    I have been teased before and told that I was not pretty and ran to makeup to try and “fix” myself. I never really liked the way I look and I have been struggling with myself and my image.

    You see the people and young women on TV, who seem and look flawless, and for a while, I said to myself, I’ll never be like them and I lived like that for quite sometime. I have and had bad acne and I would spend 20 mins each morning covering them up, for I was ashamed. I don’t really have much now but I still feel as if i covered up a year of my life, it’s true, I did it for a year!! My hair was the other part, I got so desperate I put lotion in my hair!! Not doing that again!

    But then I found the love and comfort of the Lord, our God, and he opened my eyes to see, that I was made by Him, and he made me this way for a reason and that I’m just as loved with or with out it. I was saved and now I see that we are beautiful, unique, special, and amazing and that we are just….. us, no one can bring us down.

    Now when I put on makeup, I just put on lip gloss, that’s it, it took me a while to break away, but I’m glad I did.
