i found this blog a few months ago and i submitted a photo along with a very negative text post about why i hated my nose so much. it’s a really uncommon shape, so i’ve never really been able to compare it with anybody elses, and i used to hate that it was different and wide. but visiting this blog every now and again has really made me realise that everybody’s perceptions of beauty are so different. there’s just no point being miserable about something you can’t change, and i’ve gradually learnt to accept and be fairly comfortable with the way i look. so thank you so much for helping me realise the best way to look at yourself.
and here’s a much more happy photo of me!
-Yayayay!! I am so happy for you!! I am glad that just going to my blog occasionally has changed your negative view of yourself so drastically. That is so so amazing. You are capable of anything! Including loving yourself. And wow, you look so beautiful when you are happy! Always be happy with yourself, it is just a much healthier lifestyle. You are simply adorable and I couldn’t be more proud of you! :D
I’ve always been insecure about my nose. Always. I hate how long it is from the side. I hate having to turn my face and knowing that people will see my nose and how horrible it looks. It makes me feel insecure about everything I do. I see people with larger noses, smaller noses, and they all seem to fit them, but mine doesn’t. I desperately want a nose ring but I probably won’t get one because it would just attract more attention to my nose (coming from the girl with pink hair, I know). I envy people with large, gracious, elegant noses, compared to mine which kind of looks like it belongs on a bird of some sort. I’m not even sure. I wouldn’t want any creature to have a nose like mine honestly.
a little really super awkward looking from the front.
I was hoping you could help me out- I know this is really vain and everything but you seem to help so many other people and it’s really awesome what you do so maybe you can help me?
-Of course I can help you! I would be honored. Let’s see here, well first of all I don’t see anything wrong with your nose. I think it is super cute and it really goes along with the shape of your face. The way it the bridge goes on for a while and then goes up a little. It is great!! It goes with your chin and just everything. Your front doesn’t look awkward either. It looks like you!! And you are so darn pretty that I don’t think you would want to be anyone else. Everything just looks so right. You were meant to have this nose and it shows. And I could see a little stud in that nose. I think it would look lovely! If you really want one then you should get one! I don’t see why not. Your nose could be just as gracious and elegant as any other nose. I guarantee. To be honest with the music I am listening to right now, you look really elegant. The key to being elegant looking is being your natural self. And you know if you really hate turning your head all the time so people wont see your nose, then that’s how you know when you should stop doing that. Never keep doing things you hate to do. I remember when I used to be super self conscious about being pale and I would apply this fake tanning lotion that was super horrible smelling. I hated that stuff. I did it for a few days and decided it just wasn’t worth being so unhappy and uncomfortable. To be honest that lotion made me wayy more insecure than how I was before I started applying it. You constantly turning your head is just a constant reminder of how much you don’t like your nose and that in turn is making you constantly self conscious. You must free your mind. Don’t care about what other people are thinking. You are in no way going to know what people are really thinking. If you are going to assume anything about other’s thoughts, assume they think you are awesome and super pretty. In short, no one is going to care in the slightest about your nose. Nobody is your friend because you are pretty. They are your friend because they like the person you are and like hanging out with you. And if someone is going to be your friend just because you are pretty, then they are not a real friend and are superficial. People will fall in love with who you are and in turn fall in love with your nose. You know why? Because your nose is how people recognize you and know that you are you. You and your nose could be exactly what someone needs to see on a bad day because they are excited to see you. You could look at all the other noses in the world and wish you had them, but it would be a wasted effort. You have this nose and it is the only nose that would look so perfect on you. As Oscar Wilde once penned, “Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.” And if you weren’t born with that nose, well you literally wouldn’t be you. You would be some other person. Be grateful for all you have and all the lovely little things that make you the unique person you are. Your nose is also a lovely little connection to your heritage. Well everything about you is a connection to your heritage. You can thank all your ancestors for you being alive today and being you! Make the most out of what you got because it is all you have. You are beautiful and if you want to feel beautiful, then let yourself. Right now you aren’t letting yourself see you as beautiful. You are letting a nose get in the way of this, but there is no need to do that. You are beautiful because you are you and your nose is beautiful because it is a part of you. Those who are worth it will see that in you :) but only if you let them!
I got bullied at school and have had people make nasty comments about my big nose. Such as penguin, crow, anteater etc. However if everybody looked the same the world would be a boring place right? I could get a nose job but have accepted what god has given me as it makes me who I am. xxx
-You don’t look like any of those things people called you. You look just like you! And you look just as you are supposed to look. And the world would most definitely be an incredibly boring place if we all looked the same. No doubt about that! I am so excited to hear that you have accepted your nose! You can forget about all those stupid comments. But you know, penguins, crows and anteaters are all lovely animals. Crows are seen as bad, but I like them. So when you think about it like that, all those insults were never really insults at all. Always spin the negative into something positive! Anyway, thank you so much for submitting! Your nose is incredible and you look so great with it! No one can tell you differently! You just wouldn’t be yourself without that wonderful schnoz!
Hi! In your quest to convince Disney to feature positive heroins with big noses, you could use this succesfull and higly praised new comic book, ‘Unterzakhn’ by Leela Corman. The cover features two young sisters from NY who are the heroins of the book.
-That is awesome!! Look at their noses! I love it. It makes them look like such strong characters. Like strong female leads, which I think is really fantastic. Thank you for this! I totally love everything you submit to me. This is some great artwork as well.
Robert Carlyle’s nose is super unique and different, especially when you look at his profile, and I know some people find it unattractive, but seriously, this man’s sex appeal is through the roof! Everything about him - especially his nose - is just so attractive!
-Oh wow! He definitely is very attractive. He is very dapper looking and I love how rough and bumpy his nose is! He is extremely handsome and his nose gives him an awesome, unique quality!
Hi! Okay so I have posted before like a whiiillee ago. But I’m getting a lot better with my insecurity and all. I don’t really try to hide it anymore because its not worth it. I try not to think too much about it but its hard. Your blog really does help me though, so thank you so much for this blog <3 (:
-I am so glad you are feeling better about your nose!! That is really great. It sounds to me like you are on the right track to fully accepting your nose. I am so happy I have been here to help you with this! If you keep trying to not think about your nose too much then eventually it will happen :) You are absolutely beautiful and you should tell yourself this all the time. Your nose is fantastic and it just looks so like you. I couldn’t see you with a different nose!
I don’t know if he’s already been on here, but I think Jack Barakat deserves a place on your blog!
-He is most certainly not on here! But he most definitely deserves to be on here. Wow what a nose. He is veryyy handsome and oh my god I love the second pic! Hahahah! So seductive.
