if you are nice to them. Literally anyone. People aren’t as scary or judgmental as you think. Everyone’s personality can easily outshine anything they are insecure about.
Well sometimes you just have to say fuck ‘em. If people are mean to you, then stop relying on their words to make you feel better about yourself. No one needs compliments to be happy with themselves. People can let you down and make you feel like shit. It happens. But you just have to pick yourself back up and realize that not everyone out there is going to be able to see the beauty in your nose. But that doesn’t mean anything. There is still a person inside of you. Maybe you are hiding it under your nose, but there is a person in there. Beauty lasts like half our lives maybe. Except if you are one of those non-aging celebrities (bruce willis). Bruce Willis has literally never aged a day in his life. Idk what it is man (probably botox). But anyways, most people are not young and beautiful forever. It doesn’t happen. So just enjoy being young while you can. Don’t bother with the compliments you aren’t receiving and your nose, just be you. Life is much more fun if you just be you. Don’t aspire to be conventionally beautiful. That is soooo boring!! Come on now. You are more open minded than that I’m sure. Small nose this, small nose that. It’s all just a bunch of noses. The person you might fall in love with later in life, maybe your nose will be what catches their eye. You never know. Just because a few people around you haven’t sent a compliment your way. There will be more people in your life, I assure you. And the lot of them will really like WHO YOU ARE. Are all of your friends, your friends because they are beautiful? Or are they your friends because you enjoy being around them? If you answered yes to the first question, then you need to reevaluate things in your life. Life isn’t a beauty contest. So stop acting like it is.
Yes of course there are guys out there who like a little character on a girl. I mean who wouldn’t? Everyone is just so lost in their own insecurities. They don’t realize that there are a lot of people in the world and they all have their own opinions and tastes. There are guys who like big noses on girls. If we all lived in a village of 30 people, then it could be harder to find varied views on beauty. But we don’t. We live in a world of billions. There has to be A LOT of big nose lovers out there.
You are not a bitch nor are you ugly and nor are you lonely because you are ugly. There are plenty of fully functioning ugly people out there. There are also plenty of very lonely beautiful people. I am always lonely, but I don’t consider myself ugly. No one is lonely because of how they look. I am lonely because I don’t try. I don’t try to make new friends or try to make plans or try do anything new. Nothing to do with my looks. Probably the same deal with you. If you want things to change in your life, you make it happen. Don’t just sit around waiting for your nose to shrink because it’s not going to happen. I could be much more of a socialite if I wanted, but at the moment that is not what I want. I am just waiting for summer to start and for my life to start. But if you want to be out there and be with people and have fun and what-not, then go do that. You only think that people think you’re ugly. Not all of them do. Maybe those few strangers (whom you shouldn’t care about since they are strangers) thought you weren’t up to their standards. But so what. Fuck them. You shouldn’t be concerned with total strangers who feel everyone should look a certain way. No one should look a certain way because there is no right way. All I hear in these messages is you being mean to yourself. You wonder why people think you are ugly? It’s because you think you are ugly. A person can really limit themselves with thoughts like this. If you keep knocking yourself down like this then you will really bring your confidence down and you will start being stand offish to people and even start judging people for silly things (like a nose). And you do this because you think everyone around you is out to get you and judge you for every move you make. And some might do this, but you can’t be in constant fear of people thinking your ugly. You can’t stop anyone’s thoughts from entering their head, no matter how often you pinch your nose. You can’t walk around being scared of yourself, that’s not going to help your cause of being less lonely and being beautiful. If you want to stop worrying about everyone staring at your flaws, then take away these flaws. Nothing is a flaw until you make it one. You decide how you want people to see you. If someone tells you that you have a big nose, you tell them “Well, yeah. Of course it’s big, but it looks fine”. Then they will probably feel kinda weird and stupid for saying that in the first place. I mean of course you know you have a big nose. And if someone tells you that your nose is ugly, you say “No it isn’t”. Stand up for yourself! You tell people how you should be seen. But you know, no one is thinking about you as much as you give them credit for. Everyone around you should care less about you having a nose and they really don’t care at all. It’s not their nose, so what do they care? Everyone has their own problems to worry about, not some girl’s nose. When you think about it, your nose is wildly insignificant. It may seem like everyone is always paying attention to your nose, but that is just you being a tad bit self centered. No one cares if the girl standing in line behind them at Starbucks has a big nose. Would you care if you saw someone with a big nose at Starbucks? Probably not, because you are too busy worrying about everyone looking at your own nose. I mean, you are just a person my dear. What exactly is everyone expecting out of you? Don’t beat yourself up so hard and focus on other things that are worth focusing on. As for your mother, well moms tend to criticize their children a lot. It is out of love and worry. If you are really displeased by her criticisms then go tell her. Sometimes you can just hear the same criticism from your mom one too many times and you snap. I have done that plenty. I snap and I tell her that she needs to stop saying these things. That it hurts when she says it. When you tell her that it hurts you to hear it, then she will reevaluate what she says to you and she will probably stop being so harsh about your nose. Sometimes moms get confused. You just have to clear things up for them.
Oh you are nit picking. Lips can never be too small unless you don’t even have any. If you look tired all the time then invest in some naps or research some home remedies to brighten your eyes. If you don’t like your eyebrows then do something about them! It’s like 5 bucks to get them threaded and shaped by a professional. Then after that you just pluck on your own because now your eyebrows look how you want them to. These are simple fixes that could make you happier with yourself. And your nose, well maybe you would be considered lucky that it’s only one side of your face that it doesn’t look so appealing. Only one side. And who is ever going to concentrate on one side of anyone’s face? When we look at people we look at the entire person, not just one side of their face. So don’t worry about that. And I am sure all together as a person, you look just fine. You have to look at the whole you because that is how other people see you. And you know, the awkward and the ugly are some of most lovable people. Don’t knock yourself down so low. You are worth much more than what you are making yourself believe.
Angelica Huston … the epitome of a strong featured woman. I wouldn’t call her beautiful .. and yet, look at her, how could she possibly not be?
I love big noses, I really love them. It’s about what you do with yourself, how you carry yourself, how you create and portray yourself. You may be born with beauty - whether your nose is big or not, but you can make yourself stunning.
It’s not easy having a big nose - a truly big one; you’re always going to stand out. So embrace it. Work with it. You might be pretty amazed at how people are drawn to you.
Do you know Gala Darling? (galadarling.com)
She knows her nose is big. She has her good days and her bad days, but ultimately she likes it. It’s big, and it suits her - because? Because she wouldn’t be Gala Darling without it.
What a stunner.
-This is awesome! What amazing ladies. You have to make your nose work for you. And anyone can do that. Thank you for submitting this. These are really gorgeous women!
at the moment yes
