These things don't help your self-image and confidence, that's certainly true. Whether they directly can or do cause SA, I don't know.

One thing I have learned is that perceived attractiveness is almost completely in the eye of the beholder: I have been described by different women as both "ugly" and "gorgeous", as well as "weird-looking"
That is incredible. Its interesting isn't it that we see ourselves as having "problems" and yet we are for the most part respectful and kind to others and then those that we think are "normal" can be rude and arrogant. It makes you wonder who really has the problems.
