Self image my body

It's like I just hate the way I look. I'm so ugly and I just want to fit in. Every day I take a shower with soap put on deodorant and a little perfume but I still manage to stink, it's not the perfume. What is it? Why can't I stay fresh like other girls?(I'm 14 by the way)

You are still growing and developing, give yourself time and you will find your body will change. If you are worried, visit your doctor, I am sure nothing is wrong but he or she may be able to put your mind at rest or give you some help if you need it. I am sure this will pass and you are not the only person with a problem like this.

Thank you for contacting Positive Personal Growth. When you continually tell yourself horrible things these become your truth, because you end up believing them. One thing you should do straight away is stop telling yourself you are ugly.

This is going to be very hard to do, but start looking in the mirror and say to yourself "I love you, you are beautiful". You have probably said "Yeah right" at this, but once you become used to saying something positive about yourself you will start to feel good inside, and it's how you feel inside that counts.

With regard to body odor, are you sure you smell, or is it something you believe about yourself through negative thoughts? With regard to you saying it's not the perfume, sometimes our body reacts and changes the smell of the perfume into something not very nice, could this be happening? Another cause may be body bacteria.
Have a look at this website may be able to help you, I hope so.

Good luck,
