To be more specific, I don’t like to grin much because the tendons in my neck seem to stick out tremendously which then makes me feel subconscious. I tried looking this up and apparently it’s a sign of aging, but I’m 19. Could it be a genetic factor..? I also worry that their appearance is exacerbated by my weight. I’m not sure what could possibly help, any tips would be appreciated. Thank you.

*The teeth are another matter, I plan on getting braces to correct the overbite.

I see nothing wrong with your neck and I don't really see an overbite either. Is that quest for perfection what the age of the Internet has wrought? Please dont be so hard on yourself. You're a pretty young woman.

To add to what’s already been written: Good heavens, woman, you are quite gorgeous! I know that it’s not easy for us to see ourselves as we truly are when we look in the mirror, but know that what we’re telling you is truth. For once, you CAN believe what you read on the ‘net, because we have no reason to lie. You look like a young Julia Roberts!

I was thinking Julia Roberts, too! @hatzy please put any ideas of plastic surgery out of your mind. You are beautiful. It saddens me that you are so hard on yourself. I think counseling would help you gain confidence and self-esteem. Are you open to speaking with a therapist?
