Be Free to be YOU
If you have ever struggled with self-image, you are not alone. Looking in the mirror and hating what you see, is more common than not. And it's funny, no matter how much weight you loose, what you dress or how you change your face NOTHING CHANGES. And one day it hit me, nothing changes because we only see what we want to see... If we chose to see the worst of the worst, of course we will be miserable.
But seriously, what is normal? What is pretty?
In my mind pretty looks like skinny, blonde hair, blue eyed, victoria's secret models. Honestly though, that is total bullshit! No one really looks like that. But because that is all we see as perfection, that is what we expect. I am so done with this crap! I am done looking in the mirror and hating what I see. Standing there and being upset, doesn't accomplish anything, it just perpetuates the unrealistic stereotype of 'beauty' that is false. I am sick of someone constantly telling me what is and is not pretty.
We are ALL beautiful, every single person on Earth, because we are unique. And the world would be completely different if EVERYONE was not here today. The meaning of life (to me) is to find you, love you and enjoy the time we have here. And the best way to do this is to show others what joy and love is. By loving yourself, you can learn to love other. By liberating your inner beauty you can allow others' to be free. Be free of the pressure, be free to be you.
And the next time someone tells you you are not good enough, here is your response:
Remember that you are beautiful because you are unique and the world would not be the same without you!
