Accept yourself for who you are… In a world where value is placed on how you look and what you wear, it can be a challenge to try and “fit in”. However, did you know that your beauty and happiness start with you?
I am always in awe of nature and all the different types of flowers and trees there are on this earth. Nature comes in all shapes and sizes - just like humans. How could we judge nature and say that one flower looks more beautiful than another?
So, why would you want to look exactly like someone else? Don’t you want to have a unique beauty just like every flower on this earth is a unique beauty? What can you do get away from this idea that you don’t look good enough? Here’s my answer…
Stop watching all those music videos and stop looking at all those magazines with celebrities in them!
Okay, maybe this is hard for some of you. You’re addicted to magazines like US Magazine or OK! You have to know what the celebrities are wearing and all that juicy gossip. However, I’m here to tell you that this is detrimental to your self-esteem! You look at these magazines and think that these people are the norm. You want to look “normal” just like them - but what is normal anyways? You think that you will be accepted by society if you look and act like these celebrities. Maybe you think that your knight in shining armor will magically show up if you were skinnier or prettier or had bigger boobs.
Sorry, ladies, it just doesn’t work that way.
You will never be truly happy in life until you can accept yourself for who you are. You cannot depend on outside circumstances to make you happy. Happiness and beauty start with you!
