Beauty is a terrible investment. Its value keeps on diminishing with time. So if your beautiful and your marvelous countenance is your only asset I am afraid with time it will fade away and you will be left with nothing of value which will lead to low self esteem.
2. Hate club
Girls hate you because your beautiful and guys hate you cause your unreachable. This leads to stalkers and Jealous peers. Women will especially put attractive women down because they are insecure and jealous.
Dumb, vain, shallow and gold diggers. These are just few of the terms used to label beautiful people. People who are good looking have to work twice as hard to prove they are not dumb in comparison to their average looking counterparts.
