To those who asked.. no I don't feel prettier

I was SO proud of the one picture. I thought, for the first time in a long time, I was pretty. Then I showed Gary. He just said, "Very nice, Honey." I guess I wanted a bit more enthusiasm from him. ThenI looked at them again, I'm so not pretty. No wonder we had no sex life.

Men can be such butts. Dan doesn't get very excited about things that I think he should. If I think I look really hot and great, he'll just say that I look good. I just think it's the nature of the beast.

My Hubby does the same thing. If I think I look good, he doesn't notice. And if I think I like particularly bad one day, he will say I look "beautiful". Go figure.

The fact that you thought you were beautiful in one of the pictures is a beautiful thing all on it's own don't ya think?
Men are stupid and never say the right things.

I wish you could borrow my eyes and see what I see for a day. You ARE beautiful!

No matter what you look like, you will always be critical of yourself. Nicole Richie has the potential to be a dro-dead-gorgeous babe, but look at her... she, as Oliver so rightly puts it, "looks like a corpse." She exercises and probably diets until you can see her bones sticking out of her skin. It's gross!! But, to her, she's obviously not skinny enough. Even SHE isn't happy with how she looks. Surely there are some things we CAN and SHOULD change about ourselves to look our best, but there comes a point when we're doing our BEST, we've changed what we COULD, and we should start ACCEPTING who we are and what we are because, by golly, God made us all different, beautiful, and most importantly, IN HIS IMAGE. And I must admit, I needed to hear what I just said.

Love you!

Lin, girl, you have to stop internalizing things like that! You are a beautiful person, inside and out. Men dont realize sometimes that we need more at times than other emotionally.
I went and had my hair done, eyebrows waxed and nails done, thinking I looked gooooddddd. Roger got home and was like, you do something different to your hair...argh...men.

I don't think you should take comments like that personally and allow it to determine how you feel. There hopefully will come a day when you will look at yourself and no matter what Gary says or does you will see how truly great you are.
