Seeing our own beauty is always tough, but the best way to get rid of negative thoughts is to challenge them. That can be difficult at first, but whenever a negative thought comes up, look for information that might disprove or temper it. For example, if you say to yourself, "I'm not beautiful on the inside," then challenge that by thinking of moments when you have been generous, trusting, loving, caring, selfless--whatever you consider beautiful. Ask your friends and family to tell you about qualities of yours that they particularly love or moments when they found you beautiful. Then whenever that thought comes up again (and it's okay if it does), use that information to challenge it. Eventually, those thoughts will become less frequent and will start to feel less true.
