Sadly, we've all experienced this.

If you're under the age of 30, there's no doubt in my mind that you've probably had a full blown conversation about Kylie Jenner's lips. Before she admitted to getting lip filler to enhance their size, Kylie's lips were a huge topic of speculation. 

When she came clean in an episode of KUWTK, fans finally had confirmation, but the star never really explained what made her change her look. Now, Kylie is opening up about why she felt insecure about her lips in the first place and it's heartbreaking.

On her show, Life of Kylie, the 20-year-old beauty entrepreneur talked about feeling rejected by a guy who made her feel undesirable at a young age.

"I was 15 and I was insecure about my lips. I have really small lips. And it was like one of my first kisses and a guy was like, 'I didn’t think you would be a good kisser because you have such small lips.' But I took that really hard."

"Just when a guy you like says that, I don’t know, it just really affected me. I just didn’t feel desirable or pretty. I really wanted bigger lips."

Kylie says that the comment stuck with her, and she eventually started to overline her lips. When the makeup wasn't giving her the look she desired, Kylie decided she was ready to have her lips done.

It's easy to forget that, despite having money, these girls experienced a lot of the same insecurities we all felt at that age. Unfortunately, guys making unwanted and damaging comments about girls isn't new. We're just sorry to hear that it's had such a profound effect on her life. 

This is just another reason to be mindful of the things we say to people. You never know what insecurities you're feeding into with a nasty comment.
