Our expert says:
Some of us are prettier or less pretty than others, but I have really not come across people actually walking up to people at a mall to tell them they look ugly. Maybe the sadder truth is that so many people don't care anything at all about anyone else. SOme kids make unpleasant comments on people's appearance, including their fatness or thinness, but proper parents teach them not to do so.
I actually don't think you are as ugly as you think, or as ugly as you feel ; but I do appreciate that this is sincerely how you feel, and we respond in life to what we think is happening, not to some objective assessment of what might be actually happening.
You could really be helped by seeing a good local psychologist for some CBT oriented psychotherapy / counselling, to deal with your low self-confidence and low self-esteem. You'd be surprised how much difference this could make. Someone who is convinced that they are ugly or unattractive makes themselves less attractive to others, and your tactic of "lay low" may make them less likely to get to know and appreciate you.
Please arrange to see someone for counselling soon, so you can start working towards freeing yourself from this profoundly negative and awful view of yourself, and start discovering for yourself all that is great about you. Then others will be able to notice it, too
