My sister always tells herself she’s fat and that she’s ugly. She says that’s”it’s okay and that some people just are”. She says she should just work on the thongs she’s good at like maths. I’m sorry but I really wanted to smack her when she puts herself down like this. It worries me to think that she’ll go out there and be carless with her emotions because the moment a guy validates her as being pretty she’ll fall for him. She says that I don’t know what it’s like as “I’m pretty and skinny”. It makes me want to cry when she says this, my eyes are tearing up now, which she doesn’t understand. I want her to be confident and KNOW that she is beautiful. She’ll go away to uni next year and I’m worried for her. She’s book smart but has no sense. I want her to be confident and not feel like she has to follow the crowd but I dunno. I go to boarding school, I see even smart girls lose their way when it comes down to the whole confidence issue. Personally, I started to read the bible more and attend a local church near my school which helped me realised how loved I was being a daughter of the king. So, I don’t compare myself to other girls and that truly makes me happy. The thing is my sister isn’t a christian so I can’t give her the advice of reading scripture or church because she doesn’t believe so won’t go. How do I help her? I want her to be confident in all areas whether it be school or her own self image. How do I help her?

Complement her. Tell her she looks nice and when something doesn’t say its not as beautiful as her. Don’t tell her something makes her look thin. Praise the things she dislikes about hers self.
