I look ugly when I smile, and feel very sad and insecure,,, please help.

by Jacqueline
(Los Angeles, CA USA)

My name is Jacqueline and I live in Los Angeles, California.

I was in an abusive relationship a few years back and this other person hit me across my face and at that time I had braces on.

My inner cheek was damaged due to the wired braces. My ortho doctor asked for me to remove the braces because it was for my own good...and to return only until and only then when I was out of this abusive relationship. Of course, I left him... and I never went back for the braces.

To make a long long story short, I am now a single mother of 4 and very poor. I'm on cal-works and receive 600 per month... to survive.

I am a very bright woman, I will tell you that. I do have my High school diploma, my associate's degree, and many years experience in the legal field. Problem is no one is hiring.

But, even after dealing with all of my past and present struggle with my 4 kids, I am always smiling but, I forget my smile is ugly. I have a gap on my right side and small gaps on front, uneven, and many silver fillings. I'm a mess.

Have not dated or met anyone....guessing its my smile.. :(

Please help me gain my confidence back. And may be with my smile I will get hired simply with my experience and my smile. :)

Sincerely Sad,

Jacqueline
