This was written by a 17 y/o on MySpace, and I'll be damned if this didn't stun me:
I feel like being beautiful is a way to get revenge. I get a vicious pleasure out of knowing that there are bimbos out there who have NO assets other than their sex appeal and strut around like they are valuable... and yet they are very common looking. I like knowing that I have the natural beauty that they try to make up for with fake eyelashes and breast implants... and that I don't even consider it to be my best asset. HOWEVER, I often worry that I am not very beautiful and that I am acting like them in the process of trying to prove their worthlessness... by acting as if I am beautiful, when I am actually very common. And that is when I start to worry about my appearance.

She is one very perceptive 17 year old girl! She has discovered one of life’s many vicious cycles. Revenge makes you no better than those upon whom you seek retribution, and the downward spiral of beauty, vanity and self-esteem.

If only more people in our world had insight like that...

Agreed. One-up-manship is a bad game to play. The more concerned you become about being better than everyone else, the less you enjoy it once you've succeeded.

Interesting. I have to say at 17 I would never have thought that I was attractive in any way shape or form. Tho I do however, remember wanting to be like the "beautiful" people and often wondered why I was so cursed with the fat and the big nose and the freckles and the horrible hair.

Finally, at 40,I think I look just fine and yes common. I just think most people are common looking, some stand out more than others due to my own personal taste and preferance. It's nice not to want to be like anyone else. It's nice to finally enjoy being me.
