Dear Dio, this is hard to talk about & may sound trivial, but I have never felt beautiful or sexy. Guys don't notice me and people only tell me I'm attractive if I criticize myself. I've spent hundreds of dollars on makeup & clothes trying to make myself feel pretty, but I still don't feel good about myself. I want to improve my self-esteem because I'm going to have a baby daughter soon and I don't want to pass this on to her. How can I improve my self-esteem? *To submit an advice question for Dio, hit the "Contact/Info" tab and fill out the form under "Write Dear Dio."*

Double the advice this week! From Chris W.: Dio, I just got a job promotion and I'm very excited about it. However, the executive I worked beside makes racist jokes. I'm offended and don't like the way he treats some of the employees, but I don't know how to address it without making him angry and losing my new position. What do suggest I do?
From Chris D.: I'm good friends with these two guys and I really like one of them, but I'm not sure about talking to him because it could get awkward for all 3 of us. Also, I feel like the guy I like won't be interested in me because we're both feminine men and he usually goes for more masculine men. I don't know what to do, and I really don't want to lose these guys as friends.

Dear Dio, I saw J.Says' video about having trouble staying optimistic (http://bit.ly/nR68Vf). I have the same problem, questions and feelings. How can you stay optimistic? Sometimes I feel like optimism is a front, just so people won't feel so bad about how hard life is.-Tasha
