And welcome to the HealingWell Depression forum. I think with all these thoughts, feelings and your actions, that you would do good by talking to a counselor. You have a lot on your plate right now and I think you could use some support.
Self image is a tough one. But what we have to realize is that others don't see us as we see ourselves. And what one person is attracted to, another isn't necessarily. So beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. You probably have a bad self image of yourself and need to not focus on yourself image so much. You probably see it out of prospective. So take a step back. Let other compliment you, accept it gracefully. And go on to being you. You sound like a very nice person. And I am sure that you are. It is what is inside that is important anyway.
Please talk to somebody, or find a self help book for self esteem. You are on your way there. So finish the course.
