    Which would you rather have: A confident girl without a painted face or an insecure one who has a “flawless” face? I’ve noticed that the first ones are rare to come by and the latter ones are way too common. I’m currently working on loving myself. Last year, I was struggling during my freshman year. I mean, come on. It’s freshman year in high school. You see all the beautiful girls with the hair, the shoes, and the clothes. But not only that… the flawless skin.. the long eye lashes. The bright eyes. And I was sitting over here, feeling like a potato compared to them. I wished I had all the pretty friends they had. I wished I got boys’ attention like they did. But, I never found myself trying to be like them. I was like: “They’re so pretty. Why can’t I look like them?” But then, never did anything about it. I’m so glad I didn’t, or else I wouldn’t have embraced who I am- I wouldn’t have embraced the fact that I’m a gorgeous, breathtaking creation of God.
    I’ve had acne problems ever since I knew what acne was. I’ve gotten weird looks, disgusted looks even. Laughs, mocking jeers. I hated it. I hated genetics, environment, food, chocolate. Whatever cursed me with my face, I HATED. Nothing worked. The stuff out of the bottle. Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, Dove soap, Stride-x, Clearasil, homemade face masks- NOTHING! Forget it. My face clearing up wasn’t happening. And sometimes, I feel like it won’t ever go away. My eyes are uneven. My eyebrows grow like a Chia pet. My face is still acne ridden and my complexion uneven some days. But there is something that has changed; that was inside me. I’m learning that I’m beautiful. I know I’m not perfect, and thank God I never will be! Who’s to say what’s “beautiful” and not? Why do we LET society tell us we aren’t beautiful when God is YEARNING for us to realize we are? Which is more important here? Since when does beauty come in a bottle, a compact mirror, or a tube? It shouldn’t. Beauty, I promise you, is staring right back at you in the mirror. ♥

I’m so glad we’re not succumbing to the peer pressure of high school beauty trends! Thanks so much for posting this, you don’t know how much I needed those encouraging words today.
