What makes you feel beautiful?

“I can tell if I’m beautiful or not mostly by other people’s reactions. If someone is looking at me with love in their eyes, than I feel more beautiful.”

How has your sense of beauty been constructed?

“Sometimes I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and I’ll like something I see, and I’ll feel beautiful that way, but mostly I avoid looking at myself a lot. I have an image in my head of how I look that is based partly on memory and partly on seeing myself through other peoples’ eyes, and sometimes I catch actual glimpses of myself and it destroys the illusion; I’d rather not.”
