I do have very low self-esteem because of my acne. Usually, I do wear makeup. I don’t pile it on, but I always wear foundation, along with all the eye makeup. My self-esteem would, I’m sure, be much worse if I didn’t wear makeup, because I go to a school where almost everyone is rich and they walk around with their perfectly straightened hair, and perfectly made-up faces, in their perfect clothes. After I found out about this website, I’ve been trying to be more natural, the way God wants me to be. I’ve been pulling my hair up into a ponytail instead of trying to get my hair to look like one of the other girls, I’ve been trying to look more like one of God’s girls, one that he made perfect. And I’ve tried to wear less makeup, but I haven’t gotten too self-confident, because I think that I might get made fun of without it. I’ve also been wearing simple clothes. Not really dressing up. Some people would think that if you didn’t dress up, it may make you feel less confident. That’s not true! Because with my experience, I’m becoming more confident. I can hold my cross necklace and smile because I know that I am the way God wants me to be.
