Islamic marriage advice and family advice

Sad, frustated, astonished and sometimes hopeless. Where is my life? (5)

Something inside me is torturing me saying,’You are not so good looking as Non muslims, who have fair white skin, and they all have pretty girls and they are also admired by girls for their muscles, and attractiveness.
